vary up your attacking style of play, they clear to slow the pace of the game down, you can try to keep it up with drives that make it very hard for them to lift the shuttle.

in other words, non-racquet leg forward if shuttle is coming from your forehand side, and racquet leg forward if shuttle is on the backhand side... if shuttle is straight ahead of u, take up the service receive position (only for your case if you're afraid of their clears, otherwise should stay squared to the net)...
keeping one leg forward will give you the inital push to move backwards quickly... on the other hand, if your feet are parallel to the net, you would first need to slightly shuffle your feet forward first, then push backwards... thus slower response...

rotanimod, maybe you are not standing on yr toes ready for the next shot, or you are too relaxed probably, aren't you?

Smash Smash Smash doesnt' always work if your smash isnt that great.
but you could 'Try' forcing them to hit shorter lifts so that your smash is closer to the net and more difficult for them to defend... also you can smash short lifts steeper than from the back court
you can do this by droping first and then smashing.. as long as your drop is tight to the net and doesn't travel too them (forces them to move up) you should be able to get a shorter lift.
- Steeper smashes are harder for them to lift deep
- Drops tight to the net sometimes draw shorter lifts
- Drop to the middle is effective at drawing shorter lifts
- Smashing at the exact same power each time is easy for them
- Even smashing slower or sometimes higher can throw them off
- If your on the attack stay behind thier lifts and don't let the shuttle go behind you - hit into the shuttle and keep it in front controlling the rally.
ALSO! if you are getting caught flat footed by thier clears its because you aren't watching them hit the shuttle and are not bouncing when they hit the shuttle.

My best suggestion would be to try drop shots for variation.
If they are comfortable defending smashes when they are ready and set, move them around. Use drop shots to the all parts of the net, including sliced cross-court drops. When one of them comes forward to take it, move that same player all the way back with a good deep lift.
They are giving you the initiative by lifting to you, so use it. Try to dictate the rally and get them to lift when they moving around and less comfortable.
Another suggestion is the flat drive down their backhand tramlines, all the way to the corner box. It can sometimes catch players out if they've set themselves too low.
