    Default any techniques to gain accuracy?

    do you have any techniques to gain my accuracy of hitting the shuttlecock because sometimes when it's my turn to hit it, it misses so I frequently loose the point.

    Practice is what you need. Ask your friend or partner to do some clearing with you. One of the good ways to practice accuracy.

    Default My 2 cents

    Practice makes perfect...see when you are doing a drill, you can tell wheather you are accurate or not. For example, if you are doing a net drill practicing drop shot. It is pretty obvious if the drop shot is over the service line on the other side, you miust be hitting too hard. Some idea for the rest of the shot, adjust and practice and more practice. So you can hit where you are actually aiming at. If you have a problem telling/judging wheather you are accurate or not...use something (to make it visilble.) like a tubes of bird to mark the location where you want to hit. That's all there is! Have fun!

    just like Casper said practice makes perfect... and try praticing half court with your friends, it builds up speed & accuracy with your shot

    while above is true that Practice makes you perfect, but you are not trying to achieve perfection yet, your problem is that 'you are missing the bird' this usually happens when u incorrcetly position yourself for smash, you need to study some videos on how to position your boday/head to make a smash or return, once you get your boday posotion right you will have least chance of missing the bird and only then you can paractice to acheive perfection, remeber, like any recquet game your body position plays very imporatnt role on what u can or can not achieve...........
    trsut above helps

    Default My bad

    Sorry that was my bad..i didn't read the whole post. Totally agree with Mandm..If you are missing the bird, definitely you need to look at your positioning (footwork) and your concentration as well (do you look at the bird all the time or you take your eyes off the bird (at the wrong time) and lose it in between?). maybe get a friend to look at you play and point out your mistake too..that will help. Keep trying!

    even in normal hitting, i always miss the shuttlecock. Either I miss it or the shuttle hits in the steel part of my racket.

    I think it is fundamentally poor timing which can be a result of not having the correct instinct. I have a friend who is starting to play badminton. He also has the same problem like you. I told him he just need to have the right instinct which I am sure can be acquired over time through practise. As you advance, most of the time you don't even need to look at the bird the instant when you are about to hit it because you have acquired that instinct. You'd rather look at where your opponent is standing.

    A swimmer learning to swim also may have coordination difficulty because he hasn't got the feel of when to kick his/her legs and when to sweep his/her hands/arms. You'll get there !

    the bird will always go where the racket points when contact is made if hitting down. if hitting up same idea but u have to gauge depth and height.

    correct bird will always go where the racket points when contact is made, BUT the guy did not report the problem with hitting, it was more like MISSING......

    You can try using the highest tension you can handle, to get better accuracy.

    i think it'd be better to be working on ur skill rather than ur racket....

    i go to drop-ins at the community centre on mondays,wednesdays, and fridays. after drop-ins, i take a bird and stand approximately the length from the service line to the baseline away from a basketball net. i then start doing underhand serves net and dont stop until i get 10 in.

    if u can do that consistently, ur wrist should be able to control where the bird goes at any time. due to that, i'm able to turn my wrist during games on overhead strokes so that it goes right down the line. however, i'm still unable judge the distance 100% of the time so often the bird will land out or around the doubles service line. the only time i can get a perfect shot on the baseline is on lifts.

    long story short, pop the bird into basketball nets =D

    I think the reason is you can not control the "hitting shuttle point". There are two kinds speed that will influence your accuracy. One is the shuttle's speed, the other is your racquet speed. You must to judge the speed of the shuttle and adjust the beginning time to move your racquet. Of course, this needs a lot practice.

    Well, that is assuming that at the contact point the racquet face is moving parallel to its normal. This may not be the case for heavily sliced shots.

    Now, this one good lesson I onced received from a coach was to pay attention to how the trajectory of the bird varied to changes in elbow position, wrist position, grip, contact angle, racquet trajectory, racquet velocity, etc. By hitting a sufficient number of repetition of a shot, it then became possible to understand the orders of magnitude of the effects of imperfections in your stroke.

    To the original poster, it seems that your problem is one that is more elementary than that. It appears that your problem is simply that of poorly developed hand-eye coordination and an grossly ungrooved stroke. Luckily, all you need to do is go out and hit lots and lots of shots, and that ability will come with practice. So don't worry too much about the intricacies of technique just yet, but rather just go out and hit!

    you can do to increase your accuracy is use your free hand to aim if your are a right hander use your left to aim your hand sight set to the shuttle. your free hand will also increase your balance so you can excute whatever shot with ease... make your racket point at the shuttle.. this is how i was thought by my coach.. im sure other coaches will say the same

    Good luck
