6. Strategies

1. Singles

  • Make opponent move quickly by using different shots
  • Make shots to the corners
  • After making a shot, always come back to the center of the court
  • Make quick decisions (what kind of shot you are going to make and where to hit the birdie)
  • Change the pace regularly but unexpectedly
  • Overhead strokes must look the same
  • Long and deep serves work better

2. Doubles

  • Short serves are better
  • Target the space between opponents
  • When receiving, play aggressively toward the net
  • Should switch quickly from defense to offense and from offense to defense
  • When attacking, adopt a formation with one player in the front part of the court, and the other player towards the rear part of the court
  • When defending, adopt a side-by-side formation in order to cover the full width of the doubles court.
