Analysis of Performance - Badminton.

Extracts from this document...


Analysis of Performance Badminton Rules and Laws: R) At the start of a badminton game, the server must start in the right hand service box and serve diagonally across the court to the left service box. R) The server must be behind the line when serving otherwise it is a foul. L) All players must stand still as the serve is being played and acknowledge that they are ready. During the start of a game, if the server misses the shuttle when swinging or the shuttle hits a part of their body, it is classed as a serve and therefore the serve is over and moves on to either the players partner or opponent. If a player touches the net with their racquet or any part of their body during a point playing rally then; the player who served at the start of the rally loses the serve, or, a point is awarded to the server if the player who received at the start of the rally touches the net. In men's singles and men's doubles, 15 points wins a game. However, if the score reaches 14-14, the side which first reached 14 can choose either to play to 15, or to set the game to 17 points. The final score will reflect the sum of the points won before setting plus the points gained in setting. Scoring in women's singles, women's doubles and mixed doubles is slightly different. ...read more.


There are very few tactics that you can employ to overcome a stronger player apart from playing as well as is physically possible and to concentrate on doing the simple things and playing your own game. Trying to move the opponent around the court and making it hard for them. There is no benefit in playing flashy shots as the opponent will be able to return them or that you won't be able to pull them off. Principles of attack. Recognising Strengths and Weaknesses If you were to look at a player at the net, he/she has to have fast reactions and a good control of their racquet strength. They must also have good awareness and be able to predict where the shuttle is going and if they are able to get to it. A good technique is also important. In badminton, there are three very important things technique, timing and control. You can have power but it is useless without the correct technique. Timing is also important as you can have a good technique but completely miss the shuttlecock. Without control, you will never be able to place the shuttle or have any control over where it goes. Planning, Practices and Training A typical training session for badminton would consist of; cardio-vascular and muscular endurance training, agility work and racquet work. ...read more.


Use similar arm motions to a smash or overhead clear but use little wrist rotation. Contact shuttle farther ahead of body than you would with a overhead clear. When bringing through the racquet, start with pace but slow just before making contact with the shuttle. When contacting the shuttle slice across it slightly to take some of the pace off it and to make it drop faster (N.B. when doing this a little more pace is needed than a normal drop). The shuttle should land as close to net as possible. Forehand Overhead Clear Turn to side so you are parallel with the tram lines with your non-racquet foot facing the net. Begin with your weight on your back foot and shift weight to forward foot on contact with the shuttle. Take the racquet and put it so the head is scratching your back. With your non-racquet arm reach up to the shuttle for guidance. Bring the racquet overhead and contact the shuttle at the highest possible point (N.B. that the racket head is pointing slightly upwards - thus hitting the shuttle high to the rear court) Use your full body to gain maximum power and combine your shot with a strong turn of your hip and wrist action at the very end of the shot. Profit by the basic forearm turn as this will accelerate the shuttle explosively. Follow through and continue action of the wrist and forearm powerfully downward. ?? ?? ?? ??

    At the same time, ironically, the most effective way to maintain this system of polar opposition, which always favors the dominant party, is to figure its collapse--in particular, to depict the Other as potentially similar, the outlaw-as-inlaw. The roots of this strategy of threatening proximity lie in patristic thought.
