Question: How do i know where to serve the birdie when playing doubles?

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KB-ZGDlaN_0

Answer: The main place you want to put the birdie when serving is short . This is because you want to get your opponent out of defensive position and give you an easy shot back to finish the game. Serving deep is fine, but it give the other team more time to set up and make a play of where to put the birdie back at you. Serving short also adds on to the factor of the opposing team trying too hard and placing the birdie out of the court or trying to be too gentle and placing the birdie in the net. Both factors ending with you getting a point. 

Good question

Question:What is the best strategy to win in playing singles?

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRBA3jmM_E4

Answer: The best strategy for winning in singles is to first have a high clear serve.  This allows you to make your opponent have to move back to hit the birdie.  Which allows them to be out of position.  Next once they are out of position you have the choice which most of the time will be to hit a drop shot to keep your opponent moving.  Hitting a drop shot after a high clear serve means your opponent has to move up to the net in order to get your drop shot. That is a key to badminton in singles is you always want your opponent to be moving and out of the ready position.  After the drop shot you hit it deep again or somewhere to where your oppenent has to move in order to hit the birdie.  Once again the main takeaway is that you always want your opponent out of the ready position and constantly moving.

Question: What is the best mixed doubles formation?

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OskxOnO8HA4

Answer: The women usually stand in the front court with the men in the back.  When attacking, the front back positions should be used with the man in the back and woman in front.  While defending, the side side formation should be used with each player covering a side of the court.  This is generally how the formation goes because men tend to be stronger than women, so their power is needed in the backcourt.

Question: How to Play Badminton Doubles?

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

Answer:  In badminton doubles, there's teamwork required, and one player usually stands in the front, while the other stands in the back. when they are playing usually serve stand in the front and the partner stand in the back. Same gulde as receiver in the front and partner in the back. Usually when somebody hit up the birdie, youe need to be ready that opponent will hit down the birdie. You also need to be realy, when opponent hit up the birdie. You need to hit down because you want to win.

 

Create a more specific question. This is too broad. What about doubles do you want to know?

Name of student: Ashley L Little

Question: When playing doubles, what is the best strategy to win?

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNBCPz3EIQk

Answer: Hitting downwards as much as possible. Whenever possible, a pair will adopt an ideal attacking formation with one player hitting down from the rear court while the partner is in the midcourt intercepting all smash returns.  If the rearcourt attacker plays a dropshot the partner will move into the forecourt to threaten the net reply.  If a pair can not hit downwards, they will use flat strokes in attempt to gain the attack.  Also, the straight low serve is used frequently in attempt to prevent the opponents gaining the attack immediatley. Overall, to win the players need to be prepared to play a variety of strokes because they don't know what their opponent is going to do. They also almost always need to be ready for smashes because the games get aggressive and are really fast.

Name of student: Lee Curry

Question: When playing level doubles, what defensive strategy should my team adopt?

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

Answer: In your defensive formation, play your shot so as to not give the opponent an attack shot.  This includes drives or net shots that keep the birdie in front of him or her.  If your return forces your opponent to make a non-attacking return, you or your teammate should move in towards the net to be in position for a kill/attack shot.  This is an example of good defense developing into the best offense.  To quote the old man who plays table tennis in the HPER, "First, you defend.  THEN - YOU ATTACK."

Question: If you are playing badmindon singles against an opponent that can hit more powerful shots than you, but they are slow moving, what is the best tactic for making it hard for them to return your shots?

URL Link to video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIQbvj9oHUA

Answer: You need to aim the birdie as far away from them as possible. It might be intimidating to play someone who is great at smash shots, but if you can aim the birdie away from them they will not have time to set up for this shot. So if this opponent is in the back right court, a great shot to return would be an overhead drop shot to the front left court. They will probably be expecting it to head towards the back. They won't be able to move to the front quickly enough to return it.

Name of student: Tanvi Chowdhary

Question: What is the best tactic to follow regarding placement of the birdie on court when playing with a strong opponent?

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUKj5rqyFSg&feature=related

Answer:

1. Hit the shuttle to the empty spaces - You will force him to move away from his centre.

2. Hit the shuttle to the space furthest away from your opponent - If he hits the shuttle from his backhand rearcourt you could hit your next

shot to his forehand forecourt so he has to travel the long diagonal of the

court. Or you could hit the shuttle first to his forehand FC and then to his

backhand RC.

3. Hit the shuttle to the space your opponent is leaving - This was discussed in the last class as well.

4. Hit the shuttle to the spaces at the sides of the direction your opponent is travelling in - He may be more of a straight line runner and not good at changing direction quickly to the sides.

Question: Where is the best place to serve in singles?

URL Link to video:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRBA3jmM_E4

Answer: The best place to serve when playing singles is to serve high and long and have the birdie fall vertically on the back line.  If this is done correctly it won't give your opponent the advantage up front, where you could miss the return. This will keep your opponent moving to the corners.  This will give you the advantage up front, especially if they are slow moving.

Name of student: Raymond Bart Simmons

Question: To set up for kill shot in badminton, what are the two best shots to hit?

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqKyF_OPW5c

Answer:

1.      1.   If your opponent is in the ready position or towards the front of the court, it is best to hit a clear to the far back of the court which normally forces your opponent to hit a defensive return and at the same time generates a large amount of room in front of your opponent in which the either hit a drop or a smash in front of them.  Hitting the clear also gets your opponents momentum going away from the net which hinders their ability to recover to the ready position

2.       2.  The other shot is to hit the birdie low and in front of your opponent that does not allow him or her to return the birdie with a swing at or above the waist.  Thus the birdie will be returned on an upward trajectory which should give the best opportunity for you to hit a smash.

