backhand clears, drive serves.
hi, i would say im a pretty good allround player. service is good, net play is good, attacking is good, footwork is ok. two things im trying to wrok on and just wanted opinions on are:
backhand clear - can anyone give some tips on this as i cant get full distance. any nad habits that can happen or why i may not be getting full length.
drive serve: im trying to add another serve to my armory - backhand drive serve designed to go flat and towards opponent or straight down the line. im struggling with consistency though as sometimes it goes high or wide but most often too long.
thanks a lot guys/girls

Drive serve sounds really difficult. Reading your explanation sounds like you broke one of the rules in serving a birdie.

At impact, the whole of the racket head must be discernably below the whole of the hand holding the racket.
Even flick serves can break this rule quite easily. Drive serves almost always break it, although some drive serves -- less aggressive ones -- are within the rules.
Very hard to tell whether your service is legal without the help of a service judge, or a precise video recording.

Aren't drive serves extremely dangerous? I mean, an over-average player would just drive it right back or perform a faster net drop than he would against a simple short serve?
Last time I tried that I almost ate it. My ducking's awesome now, though that's nothing to brag about...

I'd like to take your advice on the video though.

There must be a thousand threads in here about backhand clear by now,
but it's hard to beat
a) getting a coach
b) seeing it done, e.g. a video from www.ibbs.tv, or by watching people

you need to get the right timing and your wrist speed must be very quick.
Also playing badminton for a few years helps this so have you been playing long?
You also need to concentrate all your power in your arm and fuly extend it to maje the shuttle go very far.
