Summary: Badminton: Steps to Success offers 10 easy-to-follow steps designed to help players learn and practice key skills. The book features 83 drills that develop players' skills. The drills come with performance goals and a list of key points to remember when executing each drill. Plus, many include instructions for increasing or decreasing the level of difficulty. Each step is an easy transition from the one before. The first steps--racquet handling, serving, and
overhead strokes--provide a solid foundation for the more sophisticated strokes and strategies that follow. As players progress, they'll learn to execute more difficult techniques - drop shots, smashes, and drives. By studying the book's 112 illustrations and following the simple instructions, readers will learn:
  • Why each skill or concept is important;
  • How to analyze and correct common errors;
  • How to practice each skill in a realistic way;
  • Proper racquet handling, position, and footwork;
  • The mechanics for five basic serves (long serve, forehand and backhand short serves, drive serve, and flick serve); and
  • Six basic strokes (overhead, clear, drop shot, smash, drive, and around the head).