Question: How to catch your opponent off guard in singles or doubles badminton

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

Answer: Throw in some disguised low serve occasionally and you might catch your opponent off guard and win a point outright.  Stay 3-4 feet behind the short line, turn your non-racquet shoulder toward the your target. Hold you racquet down low at your side with wrist cocked, so that the racquet head is behind your wrist. Drop the shuttle straight down. Swing the racquet forward in an underhand forehand swing. Hit the shuttle very lightly with an open racquet face, so that it flies low and short into your opponents court.

Question:  When is the best time to hit a net shot and how do you react afterwards?

URL Link to video:  http://www.ehow.com/video_2286940_drop-shot-badminton.html

Answer:  A very tight spinning net shot can be as decisive as a net kill, especially if your opponent is not near the net.  Extremely tight net shots are preferable to flat net kills.  Unless your opponent is at the net, these net shots should always be played straight. If your opponent is at the net already, however, you may consider playing a cross-court net shot instead—but remember this will not be as tight, because you cannot use spin.  After playing a very tight net shot, stay close to the net: you should be looking to play a net kill. Keep your right side angled towards the shuttle, so that you are ready to leap forwards.

Question:  When is it best to use a back hand drop shot?

URL Link to video:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njKjO7-RdOk

Answer:  Back hand drop is used when it is used in rare court when you can't play fore hand.  It brings your opponents forward, which helps you bring in rally.  Back hand drop is hit from your rare court in your opponents fore court.  Which brings your opponents forward, which will give you chance to exploit the back space.  Back hand drop is more seen in singles, then in doubles.  Back hand drop helps you when you are out maneuvered, and but hitting back hand drop low it will make it hard for your opponent to respond quickly, giving you time again to position yourself.  To have a proper back hand drop keep the racket up and right angle from your body.  Turn your body slighty and use back hand to hit the birdie, your hand should move with your racket hand.

Question: Where is the best place to stand in doubles?

URL Link to video: http://www.badmintondoubles.com/badminton-tactics/badmintontactics1

Answer: If you are in a defensive formation stand side by side, equally apart, where you can both get to the birdie. And if you are in an attacking formation stand one person in the front and one person in the back so that you can either smash it, drop it, or clear it.

Question: In doubles, what should be the arrangement of team members?

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

Answer: There are two main positions for doubles teams. Either a side to side or back/front positioning.  Side to side is used when playing a defensive shot. However, if preparing to return your opponents defensive shot with a smash offensive shot, the team should switch to a back/front position.

Question: What is the key strategy in playing badminton with a doubles partner?

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

Answer: The key strategy is cooperation.  Decide where each person is going to stand during the match and delegate responsibility for zones of the court.  Remember to crouch low enough when the shuttlecock is behind you so that your partner can easily hit shots over your head.  When playing with a partner, keep your eyes forward and trust your partner! Do not attempt to reach all of the shots yourself, doubles is a team game.

Question: Why should you hit different serves in singles, and when is the best time to use different serves?

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

Answer:  serving tactics in badminton are different in singles then in doubles. In doubles, the low serve is usually tactically the best. However in singles it is better to change your serve up by serving to the forecourt and also the rear court. To decide which serve to hit, ask yourself questions like "Where is your opponent weaker?" "where are you stronger". If you feel as if you have a strong net game compared to your opponent, then it would be better to hit a low serve. On the other hand, if your opponent is much stronger then you at the net, it may be better to hit a serve to the rear part of the court. Also while serving, get a feel for how your opponent is returning your serve.

If you can get a good feel for your opponent and there abilities, you will be able to see which serve gives him/her the most trouble. The high serve is probably the best choice for most players because most opponents are weaker in the rear court, plus it gives you more time to get ready for the next shot. If your opponent is miss hitting the shuttlecock when you play a high serve, keep doing it. However if your opponent has a good smash shot with a deceptive drop shot, hitting a low serve would be better.

Question:  How should you hold your racket for defense in badminton?

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3EEjbL7peY

Answer:  The best way to hold your racket when going on the defensive is in the backhand position.  This way you can react to the birdie faster.  Also, you have a wider range of movement than in the forehand positon because your body can get in the way requiring you to move your feet taking up time you may not have if your opponent hit a smash shot.

Question: How to Find Your Ready Position in Badminton

URL Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SV4coQd8IY&feature=related

Answer: The ready position is in the center of court. It's the same distance to all the corner of the court. You put your weight on the front of the foot. The back foot is barely touching. The racket is in front of you, about the height of the shoulder so you can move up or down. You should keep balance so you can move forward or backward. You should be able to come back to the ready position after you get the birdy.

Question: How important the central base position in badminton single play?

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

Answer: When you play singles, that means you have to cover all the court. if you stand either too far to the front, back, right or left, you can make a huge gap in which the opponent may place the birdie, and you won't be able to reach it. Therefore, the best position for playing singles in badminton is central base position.

Question: When playing doubles, what is the best way to get communication across such a small court to your partner, to prevent running into them?

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

Answer:  Well after watching videos, communication is definitely an important key in playing doubles; However it didn't seem that they talked much to eachother. That is because if it is a good team, they don't really need to, they know where the other partner should be. In badminton doubles, there's team work required, and one player usually stands in the front, while the other stands in the back. The player that stands in the back usually hits the defensive shots, which are usually high. And the server, or other partner, usually stands closer to the net, hitting the shorter hits to score. Having these postitions laid out helps prevent you and your teammate from running into each other.
