Hi. I am a high school student, and I started to play badminton last year in the spring. I guess you could consider me as a beginner. The season is coming up soon, and I have realized that I am not improving. I go to bintang (badminton gym near my house) at least once a week, and I play "singles" with my friend (even though I'm not looking into playing in that category. For the entire duration of my season last year, I played only mix doubles and girls doubles. Mix doubles is different in my high school-- for it's not like actual doubles at all. Instead, the girls stay in the front the whole time and the guys stay in the back. And so, I feel as if I am really weak. I cannot clear very far (a few steps from the line you serve on), my lifts have the same problem, and I am unable to kill/smash. I believe that the problem is my wrist strength (my coach has told me that my form is fine), but could there be any other factors? I've been trying to hit up to the ceiling (people have said it helps with building wrist strength) and just rotating it. Please help me!
