    If your racket is getting scraped on the side while scooping the shuttlecock form the floor does that mean you are doing it wrong?

    The racquet shouldn't even scrape the floor.. when I do it, i just quickly turn my wrist to scoop the shuttle up. haha.. beginners tend to drag the shuttle and the racquet on the floor

    this sounds ridiculous, but i learned how to scoop the shuttle from the floor, then i learned how to scoop the shuttle mid-air, before i even learned the rules of badminton.. :O

    Here is a brief video tutorial. It's kind of short but you'll get the idea of how to do it properly by seeing it in slow motion. It also teaches you another trick of scooping the bird off the floor reversely. Hope this helps.

    P.S. feel free to add this to the front of the thread.

    Here is a Youtube video of picking the shuttle from the floor with your fingers (also the backhand method).

    * Important technique: notice the position and direction of the racket/rim next to the shuttle before the U motion begins.

    There is another more advanced method of picking up the shuttle:

    tapping the feathers to pick up the birdie
