Badminton Doubles: Helping the Rear Court Player

Helping The Rear Court Player Hello, I am Lee thank you for coming In this video I will show you the number 3 situation in doubles which is front player is helping rear court player have a look please ok, there is situation like this imagine you are at the net like that when shuttle goes to the rear court some where middle some where there then we call it attacking situation you move same side little bit backward you ready for intercept and net kill but if your partner is moving from that corner to that deep corner can you go there please deeper, much deeper, yeah that corner then you don’t do like that in this situation because that’s too much room is left in that situation, you think your partner is under pressure and he will find difficult to go from that corner to that corner then you move backwards your feet should be little bit that way this feet position will allow you to go to that corner if opponent lift shuttle there then you go and then your partner will go to forward again ready please ok could you go that corner and then you will change like this 1 2 3 you are ready and then ready like that over there you change like this 1 2 3 corners ready rather than you stand here, you change it too close, too far so you move backward little bit and ready like single ok two players will show you how to do this one have a look please watch front player, how they move they will be here at the beginning shuttle goes backward they move backward and then change the feet little bit in order to cover the emptier areas ok ready go ok like this shuttle is that corner ready shuttle is this corner and then ready shuttle is that corner change it go that corner ok like that excellent so, if you feel your partner under pressure very deep corner, then you move backward change feet and then if shuttle goes that corner you go rather than you just stay at net leave every thing to the partner which is not good like this ok don’t handle it just stay ready go corner corner corner yeah, that’s not possible so, doubles the important thing is to help your partner like this now look corner and hit corner hit second point here imagine your partner is under pressure you move backwards change your feet, try to help the other corner but please remember, the front two corners are your main responsibility, you must not forget this one you cover this one first and then if you can help your partner’s corner not, every thing to try and help your partner’s corner and you forget about your main responsibility have a look please this is not the right way to do it ok shuttle goes corner ready for rear and forget about net which is wrong ready go like this and then that is not right also same this is not right this corner ready for that corner no you must be ready for net first and then help rear court like this ready rear court is empty but still you are able to do that still you are able to do that and then empty and you go thank you very much so not don’t forget your main responsibility change please one more ready go ready corner and then yes like that corner, ready for rear ready for net you might ask why the player front court player change their feet from like this to like that or like that that feet position allows the player to move that empty corner quicker than other ones have a look please ok just, Robin, you rest when feet is like that because that’s empty then much quicker from that posture smash please like this rather than face like this, more like that that position is better for net rather than, that corner that position, side by side is good for intercept or good for there but side by side face me, yeah like that that one is not good there but if you change like this like this yeah like that its ok also its ok there one more there that’s why depending on which corner is empty your feet can be like this or like that I hope you are able to perform this way of movement some time in the near future thank you

  1. very instructive video, thank you!

  2. @mariadicuableable Thank you too. Lee

  3. Regarding the footwork in doubles, as opposite to singles, I am wondering if there are additional aspects we should keep in mind. I am aware of the movement pattern in singles – starting with the step one – but I hesitate about what is specific to doubles and singles… (in footwork, body posture, racket…
    I will continue watching your videos for guidance, the fact that you also explain the logica behind the technics makes your videos very useful indeed.
    With best regards,

  4. @mariadicuableable Most of movement skills are same between singles and doubles. Step one, pausing step, recovery step and facing the shuttlecock is same. But there are more detail skills on feet position in singles then doubles depending on situation. These clips will be made in the future as they and much more advanced. Thank you for your kind comment on my clip. Lee

  5. I must express how appreciative I am for all the videos you are posting on Youtube. Last December I was a D grade player playing for A/B grade and was really having a hard time. I never had any training and had used that as an excuse for all my failures. But then one night I played a really bad game and even my partner was annoyed with me. Disappointed with myself I searched for some coaching videos on Youtube and stumbled on your videos.

  6. You have shown all the things I am doing wrong. It is really amazing how you have pinpointed all my errors and show the correct way in how a player should move. Just by watching your videos, I had improved so much in my next game on court my partner thought I went and did some intense private training. I could get to the shuttle faster and could hit deeper clears, sharper smashes, which was something I could not do before.

  7. So thank you so so much for posting the videos and sharing your expertise for free. I will be looking out for your new videos and train myself to become a better player. Thank you!

  8. I am very pleased to know that my clips have helped your badminton and gave you more enjoyment. Thank you very much for letting me know. I shall continue to do so and wiull try to do it even better way. Lee


  10. Dear Dr Narayanan
    Thank you for your interest in getting some coaching from me. I would be very happy to train you. Answer to your questions:
    1. Yes you definatly can improve even if you are much older (you are very yooung)
    2. Yes I train all levels and all age. Important thing to me is not ability and not age, the will to improve and the desire to improve.
    3. I coach most of days. I think it would be more beneficial to have 1 to 1 coaching first. use [email protected]
