I am trying very hard to improve my lunge at the net on the forehand side. I am trying to take everything at net height and also making a slight slice to the right (I am right handed). That is where I am finding dificulty, maybe my wrist isnt flexible enough
Anyone got any suggestions or maybe I am doing it all wrong

Are you attempting an ordinary or spinning net shot.

It seems you are attempting a “in to out” shot presuming it is a forehand.
This is the more difficult to do.
Why not start with “out to in” and master that first.
Key points are:Relaxed basic grip, wrist above racket head, change to thumb for BH.
Start shot outside shuttle line arc under shuttle and follow through. try to be as smooth as you can. Jerky shots loose control.
Practice with a good hand feed.

Good luck

This is one of the worst videos I’ve seen to teach this shot. It’s a shame because BWF usually present decent videos. The footage is too short. That said all of the key points are covered.

Playing the in to out slice is a touch more difficult. Preparation is similar and in essence the shot is played opposite to the instruction in the video.

Fair comment on the video Paul. It was the only one I could find and it does at least give a guide to a shot that’s quite difficult to describe.
Maybe you could do one for the Coaching Club. I’m sure it would go down well.
Looking forward to the new videos.
