backhand clear technique
hi everyone, was just wondering - i know what grip to use ( altered backhand grip with thumb on angle of racket) and that you should have back turned facing back of court - lunging in to corner. thing is i struggle to get any distance just flicking and find myself swinging. any advice.

Track the bird with BOTH eyes by not turning your head too far back so that one eye is obscured by the bridge of your nose.
Identify the contact point as the bird is dropping, start your stroke BEFORE the bird gets to the contact point. If you track four points of the bird's travel path, and contact point is, say point 4, then start your stroke at point 3, even though the bird is well away from your ideal contact point. Adjust till you get the timing right.

It's a good grip, but only for backhands in front of your body.
Of course, we may not be talking about the same grip. It's easy to confuse them without a demonstration.

ANother big problem people have is having the shuttle too close to their body when they hit it, it should be about 2 feet outside the lione of your shoulder when you hit it. The movement is very difficult to execute if the arm is closer than that.

got my racket with me: i don't use the full-normal-grip, that makes it impossible for me to swing further than my shoulder, and completly incapable of crossing...
i sue somewhat of the universal grip: panhandle-grip, thumb slightly behind it...is this what you mean by altered-Backhand grip?

What he teaches you is correct. And nowadays, it IS an "official" grip, as taught on the new Level 2 Badminton England coaching syllabus.
His explanation is accurate too

I've been looking at the backhand article, and it refers to figure 1. There are no figures there, I don't think - can I access it somewhere, or was it not uploaded?
