    I am a right hander. Should outlaw those left handers :P They always ruin my coaching sessions by having to be different hehe. But seriously my favourite doubles partner was a lefty we made a good combo together. Very hard to play against a team like that.


    My first coach was comfortable playing with either hand. Was fun when u tried to attack his backhand and see him change hands mid rally so he was always on his forehand damn cheater.

    Question hmm... right or left

    Hello fellow string abusers!

    I play with my right... eventhough I'm left handed. When I started to play badminton in the backyard I used to switch from left to right and vice versa to cover both sides
    After having joined a club I saw everyone else playing with their right so I picked up the racket with my right too. Kinda weird is it not? hehe

    Yeah ... but are you more comfortable < is it more easier > playing with right hand ?

    Yes I am and if me and my mates were to play with the 'wrong' hand then I beat them every time (unlike other times... )

    I am stronger on the right side/arm though so no point in changing back...
    Or... actually left handers are quite tricky to play against(assuming you play w right)... at least I find it hard

    I find it hard too, often it takes me 10 points or so before I'm adjusted to it I keep giving them great forehand smashing opportunities

    ...being a lefty...it's true that i get a lot of forehand smashing opportunities which is sometimes nice...but one thing that i noticed about being left-handed that is both good and bad for a lefty playing with a righty is that they have the back and forehands on the same side. i find that this is sometimes a bit annoying because if the right-handed opponent clears to my forehand by accident...i have to hit it all the way cross court to attack their backhand. but if we were both using the same hand...you could just hit it straight to attack their backhand. it's like playing a mirror image...so if i try to attack them...i might get the same back if they hit it straight from their backhand to my backhand. but i've learned and tried to be careful about that if i can...just a thought and something i notice when i play with friends who know bout me being lefty...

    Recently there was a TV science documentary about differences of being left-handed and right-handed. I recall that the documentary did say that the lefty's hand is controlled by the right side of the brain, and that the right side of the brain is a few thousands of a second faster than the left side of the brain. The presenter also said that lefties are better at sports than righties, mainly because of the faster response of the brain on the right side. Interesting. Maybe the BAM should establish another criteria, say a proportionally higher percentage of lefties, to be taken in, or that being a lefty can override a lack of height.

    yes, I read about thi some where before, they use example of (yangyang?, zhao jianhua?, are they lefties?.. I remmeber they are)

    They said, leftie's percentage among players are low, but why you can see there are a lot of leftie tops, the percentage of the leftie tops are far higher than their percentage among those who paly

    Faster reaction time for lefties ... hmm ... since badminton is such a fast sport , I'd take it that faster reaction time is a pretty big advantage ?
