    Terms used when we talk about Badminton Techniques and Training (Strokes/Shots)

    Greetings,

    I was reading and replying in this thread, found located at:
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/for...o-Improve-Drop-Shots-When-and-how-to-use-them

    The intention of this thread to talk about the terminology used in different countries and/or used by different coaches.

    Let us start by identifying the different terms used. And we shall start with this simple one, although some may not know it is a special term used;

    * Service = The first stroke or shot played in a rally.

    Hope that our various BCers can continue to add in more terms, commonly used in our own special corners of the world. :):):)

    The Dribble

    .
    Thanks keith.roche for adding in more terms for us. :):):)

    So, I gather that a Dribble is a soft controlled shot played from Fore Court to Fore Court.

    The Drive

    .
    OK, let's talk about Drives.

    There are many different drive strokes/shots used at Badminton.

    But a drive implies a hard and fast hitting shot that is intended to pass past our opponent's racket before he/she is ready/prepared to intercept the shuttlecock's path.

    Here are some Drives, namely;
    * Drive Service = A Service that is hit hard and fast, hoping to pass past a receiver before he/she is ready to intercept it
    * Drive Return of Smash = In Doubles, a Drive Return of Smash is played/hit fast, to pass past the front player to the back player
    * Drive from side line = A shot played horizontally along the side line to skim just over the net height, hit hard and fast
    * etc, etc, ......

    Please allow me (and other BCers) to have more time to post more info about other different Drives.

    What do you call defensive type drop shots? The ones taken below net height from the baseline to around mid-court and lands on opponent's forecourt?

    Oh, and please add 'push'. I'm unable to define it properly.
