Hey guys, this is my first time uploading videos of myself playing. I'm wearing black and red shirt. Have put on some weight since my schooldays so my movement around the court is a bit lazy and sloppy. Haha.. Feel free to comment.. sorry about the not-up-to-par quality as it's recorded from my handphone.

You have a really good and consistent low serve! That's crucial for doubles. I wish I could get mine as consistent, nowadays I'm hitting the net a little more than I'd like because I think I'm trying to make the serve too good.
Other than that, the big thing I would say is probably the 3rd or 4th shot of the rally when you're serving is probably the weakest point. Most often you can't keep the attack because either you or your partner cannot make a threatening enough shot. That could also mean that your opponents have very good return of serves though. This has probably more to do with footwork and anticipation. Your partner missed a lot of shots at the net too, so that's more for him to work on rather than you. I think you set your partner up a good amount of times with your smash, so that part is out of your control except to smash so hard and placed so accurately that it's not coming back =p.

Hi chip167. You are a good player there are Just a few weaknesses that I picked up on whilst watching you.
I would like to see you threatening the net more, and it would be beneficial for you to help the rear court player out. What I mean by this is that as soon as the opposition clear the shuttle to the rear court on your partners side, you should straight away move into the "T" and cover the net.
You should threaten the net by having your racket held up, and looking to pounce on any loose returns. I didn't see one decent tight net shot from anyone on that court during that game...
Other than that you are a grand player! Hope this helps

Thanks Tactim and anthonyb
I agree that I need to work on my forecourt game, I have always been more comfortable at the back which is probably why I'm not aggressive enough at the net. When I watched the video back again you are definitely right, I am slow moving forwards when my partner is pushed to the back.
One thing I had never noticed until I watched myself on video is how low my racket is a lot of the time! So easily fixed and will hopefully make a big difference, especially at the net. I would recommend to everyone to film yourself playing as there are lots of things you probably never knew you did...
I might try to get a video of a higher standard game at some point to see my weaknesses when playing at full intensity.
Any more comments welcome!

You're right, I was about to comment on the low racket. In the game, you look pretty relaxed, probably because all other players are much weaker in rally situations (the opponents aren't too bad on serve, actually). If you play singles, film yourself playing one match at high intensity - will give you a very good idea of which movements you could work on the most and how quick you really ARE. I always feel a lot quicker than I really am, so taking frequent videos keeps my ego from inflating (that and the rather humiliating losses I get when playing against our 1st and 2nd team players and they play at 100%)

Thanks everyone for your comments
If I can get hold of a decent camera again (this one wasn't mine) I'll try to get a video up of one of my university matches which will hopefully be a better standard.

Badminton season at uni is underway, hoping to record a few more of us playing.
I'm one of the taller ones playing with the Indian guy (if that makes sense).
This was the first time we'd played together as a pairing, so subsequently in the last 2 weeks have improved alot on co-ordination and partnership.
Any comments welcome.
Hoping to upload a fair few more in the coming weeks!

Here's a fun trickshot from a school tournament last weekend. I don't condone this kind of behavior but since I couldn't smash or clear due to an injury, I think it's fair that I can get away with a few points like this

Brushing up on the shuttle for a shot like that is really hard to pull off when you have to generate the pace yourself. It's much easier to do on smash returns to drive it back really flat and fast, but whenever I try to do what you do it ends up in the net when not smashed. Nice shot =).

Aimuk : Exeter Uni looks a lot better venue with the mats!
Sometimes you seem to get in a sideways position when defending/neutral instead of more facing the direction shuttle coming from
Both you and your partner use a lot of flick and wide serves when there doesn't seem to be much pressure on you basic low serve?
In general seems to be a lot of flat drives and you out hit the opponents. I feel if you improved your serves and returns and were not making errors these opponents would not win many points at all.
Return of serve looks to be mostly a flat hit to the back, which works here, but against better opponents won't, would be good to see a harder match.
If you look at for instance 10.09 you look to be stood very far to your right in receive stance? Maybe its the angle of camera? You look like you would have further to move to attack a serve to the T?

Just found this old video of myself playing. Obviously my teammate had not his best day, which resulted in many easy points for me. I am the guy next to the camera wearing the white shirt. Critique welcome!
