    Default can't return clear far enough

    I am a beggining player and I have an opponent who usually clears all the way to the back. Since i don't have much power, my returns end up close to net. Then they clear to the back again and I am constantly in the back. The strange thing is that this player who keeps hitting to the back and not using a drop to win is beating me while a person who incorporates different shots, I actually have a chance at. Maybe this person is just targeting my weakness. Any suggestions would be great.

    Thumbs up

    Hi tneiba. I would say learn to clear from baseline to baseline. If you can only do a drop from the baseline, then your opponent can easily predict your shot and win.

    Something that may help in clearing would be your footwork. If you can get to the baseline and be in a good position to clear, chances are you'll be able to do a good clear.

    There's lots of discussion in the forums on footwork and clearing. A better way of learning is to get someone experienced to teach you.

    Default Can't Clear Far Enough

    Chances are that you don't have the right grip so it prevents you from hitting far. It can also be due to your bad footwork or you are too slow in return because you should always hit the birdie when it's infront of you to execute a good return.

    If your at the recreational beginner level you might want to go talk to some more advanced players. I'm sure they would help you.
