When start playing badminton, almost all of us find it very difficult to hit shuttlecocks from rearcourt to rearcourt in backhand position. A lot of badminton players are very impressed by Taufik’s backhand techniques. He uses his backhand almost like his forehand to clear, drop and smash. He is the best player in badminton backhand smash. Watch the video and be amazed. 

So what is the right tricks/techniques in playing badminton backhand shots? Well, have a go with the following steps.

Position behind the shuttlecock: starting from the centre of the badminton court, use 2 or 3 steps to reach behind the shuttlecock. 2 steps: turn to the left and start from left foot with a small step. 3 steps: turn to the left and start from the right foot.

Preparation: relax your right arm and shoulder, use pronation to withdraw badminton racket close to your waist in order to create maximum space for racket movement before hitting the shuttlecock. 

Hitting: move your elbow upward first, then use supination (forearm rotating outward) to swing racket behind shuttlecock when the shuttlecock is just on the top right position. Your right foot should land the court when hitting while holding racket tightly. This would help generating the power, the balance and also in retreating back to the centre of badminton court. The hitting force is generated mainly by 

  • Swing of forearm
  • Supination of forearm
  • Squeezing of fingers 

Key elements: position behind the badminton shuttlecock, racket speed created by the above three parts, and land your right foot when hitting the shuttlecock. 

Training: use a tennis racket to train your backhand swing. Or you could use your badminton racket with a racket top case. If possible, hang a badminton shuttlecock in around 2.5 meters high and try footwork together with backhand shots. 

Watch the video coaching session by Xiao Jie for more details. The rest is to try out the above steps. It may take sometime for you to get the timing right. I am sure that your friends would be amazed by how much you have improved your backhand shots.
