The strategy in badminton doubles for men and women (Part 2)

2. Receive serve

Female players

If receiving a short serve, you should return the net at the corner of the net closest to you, as close as possible, or return to the opponent who has delivered your serve.

If receiving a long serve, smash the shuttle towards the opponent’s female player or towards the side.

After returning the bridge, the female player must follow her demand curve, and head towards the net, the T-zone area, as soon as possible to stabilize the squad.

Male players

If receiving a short serve, return the net at the corner of the net closest to the player. Help create the best conditions for his teammates to dominate the net control and control the retaliation in the net area.

If receiving a long serve, smash the shuttle towards the opponent or side.

Depending on the opponent’s formation in the badminton doubles match, there may be different fighting styles. Two half-yard bumps will make it difficult for the opponent if the opponent is in the top and bottom line. Direct smashes will make it difficult for the opponent if the opponent is in a two-sided formation.

3. When attacking

Female players

Always stick to the net area in order to catch all the net shots, and intercept as much as possible the opponent’s cross-jibs. Female players must limit as much as possible to get the lift.

Always in front and hind legs, and move smoothly according to the situation of the bridge. The racket must always be held high above the head and on the edge of the net and forward in the position to be ready to hit the ball at the highest possible position when it has passed through the net.

When having to counter the cross just past the net, the female player should be slightly bent to lower her body so that she can hit the opponent’s ball with her racket position still above her head.

Try to hit the plugging line as much as possible, as far from the opponent’s arm as possible, or as much as possible disturbing the opponent’s formation. Do not look back to see how your teammates are fighting. Instead, the female player should watch her opponent’s movement and listen for her teammates’ calls from behind.
