strategy for a short serve
I'm a beginning badminton player and I have this opponent who serves short. When this happens, i try to hit it farther back but since i don't really have that much power, it ends up in the middle area. So that allows my opponent to hit it farther back and I end up not getting to hit it far enough and so i end up losing. So please help me to get a strategy to counter this.

train your forearm and wrist to be stronger, so you can send it way back on their court, or counter their short serve with a drop/net play, theres a chance they would lift.

To offer a strategy to counter one shot (ie/ short serve) when it appears you are missing a large part of the fundamentals will be a waste of your time...
(...if you cannot lift a shuttle on a short serve to the back court, something is fundamentally wrong).
Getting some basic lessons will get you on the right footing.

If he/she is hitting short, you could do a push as recommended by the others. Except instead of pushing to the rear court, you can push to the mid-court on the other side of the court. So if he's serving left, push right to the line and if he's serving right, push left to the line.

wow i usually find people who lift short serves have problems keeping the bird in, not having problems getting it far enough. maybe its just me :P anywayz, work on your lifts. have someone practice short serve with you. practice on different variations of response for the shot and consistancy. goodluck
