Badminton: How to Return the Flick Serve

Badminton: How to Return the Flick Serve

in this video we’re gonna talk about the
flick serve return so in doubles when we want to return the shuttle standing here
we want to of course cover the net and attack the net but sometimes the
opponent does a flick serve and we still want to reach the shuttle and still be
able to force the offense so the first thing we want to focus on is the start
position we want to lean forward so we can reach a potential short service if
the serve is the flick serve we want to travel to the back court as fast as
possible so the first thing we want to focus on is to transfer the weight from
the front leg to the back leg after the transfer of the weight we want
to head into a fast side shuffle and then end with a China jump or scissor
jump so because we don’t have a lot of time to execute this shot we want to use
our forearm rotation right after the backswing so like this and hit okay we
don’t have a lot of time to do a big motion here when we land we want to still aim to be
in balance but if we’re not able to still be in balance it’s okay because we
have a doubles partner and he or she is going to cover the net let’s also talk about where we can hit
the shuttle if I do a cross shot the court would be wide open so we want
to aim for straight shots maybe in the middle or straight down the line that
would be preferable thanks for watching guys hope you
enjoyed it if you have any questions or comments leave them below will
appreciate that see you in the next video Thanks

  1. yeayuuuuh you can use hendra technique too (but it can dislocated your shoulder)

  2. Long Time No See (again)

  3. thanks for uploading btw (i waiting for this and sidek )

  4. I am left handed.. How I will react to flick serve if someone flicks on my back hand side..??

  5. What's your racket?

  6. 2:00 is that rotation edited?

  7. Awesome video. Good tip re leaning forward and quick swing / pronation of forearm only

  8. What if the serve is wide to the tramline? The distance you have to cover is greater plus you have to move diagonally and may have to go around the head as well.

  9. Of course a cross attack is always risky in doubles, but in flick serve i think it's not too bad. The reason is that the server might not be 100% ready for a defence because he/she will have to move a bit backwards so his/hers defence might be weak. What do you think about that?
    Great video as always, keep it up!!

  27. Is this starting position is good for short serve also?


  29. Awesome techniques to return ☺☺☺??????

  30. Is that a Thruster F? Why is it white on the top of your racket? Nice video as always.

  31. Thanks coach Rasmus, much help me.. thanks

  32. Nice video! As a female mixed doubles player I get the flick serve a lot as women tend to have a harder time returning it. So I practice a lot with my coach, but always good to watch videos and hear from other coaches as well. (Also I train and play in China where I do everything in Chinese, but of course English is much easier for me to understand! haha. So thanks for doing these in English! 😛 )

  33. I still have an important question to ask you guys. How to avoid hitting in frame during shots? Plzz help me

  34. Thank you for the video ☺️
    Wondering if your partner does a flick serve – where should you position yourself ?

  35. are you using the victor thruster falcon? 4ug5? how is it? im currently using the tk9900 4ug5 and i love it. wondering if i should add the tk falcon to my collection

  36. You guys have a video on the China smash/jump?

  37. very useful! Thanks so much bro, this is the problem I still struggle with

  38. Thank you for making this video! I'll try to reach flick serves.

  39. I would like to know what is the white tape that on your TK-F and how it works 0.0

  40. And no doubt, Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo's flick serve is definitely one of the best. Many players try to learn his flick serve, so it's very properly nice to learn that flick serve return using these video.


  41. Godt lavet Rasmus hilsen Villum og skovbakken U13 og U15

  42. Are you national player?

  43. Your landing looks so intense.Do you have any ankle pain

  44. Hey Badminton Famly!
    How about Q&A video?
    Try to announce the famly to use hastags for questions like stuff regarding badminton and cover those Q&A in new video.
    Btw enjoyed every single video!
    Love ?

  45. Awesome video and great demonstration.
    May I know what if the flick serve is served to the backhand side?

  46. Guys, a huge thank you for a great channel. I think I've watched almost all of the single videos on this channel along with technique ones and they are amazing. Keep up the great work. Have you considered making a video on general strategy in singles (and doubles)? I think a lot of low level players like me would be interested in how to approach the tactical aspect of the game from the very basics and I cant find quality content like that you on youtube.For example, what is your main goal when returning a serve? If you hit a longer shot, what is your aim of that shot? If you make a short one, what position does that put you into? Just the basics in that aspect, I think it would help a lot of people improve.

    Keep up the great work guys! Peace

  47. Can you plzz say some basic exercise to increase speed in movements

  48. Sir make video on
    How to smash shuttle with jumping?

  49. Eh… Theres a "dirty" flick serve that i wish you could have shared, the flick thats almost flat like a drive and its targetted at the recievers overhead.

  50. Only watching the video & learning the tricks isn't good enough !! you'll need a strong pair of legs to execute that shot ! See,the receiver has made one step behind with footwork and then the most of the space was covered by one big jump backwards.Now ppl know the technique,they need to know how to strengthen legs(gyms & exercise needed)! Hope to see a video on that too…

  51. Please make a video for exercise of wrist for a stronger and efficient movement of wrist. Whoever agrees like this comment.

  52. Can I know what tension u use

  53. Thanks for your tips!!! Am from Mauritius ?? start playing in late ages and amateur but always watch for your tips,it the best for me,short video,less time to spend but a lot of understanding!!! A very thanks!!!????

  54. Would be great to see some talk about strategies on your channel for both doubles and singles. Positioning relative to partner, setting shots, movement, etc. Things like how you mentioned cross shot will open court. Thanks.

  55. i want to use your name for my badm t shirt ,because i love your game play,please

  56. What about the foot position which one is better? To use like you or facing parallel with the serve line? Just ask cos my coach who was an int. top player in France say the parallel stand is better as it use more muscle for movement.

  57. Do you land in forefoot ?

  58. Good video bro. Thanks. Can you post the video for jump smash for as I beginner.

  59. would u like to teach me.

  60. waiting 4 ur reply

  61. Hi! In xd when the girl answers the flick serve the short defence is it covered by the guy?
    could she play cross in front of the male player? Have
    U any suggestion?


  62. How to handal the grip

  63. What to do if the service is to your back hand? I'm always too slow or when I turn I see the shuttle falls in.

  64. what about for single players?

  65. Just one word "AWESOME" ❤❤❤

  66. Plz make a video how to do a flik serve

  67. Kevin Sanjaya vs you

  68. Osm shorts and return back

  69. Hey Rasmus&Thomas, since the shuttle travel is quite long and the chest remains open I'm quite fine with this one. I struggle a LOT more with the flick serves aimed at court center on the even/right side and on the outer side on the odd side. Could you please advise ?

  70. Are you from Denmark sir,you accent like this

  71. Great video as my short service defense is good but need tips to play against flick serve. Now I have something to practice on Tuesday.
