1) You need to make the practice more open and game like.
2) In a match you'll play too many loose shots because of what you do in practice.
3) The first 3-4 shots in the practice where you return the shuttle to mid court with "nothing shots". This is a waste of time.
4) Forehand block jump is the practice. You need to think when and where this should be done. It would be more gamelike if the feeder placed the shots into the forehand rearcourt corner so that you could practice varying your angle of return, straight smash, drop or clear, cross court drop etc.
First three shots/ blocks are for what exactly? Maybe trying to bring the opponent forward? Therefore you could try a sequence to block to the net to bring the feeder/opponent closer.
1) block, block, net shot, then your feeder would lift away to forehand rearcourt for you to practice the block jump etc.
Basically try to utilise the whole drill and make it more gamelike

I think, everything is fine
the only thing I can recommend would be
for net shot, try to use more wrist power, you tend to use your arms (you lift your arm instead flick your wrist) resulting the bird travels really slow (an instant kill if in double)
btw, not really about your training, but the court is pretty close with the wall
and, is that a Tpro?

The gym we're in is pretty bad, the ceiling is very low as well - but it's for free (as we're both in the club) and we have 5 hours available every Tuesday. There are only a few low-level players there who let us train in peace, which is nice - on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays you have to leave the court after one match and depending on the number of people there may have to wait quite a bit. Fridays are better but shorter.
Yes, the racket at the end is a TPro

Two and a half years has past since picking up a racket and playing badminton... entered the hampshire bronze in uk for some experience, and got put in the same group as the number 2 seed .. anyway, here's a short video:
im the one in black
still need to get some more confidence and discipline in the game.. i think tournaments can only help you adjust to the competitive level

That being said - you play pretty good, very impressive. Better, cleaner technique than me

thanks Jackie and Avenger... honestly, i dont train at all, just play for fun.. havent played in a couple of months... just thought id enter as it was close to home.
Met a ex malaysian pro, Allan Tai, and he said similar things.. good basics, but i need to start working on drills and train for explosive power, be more motivated, dont give up, confidence, play in more competitions etc. he thought i was ok though for a person learning how to play from watching videos for 2 years lol..
thanks for the advice, will probably start training and workout to improve.. never really thought about getting really good at the sport as i started so late... but the more i play, and the more feedback and criticism i get, the more it makes me want to get better..

Hi babyface, not heard from you for a while, I can see that your badminton is carrying on improving. for someone who only been playing for 2 and a half year with such techniques it is a good achievement.
The next step you need is to have a quicker footwork around the court and play more games so you have more experience in reading your oopponent shots thus you would be split second quicker. Defensive skills needed to be work on , it seems like that you are giving up on some shots.......you always need to be ready and concentrate ......once you lift that shuttle , return to the base....look where your opponent is ......... watch his racket and his wrist just before the impact of the shuttle (not his arm cus it can be deceiving) ........read where that shuttle is going....... and return the shuttle to space if possible.
BTW , lifting it to their backhand side is always a + and crosscourt lifting is ok for singles as long as you get it close to the line !!
You need a coach , is there not a qualified university coach for you lots ?

dont go to university anymore.. finished, so moved back home.. therefore i dont actually play anymore... just thought id enter for fun... definitely need to move faster.. the thing is, i think its down to not concentrating, hence giving up on rallies etc... will probably start playing again soon.
thanks for the replies

this is my 2nd season in competition (3rd in a club), I play a lot but I don't practice enough.
I've reached the lowest rank possible but I feel like I don't have improved enough and I'm trying now to practice against stronger oponents.
here are some clips from my latest tournament.
Unfortunately, my partner and I are facing club mates, so there's some pression because we know each other but they have not played as good as usual.
These are the end of the 1st game and the complete 2nd game. Please feel free to post comments on me and the other players and I'll tell them afterwards (I'm the tiny guy with the blue shirt):

Some obvious points:
For you, you're probably the best of all four. But you have one major flaw that you need to quickly correct: you're starting your serves too low, practically below your belt line. By doing this, you've already disadvantaged yourself before the rally even starts. Your partner has the best serve of the four; ask him to teach you how to hold and serve it properly from just below the waist.
For your partner, he may be too old to change and already has developed this long term bad habit. But his forehand power shots eg smash/clear involves too much shoulder: he's trying to muscle these shots too much. Instead, he has to learn to use his forearm and wrist/finger power more. Whip it thru instead of trying to pound it thru.

there are 5 parts.
this was after my singles matches.. just woke up after a nap in the hall (due to waiting for 4 hours!!) so decided to play defensive in the game.

thanks, I've already noticed that I've been serving too low. But thanks to you, I have tried to serve higher and my opponents that my serves are too good to be attacked so thank you so much, works pretty well.
I've told my friends for their points.
Anyone else ? Opinions ? ^^
