Question: How do i smash a birdie against my oppenent in a game for an easy point or advantage?

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QlW8_PdYbw

Answer: The "jump slash" is the most effective way to smash an oppenent, it's been clocked at sppeds exceeding 200 mph in its usage. To do this, first make sure your feet are aligned parallel to the back line with a wide stance. Next, bring back your racket with a loose grip and its strings facing downwards. Next, Elevate the non racket hand up for balance. Make sure when setting up, that your elbows and shoulders are aligned.  Now plant your back foot for your power and release into your shot hitting the birdie with your body in a straight posture position.Make sure you aim to the center of your oppenents court, preferably at their feet.  When you have hit your shot, come back down in a wide stance prepared for a return by your oppenent if it occurs.

Check spelling

Good question

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

URL Link to video:  YouTube plugin error

Answer: Shoulders straight, right foot forward (if right handed), thumb towards body, racket pointed near ground, mainly using your wrist to hit the birdie. 

This is a question based on skill, add a focus on tactics...e.g.  when do you use a backhand flick serve? When is it most appropriate?

Question: why are fast low shots more affective than slow high shots?

URL Link to video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZ2k-tsX5KE

Answer: In competitive Badminton it is advantageous to hit the birdie as fast and as low as possible while still clearing the net.  This is because the faster and lower the shot, the less time the opponent will have to react.  Also, another benefit to this fast low style of playing is that the lower shots will force the other player to hit the birdie at a greater angle in order to clear the net which will in turn set you up for a slam.  While low fast shots are most effective there is still a place for slow high shots; these allow you to draw the opponent to the back of the court.  In the attachment the players are in a constant battle for this kind of set up. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Question: What is a good defensive tactic?  Where should you stand in singles?

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKVPgwdTnS0

Answer:  Being able to cover as much ground as possible is a good tactic in defense.  In singles you should always return to the center of the court to cover as much ground as possible. Also In singles you should hit the birdie long and high to open up the front court.   You and your partner should be able to switch from the side-side (defensive formation) to front and back (attacking formation) when playing so you both can cover as much ground as possible in a doubles game.

Good question. Add: Where should you stand in singles?

Question: How do I make a backhand cross court deception? 

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6O8AD-D1obQ

Answer: There are two different methods to make a backhand cross court deception. The first method, which is simpler, involves two steps – (1) show your opponent that you will be making a straight net shot, and (2) suddenly change the direction of your racket to make the cross court shot. The second method, which is more effective, involves three steps – (1) show your opponent that you will be making a straight net shot, then (2) pretend that you have changed your mind and you want to lift the birdie instead (thus, you need to lower your racket), and finally (3) very quickly change the direction of your racket to make the cross court shot. This backhand cross court deception is especially useful in singles to earn points, as deceptions like this will definitely catch your opponent off guard.

Great question, add: why should I use one? or What is the purpose of using this technique?

Question: What is the best way to play doubles

URL Link to video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gcwb3vqRL4

Answer: all types of doubles play, teamwork is the key in forming a formidable partnership. Although an ideal player will be skillful in all areas of the court, most will either show greater flair around the net or be more effective with overhead shots.Talk to your partner. Is there a leader in the partnership

This is too broad, try to ask more specific questions.

Question: How do I hit a flick serve and fool my opponent into thinking it is a backhand serve?

URL Link to video: http://www.ehow.com/video_4951417_hit-flick-serve-badminton.html

Answer: The grip for the racket and the position of your body is identicle to the one used for the backhand serve (this is why it tricks your opponent into thinking it is a backhand serve).  The goal is to not show your opponent what type of serve you are going to do prior to the stroke.  Once you are in position to serve, instead of doing a regular backhand stroke you are going to do a power stroke (use more power than you normally would when doing a backhand) to flick the shuttle at the back of the net.  You want to do this fast backhand strike of the shuttle in order to have the shuttle fall at the back of the doubles service line at the back of the court.  By doing all of this you should be able to trick your opponent and gain a point.

Question:What is the proper way to receive and rally a drop shot from your opponent?

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

 Answer:  The main key to returning a good drop shot is to anticipate the shot before you are too much out of position to rally the shot.  Footwork also plays an important part in the return.  From the ready position , which is raquet in front hands and legs straight, you want to step directly into the direction of the birdie with your right foot.  Your raquet should go straight forward, and should never go below eye level when you make contact.

Good question

Question: How do you hit a forehand net lift?

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

Answer: A forehand net lift is when the birdie is hit from your fore court into your opponents rear court. Start with a relaxed forehand grip and lunge toward the birdie and push the racket forward creating a large angel at the elbow and a small angle at the bent wrist, hit through the birdie allowing gravity to guide it, and make sure you shuffle back in recovery to get back into at returning stance. Net lifts are best to use when your opponent is playing close to their net so that you can force them to scramble to the rear of their court to try and hit the birdie. This would effectively throw the opponent "off their game" and result in a point for you!

Good question but focused on skill.... add why or when in a game you should use a forehand net lift

Question: What is a good shot to use when trying to decieve your opponent?

