Badminton/Singles Section 1: Identify the important skills/techniques and fitness components needed for participation in this position/role and explain why they are important. Badminton has many vital skills, techniques and fitness components needed for participation in a singles match. First of all being that you must have good hand eye coordination. Which would enable various parts of the body to combine in producing a desired movement or sequence of movements. This occurs as a result of interaction between the body's movement and its nervous system. The ability to produce co-ordinated movement is essential for successful performance in sporting skills. For example in badminton you need each part of your body to move in a particular way at a specific time to hit the shuttle cock back successfully and efficiently to where you want it. (Drop shot, Smash shot etc) Also another factor needed is balance. In many sports and games, the concept of balance relates to our ability to keep our center of mass over our support. An example is of a badminton player as he/she must be able to move in any direction in order to return an opponent's shot and must therefore be in a balanced position to do so. Another important factor is agility. Which involves the performer to move in a controlled way and to change direction, turn, stop and start quickly again. As in badminton you have to be 'quick-footed'. Which is the ability to adjust the position of the body quickly and in the correct way that is valuable to all participants in physical activities. ...read more.


In order to get to the shuttlecock quickly and constantly without getting tired. Section3: Identify and describe in detail the weakness of the player/participant and the affects these have on performance. I show some weakness in attacking in badminton when smashing the shuttlecock to the opponent to the back of the court it sometimes goes out of bounds. I show a limited amount of tactical awareness. As I am aware for where to go as the opponent hits the shuttlecock back. But don't always go to where is needed in order to hit the shuttlecock back in a way that the opponent can't smash it. The movement around the court is fine not clumsy or slow but may sometimes not be fast enough. I am sure that my footwork is fine as well as my arm action as hitting the shuttlecock and my body position is fine in order to hit the shuttlecock. I only play with my right hand as I am not as coordinated with my left hand and may miss the shuttlecock. My timing for when to hit the shuttlecock is good as I most of the time manage to hit it. My work rate in order to play badminton is ok, as effort is low. The fit components of mine including stamina and speed are reasonablely good. Section 5: Outline the six-week training and practice programme that could be used to improve overall performance. This 6-week training and practice programme is one to improve overall fitness and improve overall badminton performance. ...read more.


Day 7: Recovery F- Frequency of activity- how often we should exercise. For example if you just want to stay healthy you should exercise for at least twenty minutes twice a week. After each hard training session I should give my body at least 24 hours rest before I exercise again. I- Intensity of activity- how hard I should exercise? T- Time of activity- how long I am going to exercise. Aerobic training sessions tend to last for 20 minutes or longer where as strength training sessions are generally shorter and less sustained. T- Type of activity- what exercise I should use. This means that I will have to decide how often every week I will have to train and how often I will train on each of the two areas stamina and speed. I will also have to make sure that I am training at the right intensity it will be important to make modifications to my plan while I am doing it if I feel that I am not being pushed hard. Section 6: Identify some of the positive and negative factors that may affect performance. Having a reasonable good height of about 5'11 is good in badminton, as the shuttlecock wouldn't go over you as easily then if you were 5'1. The best build for badminton would be a slender one. Meaning the body type would be an ectomorph one, which is a slightly built person narrow hips and shoulder and usually long limbs making them quite tall. Making them agile. The preferred fibre type for badminton would be slow-twitch fibres. As it helps for long-term endurance activites. ...read more.
