HOW to improve tactics (planning/coaching)? Really appreciate it.
So I didn't know how to word this enough to search it on badmintoncentral so bear with me here, people !
So by tactics, I think what I mean is what is best to do against the opponent.. what will earn you points, what is their weaknesses and strengths and what to do when pressure is on?
Yea, I know this might seem silly to some but... to me... competitive badminton = 2 -3 years now, competitive alternate sport (table tennis) = 4 years... my tactical mindset fails quite epicly .. a shame really since I've had so much time/many years to practice..
Why have I finally decided to take the initiative? Well, playing doubles.. I never really know what to tell my partner and more often than not.. I'm usually the dominant player in the doubles so I really want to be able to improve my doubles as a whole AND know what to say to my partner so we both know what to do and give him some confidence ..
so here's the question: What can I do to improve my tactical planning? What should I do to be a better coach for my friends during their matches?
Im open to anything

Watch some of the top world ranked MD matches.
Attack always. Pick on the weaker of the 2 opponent.
Aim down the middle of the 2, their backhand court, their racket hip and shoulder, drive flat at their heads, push to mid alleys.
Always be constructive with comments to partners. Never put down or accuse.

but here is a joke
please don't take it serious, its a joke only
if i were to get my player to play with you, i will get the 6 footers
the good one will pretend to be lousy
while the lousy one will pretend to be good and give instructions
and train them defense all year
so good they never miss anything near their backhand, in the middle of the court,
racket hip and shoulder.
they will then wait for your head drives and push to the mid alleys
and give you big big bang

tactic used also depends on the standard of the players.
anyway, the most important thing before a tactic is the skill level.
if skill level is low so will be your tactical plan
i can give you an example of say, in doubles
when you are receiving a serve,
say, you make a quick push deep to the backhand corner
and you remain near the front court waiting for any loose return.
while doing that your partner must stay behind you for any shots that passes you.
say, you missed the straight drive from your opponent
and your partner drives back hard but to the center forcing a weak return
and you are still somewhere in the front area you should be able to make a kill.
this will only work if you can react fast in the service return (good agility)
and your push to the backhand corner is superb (skill 1)
while your partner has a good drive (skill 2)
say, if skill 1 is good but skill 2 is floating, imagine the havoc
tactical plans in doubles are formed together by both partners,
that is, work out several plans together and make them into drills
watching video as suggested by visor helps a lot.

WHOA. Thanks heaps guys ^_^!!
Recently i was in Taiwan.. watching the Victor SSF 2010 and yea... the mens doubles, whoa.. one would serve and the other would jus netroll/cut it off at the net and some of the time (since the opponent can net roll back), the opponent would lift, giving the receiver the advantage.
Very well said that skill level is important.. because I don't think I can do any of those shots for now .
Yea.. thanks heaps. Shall lift less now (I used to lift heaps in doubles... and my D was good msot of the time, but my partner's D wasn't most of the time... lost a bit too many points there.)
YOur advice will help me win more points ^_^~!
