    Default Need help on Badminton Terms

    My club mates try to help me with my doubles games, but due to the fact that my Chinese badminton vocabulary is very limited, I could hardly understand what my friend was saying. Only the occassional nods -_- only to realise that wasn't what he meant. Any BC fellows can help me in this sticky situation? Terms I want to know in Mandaring are as follows.

    Forehand, Backhand, Smash, Drop, Net, Drive, Clear, Lob, Cross Court, Down the Line, Straight smash.

    These are all I can think of at the moment, if you guys want to add in a couple more like Reverse-forehand-between the legs-cross court drive... in chinese it would be cool too

    Thanks heaps.

    Drive = peng qiu(?)
    Peng refers to flat shots. Usually during training sessions it's referred to peng/cau/dong as for drives/pushes/defense.
