Thread: Post videos of yourself playing

As mentioned before, we had 2 team matches yesterday, and I was able to tape my matches. As we had the luxury of playing with 5 and 6 men respectively, I was only needed in the MD (still not quite recovered from the calf injury). First match was a tight affair, second one a bit clearer, despite me playing with an unfamiliar partner in that one.
Pretty satisfied with the difference compared to the training vid Smashes were actually smashesat times, and the movement was more fluid already.
Looking forward to getting back to training now. The Blackroll had an astonishing influence on the calf pain! Apparently there's lots of small muscles that can get very tight and painful - and tight calf muscles are always bad for your Achilles!

http://youtube.com/watch?v=R_6gaESzJcE basically all I'm looking for is am I using my grip right? As I have been trying to break my pan handle habit, I apologize for the angle and the ignorant people who walk on the courts.

If you're not holding it this way, then it's not right. http://www.badmintonbible.com/articl...basic-grip.php
If you're not pronating this way, then it's not right. http://youtu.be/HNVC5PVJyPQ
But you've already shown improvement in your technique. Just need to focus on pronation more.

To focus on your pronation, think of it as swinging with the elbow leading and your racket edge first towards the bird, then just before strike at the last instant, quickly pronate and whip the racket face squarely into the bird. Do it slowly first with less power in order to get the timing and technique right, then gradually increase speed and power.

First posting of my video. Played doubles with my regular friends, I was in orange at the closer side of the court. I would say that our level is average intermediate, still have some unforced errors and I wish to have more intensity and longer rallies
Any suggestion and advice are welcome, thanks !

there is too much room between you and your partner when you guys serve. You are very upright throughout a really - need more knee bend to load your quads. Split step is also generally missing.
When you're at the net you drop your racket to your ankles.
3.39 you should stay at the net and your partner should rotate to the back
On overheads your elbow looks too low.
4.31 - why play to the rear court? The space is right in front of you
4.33 you should follow your block in to the net. Your partner should rotate round
5.10 shows why you should hold racket higher at the net
5.30 another block that should be followed in (since you opponent isn't attacking it)
6.02 follow your net shot!

Thanks for the heads up @amleto !
Yes, I am not so good at the net area. My court awareness need to be improved a lot and I have to train my legs to inject more pace during rallies as well.
Tomorrow morning will be the next session with the same group, I will keep your advices in mind. Hope I can play better after learning those mistakes through the video.

amleto has a very good point about following your blocks and net shots. Firstly, you can anticipate the return better than your partner. Secondly, just the sheer presence of your rushing in will create mental pressure on your opponent and he'll think twice about playing a net return so he will most likely lift, which is what you want in a good doubles game.
