Badminton-Helping the Rear Court Player in Doubles

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. This looks like a hard one to put into practice :-/

  2. Hi Coach Lee. Thanks for sharing this video. This helps me a lot in improving my play and very helpful as I can support and reach the three spots now with lesser foot movement. It made me feel confident to play with players weaker than me and made me stronger as an individual player.

  3. I am very pleased to know it helped you. Thank you very much for posting your comment. Lee

  4. Great video!
    Thank you

  5. As usual amazing….

  6. Coach thank you very much for this video, I feel helpless a lot of times when I am in front and my partner is getting pushed from left to right in the rear, now I know what I can do to help him better.
    Takes a lot of practice to get this right with my partner but atleast know we know how to work out this problem, thank you very much again.

  7. I hope it works for you. I am very pleased to know you like this clip. Thank you. Lee

  8. Hello Coach Lee and thanks for your video !
    It will really help me and my partner.
    But I have a question : If my partner is late to a corner and does a dropshot instead of a smash, what should i do?
    I feel like my opponents have more options of shots, especially tighter net shots, and I end up covering the net and not helping my partner…
    Thank you !

  9. It is depending how early and late your opponent is taking. SWame time depending on your partner position and ability you could do both. If he is late and not been able to cover the rear court then you should ready to cover the rear court too. It is difficult me to say what you sould do. You have options and you are the one have to choose. Lee

  10. Thank you for your answer Coach Lee.

  11. You are very welcome. Lee

  12. Thanks for this video, coach.  When I am playing in a mixed doubles partnership, a lot of times the opponents will drive my partner to the far corners, and I'm not sure where exactly to move.  I will practice your instructions this week at the gym.  Thanks again!
