    Default question about clearing

    hello ! it's my first time posting . just joined I have a few questions about clearing

    when u clear , do u let the birdie go over you and hit it ? or hit it while it's infront of u?

    also , I heard that there are many types of clears , attacking , defensive or normal one. what do you differently for the clears ?

    lastly , when you hit a clear , is your whole body suppose to turn ? and your legs rotate as well ?

    thank you.

    The point of a attacking clear is to make the shuttle fly just over your opponent and its just out of reach therefore it will drop at the quickest possible time.

    A defensive clear is lifting the shuttle much higher giving you time to recover and making it drop almost vertical to the base line. This shot is more difficult for your opponent to play since its dropping directly down and he/she will need to generate her own power when striking it.

    When hitting a clear, your not always in the ideal position, therefore train yourself to do it in all sorts of situations.

    Hit the bird when it's in front of you. Let your racquet head be parallel to the net when you hit the bird.

    and you should start with your shoulders perpendicular to the net; you rotate your body to generate power during the shot, the more distance you need to hit the more important the body rotation is. for a 'baseline to baseline' clear you probably will have to rotate your body and legs during the shot, especially if you also hit it HiGh which gives you time to recover to a good defensive position.

    The principle is simple. The stroke is similar for attacking clears, defensive clears, and smashes. The difference between these three strokes is the angle of contact of your racquet face with the shuttle. If you hit it square or with the racquet face leaning slightly backwards, you are executing an attacking clear. Lean the racquet further back, you then have a defensive clear. Lean the racquet forward-more so than for the attacking clear-you then have a smash. The angle of contact determines if it goes up, or down, or parallel.
