Badminton: Forehand Low Serve for Singles

Badminton: Forehand Low Serve for Singles


Forehand Low Service Singles Hello, I am Lee thank you for coming in this video I will demonstrate how to do low service in singles, forehand low service not backhand low service forehand low service first of all, how to hold the shuttle cock is important because have a look, if you hold shuttle cock like that vertical way and you drop the shuttle cock then shuttle will land straight way but if you have shuttle cock little bit like this and then you drop it, then shuttle will be moving which will effect the quality of flying and accuracy so hold, use all your fingers together gently but remember, make shuttle vertical rather than like that or like this or like this because it will effect the service now second thing as you see I am holding shuttle like this left hand side the right hand side the length is different 2 times longer so right hand side the length should be little bit reduced and the left hand side should be little bit stretched so, the distance the length of both arms including racket will be similar this is important the beginners when they learn the low service they try to often they let shuttle go over here and they hit here so they miss it because of this reason ok and the third point some times they take the shuttle too low like this so shuttle can go high up its better to take shuttle side little bit higher rather than like this because of the flying angle will be different have a look if a player do serve like that likely shuttle will go higher if they are doing side ways like that then the flying angle will not be steeper so its not that way its that way but be careful if you do too high that’s fault now in order to make right arm the length smaller, shorter you have to bend your elbow little bit and then left arm stretch little bit more so you go like this that is one way of movement for forehand service in singles in singles the player have to cover whole court the place of service will be better go little bit backwards, some where here so after serve ready rather than stay too close to the net and serve and move backwards then net area will be problem so don’t stay too close to the service line when you do singles low service and finally there is also different singles service what I explained to you just before, they know I am doing low service like this but some times player can do the deceptive low service in singles like this this is high service do low service from exact high service posture so its little bit more deceptive in this way you can surprise you can delay your opponents movement but better to do few in a game if you do too many then your opponent will be aware of these deceptions thank you for listening I hope you find something beneficial to you thank you

  1. Thanks Coach Lee!

  2. @Fazeddd You are very welcome. Lee

  3. What should my next ready posture and focus on after the short serve?

  4. It is depending on the way your opponent is taking shot. If your opponent is taking it early and fast then you have to cover the whole court. In order to limit your opponent return or prepare it better, you have to check him out by serving different arears (centre, corner and to his body) also different length(short and long.

  5. Then you will find how he return and which he is not good to return and where he is return. So you will be prepared it better. Your body posture should be low and your racket must be pointing the shuttlecock as you have much less time to react after low service. Lee

  6. how do you play when the shuttle is hit behind your back u are near the net and the shuttle is hit at the end of the court. please reply

  7. You must not follow/move shuttlecock. if you are right hander then you should move more on your left side so whuttlecock is still behind you but more on your right side then behind you. You must try to move on your left side and make shuttlecock on your right side. It does not matter if you have to take it late because of this. In this way you have more power to shuttlecock and more directions and you have faster recovery. Please view my backhand clear clips on how to move. Lee

  8. What is the tactic for short serve in single? Could I use this approch to limit the opponent's return? Where is the best location that the shuttlecock drop on the opponent's court, and how to train it?

  9. There are many tactical low service in singles. Serve to T, serve to the corner, doing long low service. I am planning to make single tactic DVD. It is better to wait bit as it is difficult to explain by words. Lee

  10. Thank you so much Coach Lee! You serve as my inspiration in playing my favorite sport, much love!
