I prefer dropping it down about 10-12 inches (so that it's just above the belt). Works best for me.

Just another question about service here. What's the rule with the follow-through a serve? Can the racquet be pointing upwards?

The drive serve issue doesn't bother me much - it's more the fact most people are clueless where their first rib is - which is pretty much your belly button ( give or taek how big you gut is, your belly button in that case may be WAYYY lower than your first rib. .

So i would assume a forward, backward and forward serve as illegal even if its a fluid movement.
9.1.1 neither side shall cause undue delay to the delivery of the service once the server and the receiver are ready for the service. On completion of the backward movement of server's racket head, any delay in the start of the service (Law 9.2), shall be considered to be an undue delay
9.1.7 the movement of the server's racket shall continue forwards from the start of the service (Law 9.2) until the service is delivered (Law 9.3);
9.2 Once the players are ready for the service, the first forward movement of the server's racket head shall be the start of the service.

Is a forward stroke the start of a Service stroke or not?
A forward movement/swing of the racket-head, followed by a backward and a forward swing in a Badminton Service is definitely illegal (even if it is in a fluid movement).
This is because the receiver suffers a great disadvantage, that is; the receiver does not know which of the server's forward strokes is the start of the Service.

I just watched Indonesia Djarium super series 2010 and wished to comment as below:
mixed double final: Mateusiak service... isn't it a bit high and also in two movement?
Women single final: Saina Nehwal service also seems above her waist height
I have recently seen alot of juniors playing in open tournament and they copied the pro back hand serve in single and double. A lot of them are above the waist. a recent Danish boy who play in UK also have very strange serve. I hope the European coaches will have a look and address this.
I think tournament organiser or governing body should issue directive to curb these illegal serve otherwise it will get out of hand & we are accuse of being a cheat
A number of the european pro have strange serve too which I am not sure how to interpret them
parhaps someone else can have a look and comment

9.1.5 the whole shuttle shall be below the server's waist at the instant of being hit by the server's racket. The waist shall be considered to be an imaginary line round the body, level with the lowest part of the server's bottom rib;

Is it possible to make a shuttlecock tumble with a legal service?
08-19-2010, 08:51 PM #48
Yes, as long as you do not touch the feathers during service with your racket at any time.
08-20-2010, 04:23 AM #49
Yeah, that's the rule. But is it really possible if you consider placement etc.? Do you know anybody doing this?

- Hit base only -- okay
- Hit base, then hit feathers -- okay
- Hit feathers, then hit base -- fault
- Hit base and feathers at the same time -- fault
- Hit feathers only -- fault
Being practical, this rule was invented purely to ban the S-serve. If you're not playing an S-serve, then you should be fine.
If you don't know what an S-serve is, then you're not playing an S-serve.

Thanks, Gollum! So the S-serve is illegal...
What about a tumbling shuttlecock similar to the net shots played with spin? I don't think that it's possible to do this legally if you consider placement and distance. What do you think?
