Badminton Double Rotation After Midcourt Game If I look at the drop shots from midcourt You can make a pretty simple rule of thumb The more I play on his side the more I want him to stay the more I play on my side, I want to follow my shuttle If I play a hard flat one now – what is the worst case scenario? what kind of strokes can the opponent play? What are the most dangerous ones? Not the high clears – because we have time (even though we need to run 🙂 Drop shot in the middle? We can go there with one jump (but we need of course to decide who takes it) My answer: The hard flat one! We need to make sure we cover this first! We need to cover this also side by side! When my partner is at the net and I play hard, I might run into problems. To cover the flat hard one or a flat lift would be difficult then. A high cross is difficult, but I have enough time though. That’s why if I want to play hard here I need my partner oriented back in midcourt That’s why that in the classic Indo system My partner recognizes if I am in the outer midcourt he takes a step backwards towards midcourt other side And if I play hard, we both have to cover overhead immediately but if I play short in front of him he would go forward again and vice versa if I play in front of me to the net, I move forward. This is the same in every system – tunnel, Indo, cross covering and wedge Hope you enjoy the 4th part of the Badminton Double Rotation Tutorial Please Like and Subscribe!
