Haha.. I like scooping the shuttle.. I can do it forehand and backhand.. I can do it keeping the shuttle on the racket or flicking it up.. usually I flick it up and do another scoop in the air and flick it up into my hands.. it makes up for my poor gameplay skills, lol..

one of my coaches who was teaching us beginners at the community center told us to practice scooping the shuttle up. he said something like "you have to look cool when you pick up the birdie" hahahaha
i wasn't good at it at that time (being only something like grade 5).. and gave up in the end. i practiced recently, and now its easy for me to do

Does anybody pick up the shuttle by tapping down on the end of the feathers with your racket causing the shuttle to do a little tumble and land on your racket? It's a bit more advanced than your standard scoop though .

Hehe I had played for 3 yrs before I could do it Now, I can do it in both forehand and backhand
Anybody tried the little trick where you hit the shuttlecock on the feathers with the top of your racket? It makes the shuttlecock bounce up to you, pretty neat - but very difficult IMO.

If the shuttle is in this postition,
scoop it up from the lower left or lower right.
If it's in this position,
scoop it up from the upper left or upper right.
Here are the steps in scooping it.

It is! You can actually get it within a week (including the time when you pester those guys on a game).

When starting to learn pick-uping of shuttle, you can find useful to tie to the shuttle a piece of thin thread 1.5-2 meter long, and hold the other end if this thread with your non-racket hand. It will help you to return the shuttle from all the unexpected places it could otherwise fly away.

scooping it up
you need racket control. you're racket has to be fast enough for the shuttle not to fall off when you scoop it. when you scoop it up slowly, what happens is that the shuttle just gets pushed along.
you'll eventually get it. it takes practice so, be patient.

lol....its just practice...after a few weeks of playing...i actually got it!! i think of it as getting your racket under the bird so u can flick it upwards and catch it. plus..it looks cool...XD

WHen i started playing i didnt really care about this. BUt as i found out when practicing with new players they often miss the shot and dont go get it. I soon get tire of bending over picking up the birdie. So i decided to learn the scooping, i found that instead of being agressive you have to be gentle because if u do it too fast u will flick the birdie away. It only took me 2 days to learn it.

Here are some pics.... They're big but blah
First of all, don't start like this. You'll get no control of the shuttle..
Start like this
I don't recommend the follow, because it is hard to control the shuttle
If you do it correctly, you end up with this
