There are some good players. They have been playing badminton for 10 to 20 years. Most of them are old over 50+. So, their strength is not very good but their control is very good. Often I have to face them with a beginner to intermediate level player. Usuall, the old advanced level player (let's call them Oldhands ^^) take mixed formation with a beginner level player. And I take double formation. Sometimes, rotation problems happen. That irritates me but not much. If a front player is not so good then I try to netplay but If they are good then We have to deal with these Oldhands. Oldhans' smash return is very good and drop is also very good. When I smash with a good chance I have 50% of success rate. But most of them they return it to far corner of the either side where it is not easy to smash. Even if I smash it Shuttle will loose angle and speed in the end. I think I will put some efforts to practice smash and drop to sideline. Is there a better way to deal with these Oldhands? any comments?
