You can play or practice badminton almost anywhere.
Like most sports, badminton is more fun when competitors can play the game with reasonable skill. Good badminton players also receive more exercise because they make fewer mistakes, so rallies last longer. Teach your students, teammates or children to improve their badminton skills by running them through some basic drills.1.
Place four targets, such as boxes or buckets, in the corners of one service box. Position players in the opposite, diagonal service box and have them take 20 serves apiece, aiming five at each target.2.
Practice hand-eye coordination by having a player hold a racket horizontally, with the player's palm facing up. Have the player hit a shuttle straight up about 1 to 3 feet, then continue hitting it each time it descends. Perform the drill for 30 seconds, then have the player repeat the drill with his palm facing down.3.
Work on players' reaction times by setting two players on opposite sides of the net, one with a shuttle and the other lying on the court. Have one player serve the shuttle and then immediately lie on the court. The opposite player rises quickly from the court to return the shuttle, then lies back down. Continue the pattern for five minutes. Have players use a variety of basic shots such as forehands, backhands, overheads and volleys.4.
Set up a doubles drill by positioning two players on each side of the net. Have the players begin a rally. The first player to make a mistake leaves the court and is replaced by another player. Continue the pattern until all of your players receive adequate time on the court.5.
Practice rallying by placing two players on the same side of the court and having them hit the shuttle back and forth without letting it touch the floor. As the players progress, place them on opposite sides of the court so the shots must clear the net.
