How to hold a racquet: Learning to play badminton, of course, starts with a racquet. Without "weapons" how can we "fight"!

Right grip method: The tiger's mouth is facing small edge of narrow side of handle, thumb and forefinger are attached to two wide sides of handle, index and middle fingers are slightly separated, and middle finger, ring finger, and little finger are brought together to hold racket. The handle should not be close to palm, end of handle should be flat with hypothenar muscle near wrist, and surface of racket should be almost perpendicular to ground.

Left-hand grip method: Based on right-hand grip, thumb and forefinger turn handle slightly outward, top of thumb is on wide surface or inner edge of handle, and middle and ring fingers and little finger are held together Hold handle, end of handle is close to base of little finger, leaving a gap in palm, racket is tilted towards left side of body, and front of racket is slightly tilted.

Serving technique: Having learned how to hold racket, let's see how to serve. A good serve is a necessary condition for winning because a bad serve directly prevents you from getting ball. The opponent's return and serve technique can be divided into right and left serve techniques. In general, right serve method can be used to serve ball in front of net, serve ball, serve a high ball, serve ball, and serve ball in front of net.

High and long ball delivery: The so-called high and long ball is to send ball high and far so that ball goes into opponent's backcourt and falls vertically at bottom line of court.

Serving from right in front of net: The service in front of net consists of sending ball near front service line into opponent's service zone and passing by landing near the opponent's front service line.

Low serve from left: The serve from left is characterized by high serve speed and difficult placement, especially for flat and long shots. power to parry. When hitting ball, surface of racket forms a slight angle of inclination (acute angle) with shuttlecock, which is the opposite of a flat, high ball. This is a fast, low-level ball.

Power Technique: When it comes to badminton technique, we have to talk about basic "strength" technique. If you want to crush egg with your hands, you need to use your thumb, index and middle fingers are clamped with strength of whole hand, not with strength of whole hand. Similarly, for badminton, if you hold racket firmly and hit shuttlecock with strength of whole palm, it will be difficult to achieve delicate ball control and use. Concentrate on one point and blast.

Relaxation: before playing, body should be relaxed and ready to go. The most important thing in this relaxation is to relax wrist, then fingers will naturally relax and racket will not be compressed. The movement of shot is not hard. In addition to relaxing wrist, waist and legs should be relaxed. If it is tense, it will be difficult to show strength. The body must also be relaxed so that it can swing. Affects power and speed of the blow.

Accelerated Swing: The swing movement must be sudden. The swing process is process of speeding up swing. It must be explosive. The faster swing, harder ball is hit. The process must be calm, movement must have a sense of rhythm, and moment of hitting the ball must suddenly accelerate.

Wrist Glitter: This is essence of game of badminton and most important part of applying strength. The so-called "wrist throw" means that after throwing whip, wrist should suddenly stop, and not follow swing. Continue swinging towards racket. This pause will cause initial speed of ball to be extremely fast. After opponent passes, he will slow down and fall, and will not go out of bounds. Not high enough, etc. , also can play a quality ball.

Smash technique. The smash is one of most offensive moves in badminton. It includes jumping, right and left strikes. Light and heavy, slow and urgent.

Jump Kill: The jump kill position is approximately three-quarters of field. The position should be such that feet are shoulder-width apart, body is at an angle of 45 degrees to net, and feet are behind grip When jumping, move backward After jumping, racket should raise lower part of head above head, hold racket in front and hit quickly and hard on ball.

Forehand Strike: Choose a position that is usually behind but not behind back line, facing net sideways, feet shoulder-width apart, bend your right arm up to expand your chest, and straighten your left arm to maintain body balance. Hit ball hard and move fast. When hitting ball overhead, tighten your abdominal muscles as you lean back to balance your body and quickly return to starting position.

Backhand: Select position for a three-quarters backhand. When you're ready to hit ball, start in middle of court and turn your body to left. At same time, rotate your shoulders so that your elbows are pointing down and your right hand is holding racquet hand. When you hit ball, take your left hand back to keep your balance.

When turning ball, turn your body to right, push off ground to increase strength, and at same time, tighten your back, rotate your upper body and shoulders so that your elbows are turned up, and then extend your elbows and rotate your arm a little, quickly hit ball if you want to kill a straight ball, your shoulders should point towards center line at moment you hit ball. After hitting ball, quickly turn around and get ready to defend.

In badminton, combination of killing ball and controlling net will give more effect. It's nice to kill an enemy with one shot, but never think that you can kill an enemy with one shot. Consider breaking ball. as a means of attacking enemy and creating better opportunities.

If you want to practice hitting ball well, you must first keep up with wrist strength, and position of force must be correct. It depends on strength of "shake" and "throw" of wrist. you can find a rope to tie ball to a high place, and practice fixing ball, breaking it. =, test grip point when hitting ball, point of impact must be in front of center of gravity.

Adjust landing point of kick: try to straighten your arm to kill ball, and point of impact slightly forward, which can help apply enough force and make angle sharper. If possible, try to push off and break ball. The point of ball is higher, and psychological threat to opponent is greater!

Kicking should be varied: more changes make it easier to hit shot without blindly chasing speed of shot, try not to kill when opponent hits ball well enough, find opponent's catching habit well, For an opponent who likes to catch ball all time with his lower right hand, he will often subconsciously move to left before catching and killing. At this time, kill must be done in advance, and he can land right under left shoulder to hit the target.

Rebounding Technique: The rebounding needs to be in place so defense can "get twice score with half effort", so how do we do that?

Right Choice: Take racket in your hand and hold it in front of your chest, take a big step forward with your right foot, step your left foot back, turn sideways to ball, focus on your right foot and at same time take your right hand back, extend your wrist naturally to racket is pulled back, then use elbow joint as a pivot, bend your arm and turn inward, hold racket firmly and use finger and wrist pointer power to hit ball forward and upward.

Rebounding from left: hold racket in front of chest, take a big step forward with right foot, shift weight to right foot and at same time turn right shoulder towards net, bend elbow. pull racket up to your left shoulder and then use your elbow. The joint is axis, hold racket from bottom up through front of body, press wide surface of handle with first knuckle of thumb and hit the ball hard!
