Warm up (10 mins)- All Exercises will mirror moves performed in Match Play
Drills (30 mins) – All Drills are based on the essentials players need at World Class level but are taught at basic level using simple techniques.
The theme of the course will be to always get the racket to the shuttle as early as possible, as this will give the student the best opportunity to put their opponent under-pressure.
The importance of body posture and racket carriage will accelerate the student’s knowledge quickly so development should be quite rapid.
Drills will require the student to work within a team environment and outcomes will only be achieved through co-operation and communication between the students.
Games (20 mins) – These games will provide the student the opportunity to quickly implement the technique in a competitive situation.
