Net shots: the basics

Home > Shots > Forecourt > Net shots > The basics

Edit page

Net shots are played from the front of the court, gently over the net into the front part of your opponent’s court.

  • Using a suitable grip, and taking the shuttle early
  • Taking the racket directly to the shuttle, instead of lifting up from underneath
  • Soft hands for control
  • Keeping the wrist movement minimal

Slight correction: I mention hairpin net at the end of this video, but we don’t actually have that content yet (it’s planned).
