    I'm playing almost a year, abou two times a week. It's back hand clear for me. It's still too short straight and xcourt after awhile my opponents get notice that my backhand clear are short. Smash is natural in power and direction since I'm playing tennis in highshool.

    i will give you some tips

    smash only when you have the opportunity

    and you can recover yourself should your opponent returns

    this applies to single

    in doubles, best is you smash where your partner is

    of course not his head but somewhere there in front of him

    that way should any loose return from your opponent i am sure

    your partner knows what to do

    This is actually a good tip.

    Thanks.

    What I keep on reading about doubles and smashing is that one must attack and smash if he has the opportunity. They usually leave blank the part of recovering the shot should the opponent make a loose return.

    This answers when i should smash but when should I drive? I also find doing the half-smash quite difficult.

    My weakness is my style of play in regards to doubles.

    I am a singles player ever since the very 1st year I was introduced to the badminton game. I started picking up the racket since primary 4 and was selected to represent my school in the inter-district competition and then the inter-state competition where we have coaches who trained us 4 days a week so basically I was trained as a singles player all along.

    My fundamental/basic is ok therefore I do not have much problem with my shots or gripping technique (backhand, dropshot, net play etc...) but the problem that still haunt me until now is the switch of style from singles to doubles.

    In doubles I have difficulties with my movement (speed) especially at the front of the court (I couldn't cover the net area completely), failed to launched my self forward fast enough, not good enough at interception and sometimes poor combination. This is due to my footwork and technique where in singles you are trained to move and play fluidly.

    On shots wise, its not intense enough. I tend to emphasize on shuttle placement rather than play with speed and power which is essential in doubles. Meaning to say sometimes I tend to lift the shuttle (a big no-no) instead of playing an attacking drive.

    Still has a long way to go.

    i learned the backhand clear when my friend told me to imaging snapping and whipping a large handkerchief. i kept on picturing the movement and i practiced it everytime i played. i learned it after a month.

    I find the backhand clear a hard shot, and I still have problems with my smash. Its not that hard to do one, but to master it...I lack some accuracy, so I dont have such good angles although I'm pretty tall (6"2). The only smash that comes naturally to me is the around-the-head crosscourt smash.

    In singles, you should drive if your opponent does a loose shot or tries an attacking clear that you can intercept. Do a drive if he's close to the net (=>small reaction time) and a dropshot if he's in the back of the court (=>long distance to cover - a drive is inefficient here 'cause the opponent has enough time to react and short distance to cover)

    In doubles, you should drive any loose or half-court shots, especially if you're already attacking and the opponents do a half-court shot your net player cant intercept. Getting on the offensive is essential, so you should always try and do the most aggressive shot possible (i.e. no dropshot if they're in attacking formation), although sometimes a well-placed block can be better than a drive.

    so essentially, if the opponent gives a good clear and is already on a side-by-side formation, a drop shot shouldnt be used. good point.

    Only if they are way back in court or defend every smash - then a disguised drop can break up their formation or the change of pace can cause an error.
