Badminton Service TechniqueTags: Serve/Service Beginner Xiao Jie Complete Badminton Training
Before our beginner trainee completes his serve, his body movement already tells his opponent what kind of serve to expect. Coach Xiao Jie lists out the checkpoints for a proper serve (assuming right-handed player).
- Whether serving from the left or right side of the court, your left shoulder must be pointing towards the net.
- The rear and front feet should be about shoulder width apart forming a 'T' with the front toe pointing towards the net.
- Before serving, your center of gravity is on the rear leg.
- As the shuttle is released, shift your body forward and rotate your waist leading the right arm to the shuttle.
- The service action must be consistent, whether for a high, short, or a mid-height serve. This effectively disguises the serve and keeps your opponent guessing.
