If you were playing Sherades, how would you do badminton? ;)
If I was with my badminton buddies, I'd probably do a jump smash
But if you were to do against the main stream crowd, how would you do it?

i would jump smash, but people might think its volleyball... why is badminton so unpopular

I'd do one of the following:
(1) A forehand serve -- afaik, no other racket sports has anything similar,
especially when you swing your racket arm higher above your shoulder.
(2) Backhand clear -- afaik, no other racket sports has anything similar either

The forearm swing might be mistaken for baseball throw. But then again, if people were doing baseball, they'd probably be batting heh.

you throw the baseball, don't you fold your arm in the first phase of the throwing?
In a forehand serve, the racket arm should start pointing at the floor, then with
a smooth motion it goes up to hit the shuttle -- therefore it's quite different

sad to say - if you were playing charades with the main stream crowd - imitate serving or hitting the bird like you were playing backyard or picnic badminton. they might more easily recognize those motions than the proper form. correctness or elegance is lost on the ignorant masses.

In the badminton videos I've watched, the forehand serve looks different than moves of any other sports.... So I'll say forehand serve
