OK forum members
 
I have a number of articles to write, which got me thinking…what would you like more information on? What would you like me to write about?
 
I have a competition to run soon just for forum members. Only forum members will be allowed to enter. I’m just working on how we’re going to structure this competition because I want to run something different. I’m not sure of the prize yet but it may be something very special and therefore only available to players who can travel to UK. So watch this space.
 
In the meantime, please send in your requests for content. Go on, take a bit of time and challenge me to write something that could be directly related to your current problems – I love a challenge!

Hi Paul, I would like to know more about Tactics, things to look out for in your opponents, What would you suggest I do if getting pinned down with low drives & smashes to your backhand.

Hello,

 

Honestly, I don't know if it's worth for Paul to write an article on the subject I'm proposing but I'll give a try.

 

It would be on the dives. I saw a lot of professionnal players diving to save a shuttle in the most desperate situations and I'm still wondering how they can stand up again to continue playing. I think it is as spectacular than the jump smash (but a little bit less than the backhand smash though Laugh).

 

Jonathan.

Jonathan, nice thought! Have to agree that falling over and getting back up and then winning the point is a pretty handy thing and looks good too. And as Clarke showed in the All Englands a few years ago, falling over and then staying down and hit the winning shot from the floor looks even more impressive!

 

But to be fair, I don't think this is something Paul could cover as it's not a skill as such. Well, I don't think it is. I think it's more to do with strength, using muscles that we perhaps don't use in every day life, to spring ourselves back up again. You need to be pretty fit and strong to be quick and agile as that and whilst we may think we are like that in our heads, the reality is, once we're down, we stay down! Laugh But I think that is partly due to shuttle watching and partly due to not spending hours in a gym and hours on court preparing for every possibility.

 

Would love to be wrong though, and I definitely like your thinking! Cool

I am trying to think of things to cover Paul, but it's harder than it sounds. Most of what I want to do will be covered in the notes from your badminton course and are not sharable on here.

 

I think tactics might be a popular one but harder to cover.

 

How about an article on fault solving. So like a chart you get in the back of manuals if your product isn't working properly.

 

Problem                                                 Remedy

Smashes going into the net                    Relax and use non racket hand to follow shuttle

Can't backhand clear                              Face back of the court and image hitting a brick wall at point of contact with shuttle

 

And so on, like a quick look up guide.

I think this troubleshoot guide would be a great addition to Pauls articles 🙂

 

Good call Peter

Guys
 
What are trying to do – kill me? It’s hard enough working with a player and seeing the fault, but to sit down and write scenarios is MASSIVE!
 
I do like the idea though and will give it serious thought once I’ve completed the notes for Peter and covered the other suggestions too. Oh, and I already have a list of topics to write about too. i just thought I’d give forum members a chance to have their say and therefore cover any burning isssues that haven’t been tackled on the forum already.
 
By the way, has anyone looked back at the number of topics we’ve covered on this forum?

I would like to see the “army training” part two 🙂

 

And I second Pauls opinion: writing that fix list is HUGE. literally means Paul has to try and condense decades of experience into a bullet point list. Impossible. However, perhaps if there was part of the forum dedicated to “problems” and “solutions” rather than discussion/someway of combining the two, then we could all chip in with problems we think could occur with certain shots, along with our own diagnosis or solution of some sort. Then we can tackle the problems one by one, rather than asking Paul for a huge list.

 

But then again, I would hope people would post that sort of thing anyway… if you struggle with a shot, and don't know whats wrong, then let the forum know! Someone will have an answer!

How about a series of articles similar to what you might find in a golf magazine–some of these magazines give tips if you shoot 100, 90, 80, etc. Perhaps do something from a badminton perspective–for beginners to get to the next level, you identify a few general problems beginners have (could be a combo of stroke techniques to tactics) and how to correct them. Similarly, there would be something for the intermediate player and advanced player.

I like that idea! I’ll defintely go with that although it will take some time to get my thoughts together.
 
Many thanks Terence.
