    Terms used when we talk about Badminton Techniques and Training (Strokes/Shots)

    Greetings,

    I was reading and replying in this thread, found located at:
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ow-to-use-them

    Quote Originally Posted by chris-ccc View Post

    Let me state some which I use in my coaching session (from Melbourne, Australia).

    But before we talk about strokes and shots, we also need to have a clearer terminology on these 2 items.

    For me, I use this terminology, namely;
    * Stroke = How a player executes a shot. It relates to our stroke production. It describes our body action.
    * Shot = How the shuttlecock travels. It describes the trajectory of the path taken by the shuttlecock.

    Now, we need to name 3 areas of the court, namely;
    * Fore Court = The area between the service line and the net
    * Back Tram Lines = The area between the last 2 lines at the back of the court
    * Mid Court = The area between the Fore Court and the Back Tram Lines

    OK, now we shall talk about the name of the various shots (again to remind our readers that this is only my terminology).
    * Dropshot = An overhead shot played to land in my opponent's Fore Court
    * Netplay = A shot played at about net height (at my Fore Court) to land in my opponent Fore Court
    * Clear = An overhead shot played/hit high to land in my opponent's Back Tram Lines
    * Lift = An underarm shot played/hit high to land in my opponent's Back Tram Lines
    The intention of this thread to talk about the terminology used in different countries and/or used by different coaches.

    Let us start by identifying the different terms used. And we shall start with this simple one, although some may not know it is a special term used;

    * Service = The first stroke or shot played in a rally.

    Hope that our various BCers can continue to add in more terms, commonly used in our own special corners of the world.

    Thanks keith.roche for adding in more terms for us.

    So, I gather that a Dribble is a soft controlled shot played from Fore Court to Fore Court.

    * Spinning Netplay = A shot played near the net to our opponent's Fore Court, creating the shuttlecock to spin (rotating) over the net

    Thumbs up Terms used: Shots and/or Strokes

    .
    I shall not be so dominating in this thread; but to allow our BCers to define and/or add in more definitions of shots/strokes.

    I shall await for more BCers to enter into this discussion, regarding terms used: Shots and/or Strokes.

    OK, let's talk about Drives.

    There are many different drive strokes/shots used at Badminton.

    But a drive implies a hard and fast hitting shot that is intended to pass past our opponent's racket before he/she is ready/prepared to intercept the shuttlecock's path.

    Here are some Drives, namely;
    * Drive Service = A Service that is hit hard and fast, hoping to pass past a receiver before he/she is ready to intercept it
    * Drive Return of Smash = In Doubles, a Drive Return of Smash is played/hit fast, to pass past the front player to the back player
    * Drive from side line = A shot played horizontally along the side line to skim just over the net height, hit hard and fast
    * etc, etc, ......

    Please allow me (and other BCers) to have more time to post more info about other different Drives.
