ok here is my dilemna. I live in a small city in Ontario, Canada. Badminton is not a huge deal here. Schools only have gym teachers coaching and none of them have any expertiece in badminton. I am a senior at our school and have played badminton throughout my highschool career. For the past two years I have coached the highschool junior team becuase of a lack of knowledge of the game from our other coaches. Practices consist of simply of scrimmage games. There are NO drills. This year I have decided to implement drills to improve the level of play. I personally made it to my provinical tournament, OFSAA last year in mixed doubles. My partner has graduated and I need to train a new partner. My old partner had never played before and I had to teach her from scratch. I personally am the citys best highschool player by far however have struggled playing singles at my regional tournament and thus turned to mixed. I am slightly overweight and not in the best of shape so unless that changes I may be stuck playing mixed. I use a Nanospeed8000 3U and love the racket. I have what I consider a strong smash and good backcourt drops. I am more a power player than finesse. My question is what kind of drills can I do to improve my mixed play as well as singles. I am well aware of using the mixed holes for doubles but still dotn know any drills to incorporate this shot as well as the other neccesary shots. Any advice would be much apprecaited.
