    Another ambidextrous. Cool!
    You can choose both, I guess. Then again, your votes would just cancel each other out.

    So you can have the option of not voting at all.

    I don't want to take away from your ambidextrous skills, but isn't it pretty useless in badminton?
    I mean that in the nicest way possible.

    It is, and I feel like focusing on one hand. However, I have no idea whether power or control is more important.

    This is what I thought at first. But after playing with 88raymond, I found out that it could also be efficient. When I first played with him, I kept on directing the shuttle towards his backhand. But then, after several trials, I got confused because he doesn't seem to have a backhand. Later did I realize that he doesn't have any. He's mainly left handed but he can switch the racket to his right quickly and smash just as strong. It's really unbelievable because he could also adjust his footwork instantaneously. It's pretty amazing.

    Hm... I guess that means I should still attempt to use both. Do you mean something like if I have a weak backhand clear, I should play it as a forehand? The problem is, would that take too long?

    One of my coaches can use both hands whilst playing badminton , and clear with both hands , but he said that it takes too long switching

    The switch should be quick. Mainly, 88raymond could only switch to his right (he's dominantly left handed) during clears from the opponent to his backhand side (i.e, his right side). But if it's a fast drive, a good attacking clear, a tight drop shot, or a body shot smash, he couldn't switch the racket. (This is usually the tactic I use against him .) His switching is just a backup ... sort of a resort so as not to use his overhead backhand.

    eh.. looks like dere r ambidextrous players like me around as well
    I m mainly right handed but sumtimes switch 2 my left hand for certain shots

    my handedness in life:
    50% left, 50% right(writing, drawing)

    and btw, if you hold your racquet in front of you with 1 hand n the other hand closeby, its possible to quickly switch at will
    However, my left hand has got a small skin growth which is hampering my lefty moves.. gonna get it removed this yr

    I'm very right-handed in everything.

    I've tried playing badminton left-handed before, and I find that the coordination is almost impossible (especially footwork...)
