Badminton: Hit From High Principle
Dick Moss, Editor, Physical Education Update.com

While strength, power and technique are important in badminton, sometimes it's adherence to a few key principles that makes the most difference in your level of play.

Here's one such principal - and it's a simple one.

Hit it High Principle
Hit the incoming shuttle as high as possible - before it has the time to drop.

The higher you hit the shuttle, the sharper the downward angle you can achieve and the more difficult the shot will be to return.

Hitting the shuttle high in its trajectory also forces you to stretch upwards to hit, which allows you to generate more power when you clear or smash.

A simple principle. Hit the shuttle high!
