Doubles is an extremely fast game in badminton. The game requires competent skills, a great serve and excellent positioning.

Watching intermediate standard badminton highlights the lack of understanding in doubles positioning at this level. In many cases, this is THE critical piece of the game that results in constant loss of points.

My aim with this first video is to help you grasp the basic positioning you need to adopt in your games of doubles.
