Question: How to hit a drop shot

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLoOjGLzP2Q

Answer: In order to hit a  proper drop shot, first you need to be in the ready position and the key is good foot work.  After you get into position to hit the birdie you need to have your racquet faced towards the corner you are positioned in.  In example if you have your right leg in front then postion your racqeut to the right corner, if you have your left leg in front then position your racquet to the left corner.  Once you are in position you need to bring your arm shoulder level.  This allows you to have control over the birdie and you can hit the drop shot.  You will hit the birdie at shoulder height but stop through your motion when you swing.  You don't swing all teh way through in your follow through.  You will hit a drop shot when the birdie is high enough in the air for you do execute it properly.  If everything goes well the birdie should land just over the net to where your opponent can't get it or has a tough time doing so.  You need to use as little wrist as possible and use more of your arm to hit the shot.  Once you have executed the shot you need to get back into the ready position and play the next shot.

Question: How do I hit an overhead clear shot in badminton?

URL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKKTUR5eSgc

Answer: If the birdy is coming deep to you in the back of the court this is a good time to use this return. You have to stand in the ready position and make sure you are behind the birdy. You will hold the racket with the forhand grip with the racket above your head. Make sure your arm holding the racket is up above your head, but slightly bent as you prepare for the return. Then you will bend your arm with the racket backward to get momentum for the return. Then, when the birdy is at the perfect spot above you snap your wrist forward and make contact with the birdy. Make sure to follow through with your racket. If this return is done correcty, the birdy should be shot high and deep to the other side.

Question: How do you serve in badminton?

URL Link to video: http://www.ehow.com/video_5113555_badminton-serving-techniques.html

Answer:   Position yourself so your side is to the net.  Your non-dominant side is closest to the net.

Hold the shuttle (non dominant hand) just below shoulder height. Your dominant arm extended back (holding racket) with weight on the back foot. Drop shuttle. Shift weight forward, and swing racket downward and forward. Keep your wrist in a cocked position until the shuttle is contacted. Continue to move your body forward. Racket should contact the shuttle at a low level below knee. Follow-through with a strong wrist snap upon contact. Quickly assume a ready position to return the shot from your opponent.

Question: How to hit a regular smash shot?

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4ldi3h-KWs  First 1 Minute 15 Seconds

Answer: Holding the racket in your dominant hand, turn your body sideways, so you are able to step into the shot.  Extend your arm as high above your head as you can and slightly in front of your body.  Hold your non-dominant hand up as well and use it to guide your stroke.  Snap your wrist when your arm is fully extended to concentrate the power.  The momentum will carry your stroke through, but make sure not to stop and to follow through completely in order to achieve maximum power and accuracy.

Question: How to hit a block shot?

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lm8mInRGx9g

Answer: Use the block shot when you are in the forward half of your court. Hold your racquet up in your ready position, about head high. Keep the racquet face open and square to the net. Watch the shuttle carefully, as your opponent returns a shot. Move your racquet head quickly into the path of the shuttle.

Block the shuttle without swinging the racquet at all. If you are very close to the net, or your opponent's return is high enough, block the shuttle with a closed racquet face to drive it down into your opponent's court.

Question: How to hit a high, deep serve in badminton

URL Link to video: http://www.ehow.com/video_4951423_hit-high-deep-serve-badminton.html

Answer:     A high, deep serve in badminton is known as a deep underhand serve. This serve is most commonly done in singles. Start this serve by standing about two feet or so behind the service line. As for every serve, start with your weight on your back leg. After you make contact with shuttle, follow through so your hand finishes up high and your weight shifts from your back leg to your front leg (make sure you do not step into the serve or that you do not drag your feet because these are faults). So, one serves a high deep serve in badminton by swinging the racket with little wrist, just the arm. Impact happens here and you finish the shot by wrapping your arm over your head.

Question:  How to Hit an Overhead Drop Shot?

URL Link to video: http://www.ehow.com/video_4951421_hit-overhead-drop-shot-badminton.html

Answer:  Like every overhead shot, it starts from the ready position.  One needs to go from the ready position to the back of the court.  Side-stepping in the direction one is going, pushing off on the front leg, and reaching the back of the court on your racket leg.  The motion is the same as for any other overhead shot; however, the force at impact is less so that the birdie will just pass over the net.  The start of the shot should be the same in order to not give your opponents any hint that one is going to hit a drop shot.  Then, go back to the ready position.

Question: What is the best position for you and your teammate to stand when playing doubles?

URL Link to video: http://www.ehow.com/video_4951430_play-doubles-badminton.html

Answer: As the video shows us, depending on what you and your partner are looking to do in the game is the position you should stand in. If you stand side by side this is known as the 'defensive mode' and you are expecting an attack from your opponents.  You and your partner will know the areas you are to get and which ones you are to let him/her get.  The weak spots for this stance are the spaces in front and behind you and your partner.  The other position mentioned in the video was that of the 'attack position'  which is when you and your partner stand front to back.  This is used when you are trying to get the birdy in the opponent's weak spot.  In the attack position the weak spots are the corners on the outside of you and your partner.

