How to Return a Serve | Badminton Lessons


Now I’d like to say a couple words about the
Return a Serve. Basically, you’ll want to have your knees
slightly bent with your nondominant leg forward and your dominant arm raised to the level
of your eye so that you’re ready to hit the shuttle as quickly as possible. You want to have your knees slightly bent
so that you’re ready to move in any direction. Now remember, your opponent can either serve
short or they can flick it over your head. So you’ve got to be ready to move forward
aggressively and attack or move backwards and retrieve the shuttle. When you’re in a position to return serve
you’re typically in an offensive position. You’re in an attacking position. You want to keep that shuttle down all the
time and keep your opponent in a defensive position. Now, Chibin is going to demonstrate the return
of serve stance. As you will notice, the stance really is a
neutral position. You’ve got to be half expecting a short serve
and half expecting a flick serve. You’ve got to be ready to move forward or
backwards in a split second. And that’s your Return a Serve position.
