Thread: Post videos of yourself playing

Hey bbird, yeah the camera angle is the main reason it looks wonky, having a wide angle lens at the side of the court makes it seem far worse, especially when the centre point is on the right hand side of the court. I'm usually fussy about nets and I made sure it was as straight as I could pull it, but yes, those posts are right and unfortunately that's the most common type in this county. It should probably be upgraded though as that is a badminton specific hall and there's no need for ones that you can stow away easily.
I've finished university so I haven't been playing as I said, but I'd be playing Dorset county matches next year, provided I get in shape- probably not first team though. Don't have times for a ranking now, but I've beaten players in the top 100 in singles when I played tournaments and i'm playing either C1 or B2 in belgium at the end of the month. Think BE gave me an F ranking based on 3 tournaments for this year, it's a new system and i'm one of those exeptions that doesn't play regular circuits. Doubles is far more of a strength for me though, I just haven't had the chance to get a match up yet

Have been watching many videos of you guys playing now and would like to upload one myself! I┤ts a game between me and my doubles partner. We played 6 sets in a row without rest (I believe that this was the fourth) so we were pretty tired. Oh well.
I┤m the guy in yellow.

yeah, i would have guessed 15...
of course you lack some power, but that will come in the next 2 years or so (at least that's my experience from the juniors i know...).
as many junior players, you have some problems concerning consistency. but you have what it needs: good technique, quick footwork. concentrate on playing consistent and less error prone, more power will come by itself.
keep up the good work, you're on a good way i think!

Don┤t expect much, but finally I made a video of the best rallies we played in the training.
As the shirts always change (we have many^^), it is not easy to indentify me^^ I┤m the one who tries a few dives (I wear the sleevless shirt in the first ralley)xDD
Feel free to give me/us some hints for improvement

First things i noticed are that you tend to grip the racket very high and too flat when playing a forehand (and don't pronate) - and that no one uses their left arm very well at all
You also waste a lot of angle by not playing the shuttle at the highest point possible, but very far below that. Try to stretch your arm more when playing a shot, and rotating your body into the shot
Anyway, nice rallies. Good consistency in those
What level do you guys play at?

And finally, I have something to set me apart from the other players again....orange shoes! Really uncomfortable compared to my trusty Victors, but those bit the dust and are considerably more expensive. I'm comfortable enough in them to play matches though - here the very first match of this season. Men's doubles with my new partner. Please ignore my gruesome performance in the first game

Nice Jackie you really seem to be progressing rather quickly all that training looks to be paying off! Your movement is quick and there are less errors than your other games.
Is that the guy you were playing with in the other training matches you posted? I can't really tell, he looks like he's helping you boost your game and the pairing looks very coordinated already, which is nice for a new pairing and looks promising for the future, definitely stick with him. There were some really good defensive rallies and parts where you were converting it into counter attacks sucessfully, moreover you had good awareness of each other.
Only thing I could notice that was going wrong was what I'm quite guilty of in doubles too - defending too side on sometimes- example around 25:30 if you were standing more level with the court you would find it easier to defend with your racquet being infront of you and using a less forehand dominated grip there. I'm sure in the video I post next i'll be doing exactly the same thing though- takes one to know one

No, he's not in any of the training videos. He's (as you can see) the most athletic guy on court and has the best movement and smash....otoh he's played a lot longer than I have, so maybe I'll get there eventually Played in a higher team last season and wanted a more relaxed, enjoyable season now.
And thanks for saying I look quick - I felt okay, but thought I looked awfully slow. I had been sick for ~3 weeks and had only 1 full week of training before this, and although my shots are not impaired, the physicality is not back to 100%. Noticed that again in today's training. Awful stamina, and slow feet (might be the new shoes though, they feel awful when I'm under pressure).

Haha, yep being out of full time training does make you feel sluggish, but you definitely moved quicker the further into the game. He does look experienced but at least you'll pick it up quickly. With regards to those shoes, I personally got advised against them by a friend who ripped through them in 3 months, so I bought another pair of SHB200 that were on sale. Apparently the support around the front is very weak- which might explain your issues.
If you want an example of slow footwork i've just uploaded the last game from the tournament I played in Belgium over the weekend.
Won the B2 doubles and C1 mixed, fluffed up singles in 3rd round. Only managed to start recording at the end of the 2nd set- by which time we had the opposition sussed (they weren't as good as the other pair in the box but were still a challenge at the start). Definitely starting to enjoy badminton after a summer off from playing.
I was also playing with someone i'd never played with before and probably won't again until I go to the Normandy tournament in late March, he was a good player to be with though, despite our contrast in play styles.

really like that doubles-play. you 2 play aggressive, try to control the game (only a few lifts, lots of drops, blocks, smashes) and you play pretty well together. you two are pretty good when you play aggressive and attack. that's what doubles is all about, right?
only a little remark: i saw a few strokes, where you did quite a big movement with your racket. as long as you attack/drive/block, it's all right! but sometimes in defensive play (lifting at the net or smash-defense), your racket head moves quite a long way. you could work on that to make that movement a bit shorter, i.e. working more with the wrist and the underarm, less with the whole arm!
especially when lifting, you can take the shuttle a bit earlier and add some deception, as your opponent will not see the difference between the lift and a block/net shot.
but again: pretty solid doubles game, i definitely like your gameplan and your positive attitude on court!
aimUK: who are you in the vid?

The taller one of the two in black, sorry I didn't say

please, no fishing for compliments concerning the speed of play/footwork as opposed to jackie...
definitely like the way you 2 play together (especially for it being the first time you play together!!). good pace, you really dominate your opponents.
in principle, i like your singles game more than your doubles play. let me explain why:
you have that very "relaxed" style of play, i.e. controlling the pace of the game, taking out the speed where necessary, it all seems quite smooth, especially in the singles vid. that style is better suited for singles than doubles. in my opinion, you're a bit too "well-behaved" in doubles. it starts with the service return for example. watch where your partner stands (at the service line) and how he attacks the service and follows through to the net. maybe you should try to incorporate that in your game, controlling the net and attacking at the net is crucial to playing doubles. a bit more aggression overall would probably put your game to a higher level (you already play very well, don't get me wrong!)
apart from that, you show a very nice understanding of the game, you play a lot of well-placed shots which makes it hard for the opponents to counter-attack. quite clever play! still, i like your singles play better...

Thanks for your comments it was entertaining to read ^_^, I love singles but I'm just not fit enough at the moment, maybe in a few months again i'll have it sorted. I was trying to say i'm impressed by his speed, mine is a ton more relaxed in this one and i'm actually quite jealous of jackie hehe.
As I said in the comment before the video, we knew had pretty much won this match & tournament by the time this game was recorded so there was no urgency in my game, and that may explain the relaxed nature of my play. Unfortunately I don't have any other footage to show- which was a disappointment, I can assure you it was a very different story in the match before hand, but the "camera man" had other priorities.

don't get me wrong, your standard is certainly quite a bit above jackies (no offense against jackie intended, he has improved quite a lot in the last months!!).
