Badminton-Return of Low Service in Doubles

Badminton-Return of Low Service in Doubles

Return of Low Service I am going to show you return of low service in doubles posture the weight should be 60% to left foot here and about 40% on your right foot if you are right hander like this weight not center or not that way forward not too much forward then the flick is the problem the second point, two hands should go together forwarded rather than like this because it will take longer to the shuttle than this posture like this ready and then after when opponent serve the initial step should be the little push first before you go to the shuttle which is this ready like this and opponent served it then not just go in order to accelerate the speed of the movement that is needed that little bit of this so and then push rather than just go and then one more thing in posture if you serve to me, my posture should be little bit side ways rather than face to face chest square to the server, that is slow like this it will be faster little bit like that rather than like this that way so, step by step ready, if you are comfortable to stand here because you can move backward very fast in that case then you can move your left foot forward because you are already close to the net in this position to move your right foot forward it will take too long so its better to move this left foot but if you are club player, if you are not experienced so you are standing little bit backward here because of the flick then you must move right foot forward other wise you will always do the defensive return which is not good in doubles or mixed doubles so ready two feet together, serve came and then look racket go first and hit rather than look foot go and then racket go after the push, little push the racket must go first because of the flying time from the service line to here is very short, there is no time to make swing big swing so, this is 1 and that’s 2 and 3 here important thing to remember is cock your wrist so you hit flatter like this rather than you do that most of the shot will go to the net if you do that cock your wrist and tap it so shuttle will fly flat to opponent body or to the corner number 4 point if you do attack your role after this attack is incharge the net which is wider, there fore after this feet attack your feet should be side by side so you can move right and left faster if you attack like that and wait like this in this feet position not allow you to move right hand or left hand this feet position is very good to move forward or backward not to move side by side so, if I am doing the numbers this is 1 that’s 2 and 3 that’s how it should be ok once again two hands together your weight goes little bit left hand side and face, focus the opponent and serve on the way push, little push and the racket go, tap ready I will show you with shuttle ready here, center, and the corner when the shuttle comes to the center you are likely take backhand and this right hand side you would do forehand so, when are ready at the receiving service line your grip must be neutral neutral grip so, from neutral grip on the way to the shuttle cock let’s say backhand there, shuttle came to backhand side then on the way you change the grip backhand and hit neutral grip, service is coming to forehand side on the way you change to forehand grip and tap rather than you ready forehand like this and then shuttle comes to the backhand side here then you do that or you do that, you cannot do this so ready neutral and change grip now let’s say shuttle comes to backhand side then look here 1 change grip 2 3 ok lets have a look ok watch this please ok I will put the number ok still shuttle is coming backhand side 1 2 3 1 is look 2 is go 3 is ready backhand side please 1 2 3 1 2 3 watch my racket, racket goes first 1 2 3 rather than wrong one there is no push one more, wrong one yeah slow try to compare it please ok quick push now, after the shot hit – ready rather than no like this forehand corner same ready change grip cock the wrist and tap flat then there like this can you serve here please I will show you just the impact rather than or bigger swing yeah it goes out cock it and sharp tap yeah if you attack like that to the body that will be very effective now after 1 2 3 what you should try is which is intercept ok service, feed 2 more shuttles any side please ok now this is like real game what I am going to show you after attack the service what should you do ready ok look to enjoy game and be able to a winner of game player must be able to have confidence in returning service other wise difficult to get the point thank you for watching

  1. hello Mr.LEE
    in my village we do not have any badminton coach.
    so as kindly upload fitness training videos and wrist techniques

  2. Sure I will do that in near future. Lee

  3. great tips…. why dont we teach this in the UK from  a young age… lots of bad habits learnt and from county systerms. Is a really good break down of the technique.

  4. thanks started watching your videos coach lee. thank you so much. im just a beginner but i bought a 28lbs tension racket out of curiousity. and im having a hard time. can you pls suggest me any exercises or opinion on what to do. tnx

  5. Thank you Mr Lee. You are an excellent Teacher. 

  6. Its good to learn from you Mr. Lee. I am a biggener and its really fruitfull for me. Thanks

  7. you are a very good teacher. thank you so much.

  8. Nice!. just wanna ask coach if changing the strings can stress/affect the racket? mine is 28lbs and iwanna change it to 24lbs because im a beginner..

  9. Very nice, enjoyed watching the way coach explains it with useful tips.

  10. thank you so much mr.lee.i did'nt know how to return low service.its very usefull for can we return high lifted service properly..?hope for ur rply.thnk u

  11. Dear Coach Lee, thank you so much for this video. I like your explanation of the bounce-and-push-off step (step 1). In general (not just when receiving serve), what is the exact time we need to do this first step?  Slightly before the opponent hits the shuttle, or slightly after?

