    Thanks for the grip tutorial Gollum, and thanks for the beginners tutorial Sith. They helps a lot of understanding after some reading ... hope I can master them and beat my new group ( their average age are 55), and me 35, rookie player.

    Default shot description

    Hi there
    This may sound fundamental but im a newbie and i have already done my best with the search function so bear with me.
    My query is can someone clarify the meaning of shot description for me? ie what is push shots, drives, spinning net shots, in fact a description of anything other than clears, smashes, drop shots, would be great. Im reading posts and getting confused with the terminology.

    Thanks.

    Best thing to do as a beginner?
    IMO is...................... *drum roll*
    have fun playing badminton,
    because if you don't enjoy it you won't play it.
    Enjoyment > Basics & Technique > anything else unimportant.

    And if possible, start early.
    Badminton generally becomes more fun the further you get into it.

    As for me, most important is to learn defence/return/stroke, and not forget about service... a good/clear/tidy service is most important. Another one is, TRY DO NOT PLAY WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE SAME LEVEL WITH YOU. LOOK FOR A SENIOR/ADVANCE/INTERMIDEATE PLAYER, PLAY WITH THEM, TRY TO UNDERSTAND WHICH ONE IS MOST IMPORTANT, POWER OR TACTICAL?...anyhow, MOST IMPORTANT AMONG ALL....ENJOY THE GAME!!!!!!!1

    As i learn, trick shot is every important, some people see is cannot use in the real game,
    here is some tips from my 23 years of experience,
    i use to trick my oponent left and right, i use my body.
    front and back is use my movement speed, fast and slow.
    When u totally master trick shot, is very useful.
    first, learning trick shot, wrist and hand has to be steady. if not trick will be trick back.

    Default Fancy stile helps a lot!

    for those who are starting badminton, i suggest a few things you should focus on and a few things that you should not focus on at this stage.

    FOCUS ON:

    - focus on the correct grip - read the grip guide in BC
    - focus on the correct stroke - ask a coach to show you.
    - focus on footwork
    - focus on fitness - jog/swim/bike - or do footwork drills

    DO NOT FOCUS ON:

    - trick shots - stop learning those strange shots.
    - fancy style - i have so many times seen beginners with really fancy looking hitting style but then they miss the shuttle. keep it simple.
    - strength training - leave this after you have learned your basic strokes
    - expensive racket - you will most likely be wasting money
    I know a dozen of players who just need to be fancy or they feel not good. Also it helps them to be always in time for the play and do their best! Have you not tried to put on a new dress for a paty and feel awrsome! This works in sports too! You feel already good and you stert to play good!

    by your karate coach because you late paying the fees...then buy a knee/ankle
    protective equipment (e.g brace etc)

    2. What you need to do before play

    first)
    - Eat well and hydrate adequately
    - Make sure your shoes fits properly and wear socks

    The advice on this thread is very useful, thanks. I never progressed beyond beginner's level as a child, and perhaps not playing for nearly 10 years is a blessing in disguise in that I have forgotten lots of things, and can go with the correct basics now. Hopefully with what I learn from this forum, Han Jian's book and badmintonbible.com I can make progress

    If you are starting badminton, you cannot yet realise how subtle and complex the sport is. At first, you must concentrate on the basics. As you progress, you will discover more about the sport; but you will only learn if you are willing to learn.
    great! I agree with you Gollum... Be teachable is one of the key...
