And why would you need more place if the shuttle is very close to your racquet when serving?

Honestly I don't know thats just what my coach says.
Most people I see serve with their racket foot foward

So confusing though (confuzzled)
I guess there is no correct way
Maybe both works (maybe your own personal reference of what you like better)
Lol both of our coach says different

You can serve anyway you want...as long as you are good at it...but as the poll and most pictures suggest...having your racket foot forward is the accepted way.

i think gong ruina's one is more orthodox?

I guess it depends on preference ....
either way , I don't think it really matter which foot you serve with in infront -> as long as you get the shuttlecock over the net , as low as possible and as close to the short service line as possible

Tried to simulate a backhand serve with the non-racquet foot forward just now - it felt weird, as if I could fall if I need to lunge forward to return the reply.
Normally after serving, my racquet foot will more or less return parallel to the same level on court as my non-racquet foot, getting into the position of the net minder.
With non-racquet foot forward... felt as if I could fall backwards.
Hi Mag, long time no see.

I saw KDM doing a serve with non-racquet fin front. I usually put them square

If you have a deceptive high backhand flick, such 'minimum distance' serves can get you outright winners.

non racket hand.......is incorrect
id say its because of the footwork need to get to your next shot
suppose your serving from the right box(lets just say your right handed) and you serve short and your opponent drops to your left(backhand), you'll have to swing your right leg all the around your left to lunge for the return(pretty sure none of you lunge with your non racket hand) and this should result in time loss(minimal, but of course in badminton every nanosecond counts) and sometimes loss of balance
now, if the racket hand leg was in front, your pretty much free to lunge whichever direction you want with no time loss and perfect balance
i dunno, i try to figure out most of the things by myself without a coach telling me how to make every single one of my moves, so this is just my line of thinking, if its totally off, tell me so

Regardless of your initial feet position, you should perform a split step immediately after serving. Your feet will now be side by side, your leg muscles loaded, and you will be ready to move quickly to either side.

I would like clarify some of my points in my last post. What I ment was some people lean over the service line and think that they can get a short serve close to the front service line. You need to serve higher to get it into the service box and this makes the serve a easy kill. I hope you agree that it is close enough to stand very close to the T and that is as close as you need to stand. Leaning over the line does not help.