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAwKKcG48H4

Answer:

Stand with your body turned somewhat sideways-on to the net, with your left foot in front and pointing forwards. Your right foot should be farther back and (comfortably) turned out to the side.Your weight should be mostly on your back foot.Hold your badminton racket with a relaxed basic grip. A short grip will be better control.Hold the shuttlecock with all your fingers gently cradled around it.You must drop the shuttlecock into the path of the racket.

Question: How do you hit a drop shot?

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhUDalRURz8

Answer: To hit a drop shot in badminton is not that hard if you get familiar with your racket. First as always get in your ready postition, as the ball is heading over the net shuffle to the appropriate spot and be in ready position. Have you racket up in the air with you oppoistie hand tracking the birdie, You hand positions should some what resemble the Nike swoosh sign. Hit the birdie at the approriate time as you would with anyother shot but when you contact the birdie do not follow through. This will give your opponite the idea that you are hitting a regular shot when the birdie will drop right in front of them hopefully not being able to return.

Question:  How do you return a serve in badminton?

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzT6zwc-SZo

Answer: Before returning a serve in badminton, make sure your weight is equally distributed between your right and left leg.  Your front foot should be flat on the ground while your back foot is slightly inclined.  You want to be able to move forward or backward very rapidly in order to catch the serve of your opponent.  Do not stand too close to the serving line or too far back.  If you are in this position, you will be ready for any kind of short or long serve.

Question: How does one return a smash in badminton?

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tmMHx4YITgs

Answer: When returning a smash the stance is the most important. It is normally easier to be prepared in a backhand stance as this allows you to be faster and reach more area.  It is important to bend the knees and be prepared to use reflexes and return the birdie either with a clear or a drop shot in order to keep your opponent from getting another setup for a slam. The wrist is the main source of power on the smash return.

Question: How to make the forehand net kill

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6uj7UoR7YJ8&feature=related

Answer: Net kill is a shot played when your opponent has played a loose shot over the net, providing an opening to strike the shuttle down from the net area. The basic preparation and the movement for the net kill is the same as for the net shot. The only difference is that you need to hold the racket head high enough to take the shuttle above the net level. The key is to be quick to the net. As this shot is played with a tap action near the net, there is a risk with litle or no racket arm movement. Once you make contact with the shuttle, let your racket rebound back to ensure no follow through.

Question: What are the rules for serving in badminton?

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzT6zwo-SZo

Answer: Before you start to serve, you have to get into postion. Your knees should be slightly bent and the racket should be out in front of you.  Your thumb should be located along the handle of the racket.  When serving the racket should always be below your waiste and you should always sart a serve underhanded. To determine the starter of the game you flip a coin or hit the birdie in the air and whoever it points to, they get to serve first. You serve from the right court when the score is even and you serve from the left when the score is odd.  You serve diagnolly across the court to the opposite side. Make sure the birdie lands within the boundry lines.

Question: How do you hit a backhand serve in badminton?

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJUyq7y59ZA

Answer: To hit a backhand serve in badminton, step up close to the serve line with one foot slightly in front of the other and your weight on your front foot. However, do not step on the line as this will be a foul and your oppenent will score a point.  With the birdie in your left hand and the racket in the backhand position, flick your wrist forward toward your oppenent's square and follow through with your racket high.  As with any serve, the racket head must make contact with the birdie below the waist and must be facing a downward angle.

Question: How to Keep Score in Badminton

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p42wxuN8MZE&feature=PlayList&p=083F24C8A8499A2D&index=7

Answer: Rally scoring in badminton is the best of two-out-of-three games of 21 points each. In each game you must score at least 2 points more opponent to win the set. So if the score is 20-20, the one who scores 22 win. It keeps going if two sides are tied. However, the one who scores 30 first win

Question:  What is the basic stance in Badminton?

URL Link to video: http://www.answerbag.com/video/video_basic-stance-badminton/0755a5a9-3dd7-8d60-28d4-d5c2cfdcc83f

Answer: Your shoulder needs to be at level to your legs to the ground. Your racket needs to be at eye level. Knees should be bent a little bit, and your legs should not be to close together or to far from your shoulder level. Keep in mind, wherever your strong hand is—like for me my right hand is my strong hand—my right foot would go over there. It is also important to note that it is important to keep an eye on the birdie and position the body accordingly around the court in order to best hit the birdie. Remember to always be in a ready position and not just stand in one place. Moving around the court and making your opponent move is very important.

Question: What is the best way to deal with a shot close to the net?

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PsiWxdTgXaM&feature=related

Answer: The first step in being ready for a shot close to the net is to make sure that you’re always getting back near the middle after every shot. With your legs bent sanding ready in the middle of the court is the best way to be when waiting for a return shot. Once you see that a shot will be short, take a few steps in the direction of the shot and lunge for the hit. Hit the birdie hard and at an sharp upward angle to clear the net but still hit it over the head of your opponent.

Question: How to Hit a flick serve in badminton?

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RrZtNPBG2Mw

Answer: Stand close to the service line, with your racquet foot forward and your feet about shoulder width apart. Hold the shuttle several inches below your waist, pinching the feathers between your thumb and forefinger. Hold the elbow of your racquet arm up at shoulder level, with your racquet head down almost against your opposite thigh, behind the shuttle. Drop the shuttle. Flick your wrist and push forward with your forearm harder than you would on a normal backhand serve, striking the shuttle below your waist with an open racket face.
