    Default **Experimental** Singles Response Drill/Training

    Whats up guys!

    I decided to throw this in. It sure helped me alot today at the courts, I hope it does the same to you.
    So, me and my little brother ( 12...dont underestimate his speed, pretty fast shots for a tween) start off by warming up (clears, etc.) , playing a short match, then the idea hit me.

    The "machine" (In this case, my brother), has no rules. It can hit as far back as the Doubles line and it will be considered in, it has no Service Line. It can shoot from infront of the net, and can shoot any kind of shot it wishes ( Considering a reasonable distance for the said shot ).

    The "machine" can "double tap" a shuttlecock (tapping it once or twice, as much as "it" wants, to confuse the player as to what "it" will do).

    The player has normal rules, and plays as if he is in a singles match.


    What do you think?


    This actually helped alot in response, and after 3 30-minute sessions, I can really feel a difference!

    Thanks,

    Golden

    Okay, you have 2 guys.

    Person A (The "machine"): He doesnt have to obey ANY rules (No service line), and when he is firing off shots, he treats it as a DOUBLES game (the second white line). Any type of shot Person A wishes.

    Person B: Must hit back the shot from Person A. The aim is not to BEAT the "machine", but to keep the birdie up, which is Person B's responsibility. All Person A (The "machine") has to do is keep doing different kinds of shots, at different heights and distances, or better yet, try his best to confuse Person B with Trick shots if possible.

    Does it make more sense now?

    Correctly judging whether opponent's shots are going in or out is important. Do you think it might affect your ability to judge landings in a real game?

    Isn't this the same as just regular feeding drills?

    Driller - returns bird with a specific shot (though you really didn't mention what kind of shots the person can do).

    Feeder - hits anywhere

    Why bother with the "double-tap" rule? That never happens in badminton, and you need to learn how your opponent's shot quality selection are affected by your own shot quality and selection. Otherwise, you might as well use multiple shuttles so you can get a more continuous feed.

    This drill is basically a singles drill used for consistency. And you should be using your footwork during the drill. Though he has altered it somehow by using just one shuttle and doing weird things by hitting hit twice to create some sort of confusion.
