Challenge 1: Balloon Tap

The aim is to find the right feeling for controlling the balloon instead of just trying to hit it hard, which is a good starting point for hitting the shuttlecock accurately with a racket. If you can do this exercise well, you could try this game using racket.

Challenge 2 – Backhand Short Serve

This is one of the basic skills of badminton. The key things to remembers is to have your racket point down, strike the shuttlecock from the hand and use a thumb grip.

The aim is to take you time and focus on your technique and hitting the target rather than rushing to score.
