---Badminton Basics For BEGINNERS (or Intermediate too ;- Protected content
As a beginner, you should learn the basics BEFORE learning how to hit badminton shots.

1.Basic Gripping Technique
2.Basic Footwork
3.Basic Badminton Strokes
4.Badminton Serve
5.Basic Stance

Remember this: In order to become an intermediate or advanced player, you MUST master the basics, make them your habit, then train and train and train.

Once you get your basics right, learning those advanced or fancy badminton shots are just a matter of time!

---Basic Badminton SHOTS---
When you are familiar with the badminton basics, you can start learning some basic badminton shots.
These shots are sufficient for you to win rallies in a beginner’s game.

1. Defensive High CLEAR/LOB
Lobbing is mainly used as a defensive shot. When you’re out of position, hit the high clear/lob to ‘buy’ yourself time to recover. Learn the techniques to execute a badminton clear/lob.
2. DROP Shots
Make sure you have a variation of shots in your games. Drop shots are perfect to variate the pace of the rally.
Rallies are often put away with the smash. It is the most powerful shot in badminton — learn the correct smashing technique… and executing a smash with power will be easy.
4. NET Play
Dominate the front area of the court by having good net playing skills. Learn techniques such as the tumbling net shot, net kill, and net lift.

YOU must provide your own Badminton Game Equipment:
---Badminton RACKET
Use, please, a racket that works to your strengths!
Not the one your favourite badminton player uses! :D


Well, well, well...
