Ten Top Tips...


1.   Avoid injury by properly warming up before starting to play.


2.   Try to aim shots to the opponents weaker side (usually backhand), to give the advantage off a weak return.


3.   Try to place shots before adding more power, because more power will usually result in more errors.


4.   Try to keep the opponent on the move as much as possible and not play "me to you" badminton.


5.   Try moving the opponent from the net to the back and from the forehand to backhand side.


6.   Keep winning, keep playing the same way


7.   Keep losing change the style of play


8.   Try to change the speed of play, by mixing up shots. Hit some slower drop and net shots, with faster shots in   between, such as, smashes, and drives.


9.   Always play to personal strengths and try to exploit the opponents weaknesses.


10. Vary your serve, from short to flick with the occasional wide serve.
