Jayvee Things you can do:
- Tape a competition (pref. one fast and furious rally) rewind then study the footwork
using the slow motion feature on the VCR.
- Do the drills. Let someone feed you lobs and drops alternately. This is tiring work so
keep your endurance up.
- You could also try practicing the lunge.

I would appreciate it very much if you can show me the steps to move
around the court quickly, at the moment I am having problem of not getting
back fast enough to return a deep and highloft-shot, after returning a drop
shot at the net. Thank you.
You are asking a very personal, difficult question for me to answer without
seeing you play. My best advice is to purchase a good book or manual on
badminton and try some of the recommended footwork patterns, and then see
which one works best for you. Without seeing you play, it is not possible
for me to advise you on the best way to move backwards.
Where do you live, and perhaps I will be able to help you at an up-coming
If you are interested in a book, just call the OBA at 416-426-7193 and ask
for Tereshka....tell her Gord sent you.
