How to Do a Forehand Drive | Badminton Lessons


Another very useful shot in badminton is the
forehand drive shot, which is essentially a very flat and offensive shot. It is very useful if the shuttle is a little
bit too low to smash. But yet, you don’t want to raise the shuttle
or lift the shuttle. A couple of ways to hit the drive is to hit
it away from your opponent. Or equally as effective, you can hit it directly
to your opponent’s body, also making it very awkward for him to return the shuttle. In order to hit the drive, you’re going to
have to bend your knees as usual and keep the racquet in front of you in a somewhat
neutral position. And it’s important to maintain a neutral position
because the shuttle could come to you in either direction, either your backhand or your forehand
and it’s a very rapid shot, so you have to react very quickly. This. This. This. Like this. The forehand or backhand drive is a very fast-paced
shot, one in which the shuttle does not go very far above the net. This makes it very difficult for your opponent
to smash the shuttle and hence, it is considered to be a fairly attacking, offensive shot. That’s your basic forehand backhand drive
shot.
