Proper Footwork Drills
During off court, are there any useful practices to improve foot steps, for that matter to eliminate wrong ways of moving the steps?

hey adam, seeing as how you are new, welcome
but just to point out, you should try using the search button. there you will find more on footwork then you have ever imagined. no i'm not joking. try it now, we're trying to cut down on repeated posts, and its your first time so remember BF rule number one...
!Use the Search Luke!

Hi, can anybody help.When i play singles,a lot of the time i find it really difficult to time my split step with my opponents hit ,which as you can imagine throws my game out .But sometimes i accidently get it right which makes a massive difference to all aspects of my game, i tend to flow around the court everything becomes easier . Is there without getting too in depth a method or drill to enable me to get the correct timing for my split step e,g do i do a split step before,when,or after my opponent strikes the shuttle please help!

Here's a simple drill that will help you learn the timing of the split step, and also improve your footwork generally; it's called "corners work":
Your partner stands in one corner of the court, and you must hit the shuttle back to him. He should play loose netshots and high lifts, so that you have enough time to reach them. He should, however, be deceptive if possible, to force you to use good footwork and avoid relying on anticipation.

Thanks,Gollom i will give it a try. Is there a specific time when one should use the split step in relation to your opponent hitting the shuttle. I have been told to use it just after your opponent strikes the shuttle is this correct
