Skill #2 Stance the defensive position that a player should perform when waiting on their opponent(s) return

Attacking Stance -It is used to get into position before playing an overhead forehand stroke. To stand in the attacking stance turn your body facing the sidelines with racket leg behind and both legs shoulder-width apart. Raising both racket and non-racket arms willl generate the power to attack the shuttle on its downward trajectory.

Defensive Stance To defend the opponent’s smash, you need to be prepared with the defensive stance. Face the body to the net and place your racket in front at waist height, slightly pointing forward.Player can keep the non-racket arm as comfortable while ensuring a better balance.

Net Stance this stance is to be ready for the opponent’s return after playing a net shot. To play this shot, place your foot on the racket side forward while keeping a non-racket foot at the back. Place the racket in front of the body, slightly above waist height while raising the non-racket arm. Shift the body weight slightly forward to be ready to pounce forward.

Skill #3 Footwork the speed and skill with which a player moves from one zone of the court to another during the game

Footwork Footwork plays a huge role in helping with an effective and organized movement on the court. In fact, some coaches even raise footwork to prime importance over other skills.

Tips for Proper Footwork : Always remember the base (starting point). Move only 2-3 steps backward. Shuffle only 1 step side wards. Move only 2-3 steps front.

Skill#4 Serve It is the way the shuttle is put into play

High Serve High serve aims at the back-end corner of the opponent’s court. Ideally, a good high serve results in the shuttle dropping steeply downwards at the back end of the court. It is recommended to serve the shuttle to the opponent’s backhand area. This to exploit the weaker backhand that exists in the game of most of the players.

Low serve Unlike high serve, the low serve aims to the front of the court. The objective is to let the shuttle fly just above the net landing in the front corner of the court. In this case, your opponent has the opportunity to dash forward and smash the shuttle to you if the execution is poor.

Skill#5 Smash an offensive shot shot fired from a high point and travels down steeply towards your opponent A perfectly executed smash has no defense This badminton skill is the most aggressive and technical one..

Forehand smash A forehand smash is an overhead smash that a player hits with all the tempo downwards. It’s almost akin to throwing a ball straight. This skill in badminton acts as a game-changer for beginners.

Backhand This badminton smash is a tough and smash perfectly offensive shot. But it’s a tough nut to crack, even experts still abide from using it, unless it is necessary. To execute this stroke, getting the backhand grip is extremely important. Also, it is equally important to return back to stance. Backhand smash skill in badminton requires years of practice and consistency.

Jumping Smash A jump smash is basically taking a jump before hitting the shuttle to give it a steeper angle and making it very hard for the opponent to return.

Skill#6 and #7 Drop Shot a ball or shuttlecock so softly hit that it falls to the playing surface just after clearing the net Clear or Lob a normal badminton lob, but with an offensive purpose

Fast Drop Drop Shot Slow Drop Amongst all the basic skills in Badminton, the drop shot is the most technical one. Badminton Drop Shots are delicate badminton shots that can win you points that aim at scoring points in deception. Played with both backhand and forehand, these are used to move the opponent to the frontcourt. This creates space in the midcourt and backcourt for you to exploit.

Clear or Lob Long High Clear The lob shot in Badminton Flat High Clear can be imagined as a shot with an inverted ‘U’ trajectory. It is normally played from the forecourt with an aim to lift or ‘lob’ the shuttle over the opponent. The idea is to land it as near to the baseline as it is, at an angle that is impossible to clear.

Court Dimensions

In whatever settings, the court Dimension Should be as follows

Net Dimensions Total width: 20 ft Total height at the posts: 5 ft 1 inch Total height at the center: 5 ft Net height: 2 ft 6 inch These main dimensions are c ompleted with two less important ones. The first is that the top of the net needs to be finished with a white tape that is 2 15/16” and that is doubled over the top cord. That means that the tape measures 1 1/2” on each side. In addition to that, the mesh of the net has a thickness of between 9/16” & 13/16“.

Rules of the Game

Rules of the Game Rules A match consists of the best of three games of 21 points. The player/pair winning a rally adds a point to its score. At 20-all, the player/pair which first gains a 2-point lead wins that game. Rules At 29-all, the side scoring the 30th point wins that game. The player/pair winning a game serves first in the next game. A badminton match can be played by two opposing players (singles) or four opposing players (doubles).

Rules of the Game Rules A competitive match must be played indoors utilizing the official court Rules dimensions. A point is scored when the shuttlecock lands inside the opponent's court or if a returned shuttlecock hits the net or lands outside of the court the player will lose the point. At the start of the rally, the server and receiver stand in diagonally opposite service courts. A legal serve must be hit diagonally over the net and across the court.

Rules of the Game Rules A badminton serve must be hit underarm and below the server's waist Rules height with the racquet shaft pointing downwards, the shuttlecock is not allowed to bounce. After a point is won, the players will move to the opposite serving stations for the next point. The rules do not allow second serves. During a point a player can return the shuttlecock from inside and outside of the court. A player is not able to touch the net with any part of their body or racket. A player must not deliberately distract their opponent.

Rules of the Game Rules A player is not able to hit the shuttlecock twice. A 'let' may be called by the referee if an unforeseen or accidental issue arises. A game must include two rest periods. These are a 90-second rest after the first game and a 5-minute rest after the second game.

Scoring How the sport will be scored In recent years, badminton has changed how players can score a point. In 2006, the rules des/zp9ck7h/revision/3#:~:text=A% were changed to a rally point system and this 20badminton%20match%20can%2 now allows both players to score a point during 0be,four%20opposing%20players% 20(doubles). a rally, regardless of who served. In competitive adult matches, all games are played to a best of three games. To win a game, a player must reach 21 points. However, if the game is tied at 20-20 (or 20-all) then you are required to win by two clear points. Unlike most sports, however, if the score becomes 29-29 (or 29-all), the player or team to score the 30th point will win the game.


Officials The referee is in overall charge of a badminton tournament or championship(s) of which a match forms part, to uphold the Laws of Badminton and Competition Regulations in the BWF Statutes. Individual singles matches require a total of six officials: an umpire who is in charge of the match, the court and its immediate surroundings four line judges (two for each side of the court positioned at the baseline) who indicate whether a shuttlecock landed 'in' or 'out' on the line(s) assigned a service judge Doubles matches require a total of eight officials. This is as above but an additional two line judges are sometimes added (one for each side of the court positioned at the doubles service line).
