my serve is illegal? please help...
So i have been serving in double where i try to push the birdie over the other player by using my whole arm, is that illegal? No body complain so far until yesterday. He said that i'm not suppose to move my arm just the wrist only. I'm not sure he meant lower arm or upper arm.

Hmm, so you can move your upper arm right...I'm very good when serving like this, one time i can score up to 5 consecutive points.
Cooler, i jst want to make sure we are on the same page. i'm talking about backhand serve where the motion is continous and i use both lower and upper arm to place the birdie at opponent backhand corner.

hi there - there are a few things to check to make sure your serve is legal.
1. both feet are on the floor
2. you racquet is pointing in a downwards direction when you strike the shuttle
3. your racquet head strikes the shuttle below the height of your lowest rib
4. once your racquet head starts going forward it cannot pause or go back again.
if you violate none of these checks then your serve is legal - it doesn't matter what parts of your arms move at all.
hope this helps

it should read shuttle contact should not be above the waist level to be safe.
coops241180 said no higher than lowest rib level which is the absolute height contact level. Personally i rather concentrate on an accurate serve than making sure contact made at the highest allowing height.
