Tips for badminton beginners

  1. Nets are optional. Sometimes a pair of racquets, a shuttlecock and an open space are all you need. Grab a partner and see how long you can hit it back and forth without the birdie touching the ground.
  2. Generate strength from your racquet leg as you step into your shot. This will help you hit with more power and consistency.
  3. Hold the racquet tightly – but not too tightly. Allow your wrist to bend and adapt to the shot coming your way.
  4. Move your feet. Rather than alternating from your forehand to backhand, move your feet to get under the birdie. After you hit it, hustle back to the centre of the court to get ready for the next one.
  5. Always begin the serve below your waist. Try a strategic serve that just barely gets over the net, or a long one that forces your opponent to the back of the court.
  6. Traditional matches are to 21 points and a best of three games. A point is awarded every rally, but you have to win by two points.
  7. Get some friends and try a doubles match with men’s, women’s or mixed teams. No matter the outcome, be a good sport. Sure, winning is fun – but having a good time with your friends is even better.
