Maybe a good idea would be to visit more clubs through badm. england website to see whats available in your area. Just go there with improvement as your aim, and to always take critics as a positive to benefit your game.

Any points you could give towards the videos ?

Your anticipation level seems rather unbalance also, so I think it would be best to work on your basics. Only once you done this you will notice what you actually do wrong and can conserve a lot more time and energy in game.

what county u from?
dont you have county squad to go to? every county has their under 15, 17, and 21's. and then obviously the seniors. playing in tournaments will only get you so far. if ur doing something wrong, doing it wrong more wont improve. u need somebody qualified or at least with a bit more knowledge and experience to correct it. sometimes you wont even realise you are doing it.
i would suggest you contact ur counties development officer and they will be able to suggest to you relevant clubs and coaches around the area. as well as point out suitable sparring partners.

Since you are sponsored by Victors , they may be able to find you a coach and good players within your region

There you go LDrules, this will help ;
Go through all the episodes (think there are 13) , this is only part 1 of the first episode
Then on youtube : type in
''planetbadminton'' and there are some good singles match you can feast your eyes on
however, they are not replacement in finding a coach who would be there on the court with you ..

As for your videos, there probably isn't much that I can add that hasn't been pointed out already.

Regarding my serve...
.... The other day, I was playing, another guy, (who is better than the one I am playing in the video) and he wasn't very happy with me. He said that my serve was above waist, and that it would be a foul, I have used this serve, for the last two months now, as it is the most useful, and effective, is my serve to high on the waist ? I think he was just saying that, as he was unable to return my flick serves effectively. Also he complained, about the amount of time I took between points, I usually take about 10 seconds between points, but he said that I would be disqualified, if I did that, as I was taking too long and not running to get the shuttle. I think he I'd just a moan, but does he have a point on:
1. My serve is it too high(you can see it in the 2nd video better)
2. Do I have to run direclty to get the shuttle, or can I walk slowly, and collect it ?

1. yes look at video 1 time:0.28 thats clearly higher than your bottom rib
serve @ time 1.12 might possibly be legal but with the crazy angle its hard to tell
serve @ time 1.24 illegal looking at the angle of your arm
serve @ time 1.55 50/50 tho you racket is almost horizontal at contact
serve @ time 2.19 illegal
serve @ time 2.39 50/50
these are all my opinion
i will have a watch of video2 now

--Note-- TIME 0.13-- When recording videos of yourself playing to post on WWW dont de wedgie yourself right infront of the camera
serve time 0.24 illegal
serve time 0.34 50/50
serve time 1.16 50/50
serve time 1.28 swaying towards legal
serve time 1.48 illegal
i give up im tired :P
from what i can you your serve is mainly ILLEGAL
but you should take a video from the side to be sure

the serve to me also looks high on the waist. however, taking a little bit of time inbetween points is absolutely fine

To answer question number 2:
I wouldn't personally run to get the shuttle, neither would I walk slowly. Just a standard walking pace is fine. From looking at the videos you posted your pace is fine. He was just trying to put you off I think. Unless of course you were much slower in the other match.
The problem with your serve is the racket starts off below your rib but you contact the shuttle far higher. I think it might help if you had the shuttle almost touching the racket when you serve and check where it is in relation to your body.
So instead of swinging the racket forwards bring it into your body more then swing out. If you have the right technique you should still be able to flick it to the back of the court. Although it won't be "easy". You will also find controlling the serve less challenging.
You could always serve it short most of the time,as that serve is better for that and flick occasionally, to catch your opponent out. Otherwise you may as well use the forehand long serve instead.
Hope that helps, I really should post a video of me playing at some point... Not that I'm particularly good, but the feedback given by others here is useful!