URL Link to video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QlW8_PdYbw

Answer:An Around the head smash. This is actually a forehand overhead badminton smash played at the non-racket side of the body. You should try to use it whenever play permits a forehand stroke because a forehand stroke is always more powerful than a backhand stroke. To perform this technique. Stand squarely at the net. Bend your upper body sideways to your non-racket side as your arms come through. Shift your weight to your non-racket leg. Bend your elbow and bring the racket behind your head. As you swing forward, your forearm will brush the top of your head before straightening. Transfer your body weight rapidly as your non-racket leg pushes your body back to your base position. An important thing to note here is that whether you are playing a badminton smash, a drop shot or a clear, your wrist plays a key part in creating deception.

Question: Is it possible to use choreographed "plays" during doubles?

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-mI3iCRp_M

Answer: It is somewhat possible to use choreographed plays during doubles. Such choreographed plays include: standing in a line (side to side) when in a defensive position, to switching to a front and back position when anticipating attack. In knowing such strategies it is as if the doubles team has a sort of choreographed play in every situation on the court.

Name of student: Tyler Copeland

Question: What is the best formation for doubles play?

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-mI3iCRp_M

Answer: When on the defensive you and your partner should stand side by side, enabling the two of you to cover more ground. Once on the offensive, you should switch to front and back, with the player in front sending low smashes in order to keep the offensive.

Name of student: Meagan Binns

Question: What is the best type of serve in order to gain an advantage over my opponent?

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

Answer: The best type of serve is playing a low straight serve. This gives the offense several advantages over the defense. First, it takes the least amount of time to cross over the net because it has the shortest distance to travel and limits your opponent's angle of reply which gives your opponent less time to react. Secondly, serving a low straight serve limits your opponents angle of attack. It is best when doing this type of serve to aim toward your opponent's front foot. It makes it more difficult for your opponent to decide whether to play a backhand or a forehand when returning it. This results in a change in his or her grip of the racket resulting in a delayed reaction in returning the birdie. Many prefer to serve low and wide rather than short and straight, however a low wide serve allows your opponent good angles of attack and should only be used every so often. When performing a low serve it is best to contact the birdie at higher point but still below the waist line and to push the birdie with the racket face. The main focus of a low serve is to make the birdie skim the tape of the net.

Question: What are some strategies or techniques for improving net play?

Answer: A simple pushing motion is recommended for net play. Strike the shuttle as high as possible. At a higher level, players sometimes incorporate a chopping or slicing motion. This chopping motion forces the shuttle to die quicker, which makes it more difficult for your oponent to return.

Question: How do you hit a backhand overhead clear shot?

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

Answer:

 

Step one :  Shuffle, or make cross-over steps, to quickly position yourself beneath and behind the shuttle as it falls deep in your weak side court.

 

Step two: Keep your grip in the forehand grip. This will allow you more power for thisbackhand shot.

 

Step three:  Point your racquet shoulder toward your target and your racquet elbow toward the approaching shuttle.

 

Step four: Flex your wrist to hold the racquet head low and across your chest, but keep your arm extended and your elbow just slightly bent.

 

Step Five: Swing your racquet by snapping your wrist, but not hyper-extending it.

 

Step Six: Strike the shuttle when it is about even with your body, or just slightly in front of you, and just above head height

 

Step Seven: Hit the shuttle with an open racquet face.

 

Step Eight: Follow through - upward and out, not across your body - to drive the shuttle as high and deep as possible.

Question: What is "smashing"? When would it be appropriate to use this?

URL Link to video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4ldi3h-KWs

Answer: There are three types of smashing. The most common, and the type that we use is class, is called the regular smash. This is when you turn sideways, you step, reach as high as you can in front of your body, snap your wrist, then swing down. This is used to get the birdie to the opponent fast, where they don't have time to think of their next move, and lower , so it is harder for them to get under the birdie and hit it.

Name of student: Robert Sharp

Question:What is the best strategy for playing singles?

URL Link to video: http://fliiby.com/file/458100/htzc27p55s.html

Answer: A typical serve will be aimed towards the back line to not give your opponent an advantage.  The serve should be hard, high and long as possible while remaining inbounds.  Your shots should move your opponents away from the ready position in order to place a winning shot.  The main strategy should be to aim your shots towards different corners of the court to set up a winning shot.  By making your opponent move around more they have more of a tendency to make mistakes.  Spreading the attack out amongst the court also helps to fatigue your opponent.  High shots are ideal for making your opponent move to the back of the court and overhand, smash, or drop shots are ideal for making them run to the front of the court.

Name of student: Blake Harris

Question: What are smash techniques for badminton?

URL Link to video: http://www.ehow.com/video_5113558_badminton-smash-techniques.html

Answer: The most typical smash is the regular smash. In this move, your stance is sideways to give you power. You extend your arm up as far as you can and snap your wrist down as you hit the ball. This move is very similar to the spike in volleyball. What's even more similar to the spike is the jump smash. This move is exactly the same as the regular smash, but in the jump smah you hit the ball in mid-air after you jump. The last smash is the cross smash. This smash is slightly more challenging because when you hit the ball in addition to smacking it hard and fast, you hit it so that it crosses across the court. All three of these moves are effective in making sure that the opponent isn't able to defend the hit and get the birdie back to your side of the net. The cross smash is an extremely useful technique for faking out the opponent by making them think that you are going to hit the ball straight, and you suprise them by hitting it diagonally.
