How to Play Badminton : Badminton Swing for Beginners


Welcome back to expertvillage.com. What we
are going to do a basic swing with a one, two,three, count. Make sure the base position
we have learned level to the legs side ways, bend the knees a little bit. One we would
be side ways. Same concept of pulling a bow of arrow. Shoulder needs to be level. The
grip should be in the proper forehand position. Left hand will serve like a guide when hitting
a shuttlecock. Left hand is very important for timing and eye contact on the shuttlecock.
Two would be the point of contact of the shuttlecock, which is one o’clock position. These would
be a twelve o’clock, one o’clock position. You got to make sure in every stroke in badminton
one o’clock position would be the proper way of hitting the shuttlecock, and then follow
through swinging down. Follow through is very important cause we need the weight transfer,
and the arm power on hitting the stroke and going back to the base position. We are going
to hit it faster this time. One, two and go back to base. Then moving on to the next step, we are going
to learn more different shots and demonstrate the one we learned today. The one,two,three
action and the basic swinging of a forehand shot.

  1. yah, but the main problem is his foot positioning…his foot positioning is wrong, cause he cant move forward if he position his foot like that…
    and another thing…its difficult to tell what motion hes trying to teach, smash or clear…cause clear, u dont need to swing like that and u dont throw ur shoulder down like that….full smash..u need to turn ur body more for the power…

  2. Stating that the 1 o'clock position to hit the shuttle is simply not true for all cases. Hitting a clear from that position is near impossible because the racquet face is slightly closed on impact.
