Type of serve?
i just wondered, what serve do people prefer to use??
i originally used a backhand serve all the time but for the last year ive been using a forehand serve, and to greater effect.
Using this serve, i stand at least halfway back in the box and by the time i make contact with the shuttle its roughly level with my knees or slightly lower.
this lets me hit it slightly harder but i find it alot easier to keep the serve close to the top of the net and then close to the service line to cause confusion in the reciever.

For singles, I mix it up. From while playing with the new scoring system, I play from points 0-15 in the first set with just low serve back hand serves. I mix it up with some high flick and drive serves until that set is over. The next set is my fore hand set and if a third set continues, I mix it up between the 6.
However, in doubles, I always use the back hand serves. Mixing the drives, low and the flick serves. Never forehand.
