Post Badminton Tips on improving your game
Rush your game when your opponent's starts to get upset. In this case, they will make more mistakes and get more upset. But REMEMBER: you have to keep calm (or look calm) even though you are VERY UPSET with your games." "Make sure you have a pair of sandals; all badminton players should have a pair. (it's just convenient!)" "DO NOT buy an expensive racket if you are a beginner ("D" or "C-" level players) because other beginners may hit your beloved racket. When playing net shots, you have to believe in yourself." "Always apologize after you hit your opponent even if you are happy about that." "Always pick up the birdie from the floor and hand it to your opponent.

Post Re: Badminton Tips on improving your game
Hi

Every serious badminton player will always try to improve his game by watching professional players in action or by getting help from more experienced players. However, one still needs to hone his individual skills to improve his game. These considerations below are always helpful in trying to improve your game.

1. Always warm-up your body in order to avoid injuries before play. Stretching your arms and legs are essential in loosening up the muscles and tendons in conditioning your body prior to the game. After the game it is always advisable to warm-down or cool down. It’s a good habit to practice.

2. Physical stamina plays a very important part in the game. In long rallies you need stamina to sustain your attack and defence positions. Constant exercises and calisthenics can be very beneficial in building the overall fitness of the body.

3. Mental strategies can play a very powerful role in our game. Positive attitudes like a winning mindset can overcome difficulties.

4. A comfortable racket grip is equally important in improving the game. You need to have a grip that suits your holding so that you can have full control of the racket.

5. A good player always has a sense of anticipation and concentration. You can anticipate your opponent’s move by studying the direction of the racket face (but it could be tricky at times with good players who changes direction at will).

6. The art of deception is not easy to execute. It comes with years of practice and with proper execution of the stroke it can be very lethal. Usually a deceptive player will be able to fake a move to trick an opponent in such a way that he is caught flat-footed. With proper timing and momentum this move can be crafted in a beautiful manner. A deceptive move is always a joy to watch! Deceptive moves include drop shots, cross court lobs, short backhand smash and deadly stinging sharp drops.

7. Proper footwear is just as important. For badminton we need a pair of proper court shoes so as to ensure proper grip of the court surface.

8. In the game proper after returning a shot, one should always return to the centre position. When out of position always try to lob to the baseline to recover your position.

9. Try to control the game by tiring your opponent and hit shots to his backhand (usually weaker return). You can move him around the court by playing to his right and left of the court.

Thanks
