Tacticians in badminton tens of thousands, first serve, strikes not standardized, and teammates cry

Article 9 of Badminton Competition Rules "Serving Ball" details what a legal service is.

Serve can be divided into serve on right and serve on left. Generally speaking, front ball, flat fast ball, and flat high ball can be done with either right or left serve technique, while high and long ball must use right serve technique.

Badminton often uses wrist skills such as wrist extension, flexion and flexion to play an important role in serving. So, before learning content of serve, you must first understand movement of wrist.

The serve is technique used at start of each points competition. At same time, serving is also a tactic, such as limiting opponent's front or backcourt. A good serve may allow initiative to be seized in subsequent confrontation, while a bad serve may allow opponent to seize initiative.

In particular:

The serve can be divided into serve on right and serve on left. Generally speaking, front ball, flat fast ball, and flat high ball can be done with either right or left serve technique, while high and long ball must use right serve technique.

1. Right feed

Right serve

Tee position

Single players serve near center line, standing about 1 meter from front service line. Pairing rooms may be located closer to front service line.

Finished pose

The left shoulder of body is facing net, left foot is in front, right foot is behind, center of gravity is on right foot, right hand is pressed against back right side, elbow is relaxed and slightly bent, and thumb, index and middle fingers of left hand are pinched. Hold ball between your chest and stomach. When serving, center of gravity of body shifts from right foot to left. Serve from right, regardless of which arc ball is served in, posture before serving must be same, which will cause difficulties in assessing reception and serve of the opponent.

High ball:

The trajectory of ball is high and far, ball falls perpendicular to ground, ball falls close to opponent's bottom line. When serving, left hand holds ball in front of right side of torso and naturally lowers it down so that ball falls, while right hand holds racket and forearm drives forearm, swinging forward along body from right back and up to left. When ball falls to point where right arm reaches forward and down and can touch ball, hold racket firmly and use wrist strength to hit ball forward and upward. After hitting ball, racket deviates to upper left corner for buffering.

Ping golf

It is a ball that is lower than a tall ball, has a higher speed and speed than a long ball, and has a certain degree of attack. The process of serving is much same as when serving a high ball, except that at moment of hitting ball, forearm accelerates, causing wrist to swing forward and upward, and surface of racket must be tilted forward and upward. , mainly with translational force. When serving a high ball, pay attention to arc of ball to a height at which opponent cannot reach ball when he catches ball, and should be sent to opponent's bottom line.

Quick ball

This ball has a smaller arc and faster speed than a golf ball. Position later than high ball (to prevent opponent from returning to backcourt any time soon) Make full use of forearm to use explosive force of wrist to propel ball forward The ball goes straight over opponent's shoulder and directly attacks opponent's backcourt. The key to serving a flat fast ball is to make shot small and fast, but early action must match tall and long ball. When serving a flat fastball, you should also pay attention not to hit your arm or waist.


The front serve is main serve technique used in doubles. When hitting ball, grip should be relaxed, movement of shoulder should be small, mainly rely on forearm to move wrist forward, and force should be light. When serving ball in front of net, care must be taken not to raise wrist, in addition, landing point must be near front service line, and ball must stick to net so that it is not taken by opponent.

2. Feed left

Serving from left is characterized by small movements, fast serves and difficult assessment of opponent. This serving technique is often used in doubles matches.

The service station stands 10-50 cm behind front service line and next to center line of service zone, or may stand at front service line and sideline of court (in doubles matches, seen when serving from the right field zone) arrive).

Preparatory Pose Facing net, stand with both feet forward and backward (left or right foot forward is acceptable), upper body leaning slightly forward, and body center of gravity on front foot. Hold racquet on back with your right hand, with your left thumb, index and middle fingers, pinch two or three feathers of ball, ball holder is clearly pointing down (to avoid fouls), ball is parallel to surface of racket or ball holder is aligned with surface of racket and is located in front of surface of racket .

Basic Serving Actions When hitting ball, forearm pushes wrist forward and hits. When serving ball in front of net, effort should be light, mainly due to "cut"; 02 Common filing mistakes:

1. Regardless of whether serve is right or left, if any part of shuttlecock is above waistline or equal to waistline at moment of service, that is, at moment racket touches ball with head, service is considered to be above belt. Please note that in ready to serve position, that is, when head of ball does not touch racket, it is allowed to throw shuttlecock over belt.

2. At moment of service, if shaft of server's racket is not pointing down, so that entire head of racket is above or close to holder's hand, service is considered to be over.

The feather cannot be cut first at moment of delivery, this is to prevent player from performing strange "ball spin" trick.

3. During service, both feet may not step on line, leave ground, or move. Note that toe does not leave ground at moment of delivery, but it is not a foul to stand on tiptoe.

4. The process of serving ball requires a continuous strike of ball forward at one time, while there should be no false movements with a sense of pause.

5. The essence of all serving norms is to limit and weaken "aggressiveness" of serve. The orientation of badminton rules does not require server to score directly, which will seriously affect enjoyment of game. Coach Li Shiwei once mentioned special situation that occurs in international competitions: “As for serving, even if there is no foul in terms of structure of action, but ball is too aggressive, referee will still consider you a foul. "< /p>

6. Finally, and, of course, most importantly, serving height should not exceed 1.15 meters.

The above is an analysis of content of couples feed, most of which are personal opinions, I hope you can take essence, discard dross and get something useful for yourself.
