    hahaha, thanks for the comment
    most probably because I had a lot more energy :P

    Game three match two, when you switched sides , and the set has won, why did you serve on the left side instead of the right side? :0

    Not bad. Your friend was attacking your backhand corner a lot... probably because he knew that's one of your weakness, as your reply is always a clear to the centre. You'll need some more variations on this, like a straight or cross drop.

    Drew,

    You have improved


    Footwork and balance are ever ongoing things to keep practising. Good habits are important. First thing I noticed is when the shuttle is high, you are very slow to lift your racquet arm up and turn your body to the side.

    At this level of play you won't notice the benefit but as you move up to playing better players, you will notice it gets harder to strike the shuttle properly with your present speed of preparation.

    Keep practising good, basic techniques, and you have the potential to take your improvement a lot further.

    Just a catch up video on improvement.
    Ps please ignore my female friend talking sorry. She recorded for me (:
    Pros: smash is getting faster steeper

    And you guys won't believe this but finally established proper grip (""": smashing is amazingly fun

    Technique is getting better (:

    Drop shots are getting tighter and net kills are way better then before

    Cons: swing to fast and miss time the birdy

    Very lazy at times oh my gosh ))):

    Split step is missing quite often need to incorporate it more

    Racquet is not always up.

    And anymore criticism would be appreciated thank you. Third video (:
    Exert,

    A) keep both feet on the ground when you serve otherwise, your serve will be illegal

    B) keep trying to hit the shuttle to the back of the court when clearing.

    is this on either side? Forward and backhand that I'm slow to raise my arm up?
    So practicing on my preparation before hitting the shot??
    hahaha thanks I hope so.
    This week I've been able to play against people above my standard. I went to a Mixed session at Wimbledon

    The problem occurs on any overhead forehand side.

    On the backhand overhead, dont worry about it - just play more round the heads

    Can I add something? When you're at the back of the court, your arm goes to an 'L' shape and I think this is a bad form. Hit the shuttle higher/earlier when it's over your head and while doing so, swing your whole arm, your elbow pointing to the direction of the opponent's court then snap your wrist. It looks painful to me the way you hit the shuttle, and it's probably inefficient because you're using more energy and not transferring much of it to the shuttle. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Which side do you mean?? back hand side? Over heads??
    I generally use my whole arm, it might not be shown in the video.
    I'm a bit confused, when you said "your elbow pointing to the direction of the opponent's court then snap your twist"

    When you do overhead. You do an L shape then u hit the shuttle. It goes like this.. Your arm up > forward motion, your elbow pointing to the opponent's court side/forward > snap your wrist to hit the shuttle. All should be in one connected fluid motion. I hope i make sense lol

    I think his point is that you often play your overheads with a bent arm.
    His explanation seems to adress that - I guess he's trying to say that during the swing, at one point your elbow should point in the opponent's direction with your forearm pointing away from him. Then you should snap your forearm upwards and simultaneously pronate (=snap your wrist?). Look at one of the many FHF-slowmos to illustrate - his arm is always extended very far when he hits the shuttle, and you can see the different stages of the stroke beautifully. Not everyone has that shoulder mobility though