  12. Bài này Thầy dậy đánh cầu trên lưới, quan trọng là khi tiếp xúc cầu không được vẫy hết cổ tay mà phải ghìm lại để cầu khỏi "rúc lưới" và cầu đi ngang mép lưới với tốc độ nhanh – đối thủ rất sợ ! Tạm "dịch" nghĩa tiếng Việt như vậy để ai đó xem cho dễ, 


  14. Sir by far you are the best coach I have seen on the net. Your lessons are the best. You are agreat ambassador for the sport.Thank you.

  15.  i return possibly aggressively , but i have done too many mistakes recently ,by returning aggressively, so that i am afraid of returning as well as possible. thank you very much for the useful information.

  16. So much details. Thank you sir

  17. Thanks a lot. 감사합니다.

  18. Do you have a tip to help me react faster? 

  19. sir here i have one question…what position should we get in after serving in doublesi.e when we are serving

  20. Inspired to use this return technique. Very well explained. Thanks

  21. Dear Lee,
    In order to be able to intercept the opponent's return, should the player not take a step back from the T-junction? Otherwise, his/her field of vision will be narrow and the opponent will be able to drive to the side boxes, right? Same is explained in your net kill videos. Am I wrong?

  22. Sorry not the video "net kill" but in your video "net play" in level doubles.

  23. Thank you Mr Lee.   Very useful information..

  24. i love you and your dedication to the game mr. Lee

    makes me want to play better not for my sake but to emulate your enthusiasm and passion to badminton

  33. dear coach lee, 

    I play doubles in my university and I was never good in the front of the net. I usually would lift the shuttle but now I going  to try to tap the shuttle. Thank you so much.

  34. Whenever I am at the net, i always turn away or get hit in the face with a shuttle after a poor drop is killed. How can i overcome this fear or at least how can i make sure I will not get hit in the face? 

  35. Mr.lee I tried this but mostly shuttle hits net what should I do please help me to correct it

  36. Dear Coach Lee, I am a big fan of you and i have improved a lot from your coaching videos. However I am little weak in hitting smashes, backhand service/shots and with putting drops. Please provide me some useful tips to improve these both.

  59. Dear Lee , I have no words …. just waned to say "you are the best"
    i learned 100s of things from your videos ,


  60. Respected Lee Sir I am very thankful U Sir I am watching Ur videos in youtube. All are useful to me. pl. tell me in singles where is the base posture and what are the footwork .

    Bujji Babu.G

  61. That's brilliant tips Lee, Thanks a ton.

    I am an amateur player, not even the club player, I play just in my apartment. I was always swinging more and was not hitting parallel to ground, will try to avoid both mistakes from now on.

    I have three question.

    1) I see that you are standing the court where you receive the service for even points, I see that you are suggesting to stand just about one step behind the service line, but towards your right hand side empty area is more compare to your left hand side. You are almost standing close the the center line. In such case would it not become difficult if opponent serves in the right hand , almost on the right edge of court or lets say right side front corner and if the serve is too fast it wud be difficult to reach and perhaps we would end up playing the diffensive return

    2) How should we position ourself when taking the Odd point serve.. where should we leave more area towards left hand side or right hand side?

    3) In many case while returning the serve it isn;t possible to tap horizontally to ground and I end up lifting it, In such case where should we try to return.

  62. Absolutely fantastic! Very informative video. Thank you very much.

  63. Your way of learning was absolutely fantastic ,,, Sir

  64. As a very average club player ( i'm English), playing with much better players in Beijing, where I live, I actually have a good, effective serve. However, after watching this video I can clearly see where I can improve my service return AND my footwork.

    You are the best coach on the net !

    Thanks Coach Lee.

  65. Thank you so much, Mr. Lee.Very useful tips indeed!

  66. Coach Lee your training tips are easy to understand because it's step by step and very clear on important points and technique. More Power!!!!

  67. Coach Lee, if I cannot do a net kill after low serve like what you showed in the video, whats the alternative?

  68. hay quá tuyệt vời. thanks

  69. ????????????????????

  70. I wish u were my coach!

  71. Great video, I'm a beginner I used to stand near the service line and miss every flick serves , I think this video will help me

  72. dear sir, i am very pleased to watch your tutorial.


  74. super technique sr

  75. really appreciated your teachings and guides … thank you:)

  76. After a long search. Found the good coaching tips in YouTube. Thank you

  77. Rewatching this video again after watching other videos , I learn something new. Others watching – I urge you to watch all other videos because when you combine all the points, it solidifies your understanding of the techniques.

  78. Basic skills. Good for the beginners. Advanced technique maybe what all positions we need to place the shuttle, how to play a deceptive return etc.

  79. nc train coach love that

  80. double the speed. thank me later

  81. Mr. Lee, can you please demonstrate the posture and receive the shuttle on the other side.. If the opponent hits the shuttle to my left then, it would be a backhand lift /defense rather than a fast net shot as you showed in this video..

  82. You talk too much…avoid talking too mich n show in actions…and over repetitive..

  83. You talk too much…avoid talking too much n show in actions…and over repetitive..
