As said before, your net plays are too safe also.

Yes I am on the far side I said that in the description above the video. To be honest smashing from the back I am not a very powerful player so my attack would screw me over more than it would help me. That is why I had to play around with slices and drops. My drops could be way tighter I agree. I did have a few mesa ups at the net but after net killing him twice and as well in the 1st game he didn't seem keen on playing the net. And drew I am wearing just the normal SHB 86ex's

Here is me playing I'm on the far side in the orange Li-ning Shirt
I didn't play my best. The hall is fast and the shuttle in this game was fast as well, so both, my opponent and I made several mistake when we were clearing and high serves.
Also to add, I'm sorry about the video quality, I have no idea why it is flicking, it maybe because of the lighting in the hall. I'm not sure. This was record at 23 fps.
The player on the far side is Toby Penty, he was coaching someone at the time.

Technically, I notice mainly footwork - lack of scissor and split steps. Recovery is very lacking. Addressing shuttle on overheads is not correct form, especially when doing forehand in backhand side (shuttle is too far back, and body is too square a lot of the time 6:48).
Strategy/tactics - definitely far too many pushes/lifts when net shots would be better.

Two quick things: first, you grip way too high. In singles, you generally should grip way at the bottom, the only possible exceptions being when you play a netshot or defend.
Second, your hitting action for everything below net height is way to big. It should be a short, sharp motion, but you don't seem to tighten the grip and rather play those shots with pronation/supination, which should be avoided whenever possible (talking about netplay, defense and drives taken in front of your body). The longer you can hold the shuttle/the shot, the longer you fix your opponent in court, so making the motion shorter and sharper is an important aspect, especially in singles.

In training, you should try and split your time a little - play very concentrated and clean most of the time, but take some time every session to play just the way you want as well. That way, it doesn't feel like work, but is still effective. I wasted quite a bit of time playing with lower standard players whom I could deceive easily, but playing against stronger opponents that was fairly useless and I had to catch up quite a bit on basics that I could've learned much earlier.
Do you have training with a coach or do you play more recreationally? If you can, get a coach or advanced player to oversee your footwork training (you should do some drills every session). It's hard to believe how much clean, effective footwork does for your game

I think after the club tournament has finished, I think I will do a few drills and etc to improve my footwork. During this game I was tired that is why I didn't put in a lot of effort and that's why my footwork was really poor. Hopefully that next time I record a video I wouldn't be tired and my footwork would slightly be better.

I have another fun video for you guys. I think I had better stick to coaching:
Oh nice flick! *brain fart* Damn I'm out of position... dive!
*get up* ...where the @#$! is my racket?! Why isn't it in my hand?
*gropes for racket* Where did it go? I better go find my racket.
Partner: "COME ON!"
Huh? Where's the bird? *look up* Oh too late to change grip, swing!
*opponent returns shot* Ok I'm gonna go lift really high and give us time.. why is my partner moving too? Crap.

It is good that you returned the shot with interest!
