Over the past few years, badminton has become a popular sport everyone wants to participate in. Whether it is at a professional competitive level or as a leisure activity, it is now a favourite amongst all age groups.
If you’re a beginner and want to enhance your skills, here is how you can achieve your goal.
Badminton requires you to be within reach of the shuttlecock within milliseconds no matter where you are on the court. Mastering your footwork is fundamental. Jogging or doing steps can help build leg muscle.
If you can see the shuttlecock but somehow miss hitting it, you must sharpen this skill. You can try playing a small-scale game such as table tennis to improve your hand-eye coordination. Train your brain to sync your thoughts with your body.
Grip your racquet
You must have a strong grip on your racquet otherwise it might fly out of your hand or you might hit the shuttlecock with the frame. Improve this skill by investing in a grip strengthener.
The theory is important too. Learn about the different types of shots, courts and rules by reading up on these online. The more you understand the sport, the easier it is when you’re playing it.
Time and practice
One cannot expect to become a professional overnight. If things aren’t going right, don’t give up. Practice makes perfect and over time, you too will master the sport.
Enhancing these skills can help you climb the ladder of success faster than you think.
