5 Tips To Prevent Injury In Badminton

If you are searching for an outdoor badminton kit, then here ends your search. This is a kit which provides you with all your needs to play an outdoor badminton match. This kit helps to set your own match starting from the net to the rackets. This kit contains four highly durable badminton rackets made of tempered steel. These Rackets are very much weightless but you should never guess its strength with its weight since its strength is multifold times its weight. This is the special light weight collection. The throat of the racket provides high strength and stiffness to the racket. This also helps to soften the impact on the racket.

First of all, you have to decide the usage of the badminton set. Are you using it for playing at a club, school or for competitive purposes? A cheaper set would be sufficient if it is for school or casual play. The rackets recommended for such usage would be made of steel or light aluminum. But if you are playing in competitions or tournaments, then you will need a carbon-fiber racket which is the lightest of them all and yet maintain its strength. A complete set should consist of two to four rackets, some shuttlecocks and a net. Usually, it also comes with basic directions of the game.

If the ball is too low for a smash, you can use a drive instead. The drive shot moves horizontally, rather than arching upward. The shuttle would just skim the top of the net, moving either diagonally across the court or straight from your position. You’re trying to get the shuttle behind your opponent, making it difficult for them to return with a good shot.

4) Finally, from a lower mid court position, this last option for you needs a high level of hand skill to pull it off. Let’s say you’re picking up the shuttle low on your forehand side. Open the racket face as though you were playing the shuttle to the net on the forehand side. At the last second, move the hand, close the racket face and inject some pace into the shuttle and send it cross court to the net. Your opponent will anticipate the straight return and move towards this area on the court. It is very hard to suddenly change direction and cover a fast cross court reply.

A good badminton tactic at any standard is to mix up the pace sufficiently to break down this pattern therefore keeping your opponents guessing and not being able to settle into their rhythm.

A badminton racket needs its string. The tension of the string affects the velocity and impact of the shuttle when struck. Therefore, the tighter the string is tied onto the racket, the better as its tension increases. Another item that is essential to the game is the shuttlecock. The shuttles in the past were made out of feather which is the same ones used in all major tournaments. Now however, shuttles are also available in plastic form. It has become popular as it can be used for a long period of time. Feathers, on the other hand, must be changed very often as they wear out faster. Although a plastic shuttle may sound good to you, there is a vast difference in feel as they are heavier when compared to the feathered shuttles.

As an example i have looked at the balance and weight specifications for the most popular badminton manufacturer, Yonex. Not one Yonex model has a head light balance, many of them are head heavy such as the muscle power series, whilst the nanospeed series appears to be slightly head heavy. What makes these rackets even worse for injury is that many of them have stiff frames, which increases vibration.

This article is not meant to be a complete checklist of ways to improve the power of your badminton smash. I’ve chosen my “big three” because they are relatively easy for you to check for yourself when you haven’t the luxury of working with a coach.
