    Definitely not #4. After a clear, e.g. you don't use running steps (implied above) to return to the center quickly. After a net shot, you don't want to retreat "quickly" to the center. And where do you think the center is?

    Not able to understand #11.

    Returning somewhere near the centre of the court is certainly a good start rather than being caught "ball watching" as many players seem to do. I think that is what is implied by point 4 rather than being directly in the middle.
    Exactly where you should move to after hitting the shuttle varies depending upon your style, speed around the court, reach, and where the shuttle has just been hit to, and how quickly the shuttle is likely to come back at you. This is something that has to be learnt through experience, but getting back someone around the middle and hopefully being ready to move in any direction is not a bad starting point.

    Return to base. Yes, the different footwork for different play. And different base for different play. There should be a separate thread for forming a base, where, and footwork at different levels.

    I think he means that you should take the shuttle as high as possible and keep your body lowered when moving. Bending your knees slightly, as in keeping a low position rather than standing tall, helps you get around faster.
