    No one has so far mentioned the obvious one - serve training. For example, if you can't get your low serves to tickle the net and drop on or very close to the tee five times out of six, you can practice to improve that important skill.

    Then try flick serves but using exactly the same stance and prep as for the low serve, to leave the opponent guessing till the very last second. And the shuttle has to land within a few inches of the back service line. Getting that right takes a LOT of solo practice.

    Also, the action and power required for the occasional low serve to the sideline is tricky because they often go too high or too short and the serve action is awkward - not that you want to serve cross-court often, but just very occasionally it helps when your opponent is crowding you at the centre. But it has to be very very good, so it has to be practiced.

    I think one of the things you could work on without a coach is strategy. You can do that by playing with different types of players. You can do that by playing with the local badminton club or in tournaments. Strategy is very important and is the key to be a successful badminton player
