    I think maybe he means the four corners and halfway down on each side? Or maybe I'm completely wrong and it has something to do with the middle or whatever . But it's something like that I'm sure. Meaning that there are 6 important points on the court like Crazy said.

    It is easy to play singles if you have good stamina.What you need to do is to make high clears,utilize four corners and do cross court smashes when you get a weak return.But in doubles, you should make the opponents off balance by making them confused,get a desired return or lift by hard work.You should have good reflexes, strategy and understanding with your partner.More over, you should be more aggressive to win a doubles game.

    i love both singles and doubles, but i love doubles more.. it makes your mind really work because you cannot just place the shuttlecock anywhere because there are two people who will definitely get it.. you'll have to think of a strategy first in order to make that shuttle hit the court.. i love team work!

    singles however requires lots of stamina and great footwork.. if you don't have a good footwork, it will be very hard for you to go back and forth around the court..

    I have better footwork in singles than doubles. I can rely on clearing to neutralize the situation in singles, so I can play slower, use lazier footwork, but in doubles, if you dont get behind the birdie to give it a quick smash, you won't win.

    i agree completely that if your a singles person, try to avoid doubles, i never play doubles, its the fact that i make to many colisions, racket breaking, etc. i basically chase the shuttle myself, partner allways seems to get in the way, im a typical singler who hates doubles :P . its to diffrent, cant get used to it now, i play to much singles

    Some of the skills that you need to practice to become good doubles players are:

    - Net skills, more variative than net skills in singles, the master is Tony Gunawan
    - Drive skills, this is mandatory in doubles
    - Smash, in singles basically you smash to the empty court, in doubles is different, some people like to smash to the middle court, and smashing the body is also not a bad idea in doubles.
    - Defense, defense in doubles is much more faster, but mostly you stay on one side, whereas in doubles you have to cover left and right. Coordination with your partner is also needed, who takes the middle, etc.
    - Rotation, this is probably one of the most difficult ones to practice, most single player will always get confused with rotation. I have seen the basic video about the doubles rotation in one of the threads a while ago, search for it.
    - Return serve, I like hitting either to middle (opponent body), which may confuse the opponent, or simply return to the side and middle, it will also confuse the server and the other player in the back.

    Hope this helps ...

    Playing Mixed Doubles is a whole lot of different strategies again ...

    it's not exactly which is easier or harder. singles and doubles are completely different. singles is more about travelling the court, more physically demanding, doubles is more about attacking fast. and keeping the attack. in terms of complexity, say rotation and diff doubles strategies, i would say it's more complex than singles, but that doesn't definitely make it harder/easier
