Multishuttle exercises are an important tool in developing Badminton players. Especially for double and mixed players in Badminton it could be an essential tool for working at higher speed to improve performance on court.

Multishuttle exercises are an important tool in developing Badminton players. Especially for double and mixed players in Badminton it could be an essential tool for working at higher speed to improve performance on court.

Multishuttle exercises could be a good method of training when the players are in transition from the learning phase to a more complex situation. Naturally one should go to a more realistic setup with “one-shuttle-exercises” but still for your best players in a youth or even senior setting it could be difficult to create the speed they need and have to cope with on tournaments if the level of the next best players is not sufficient enough.

On that point it is practical, if you can create multishuttle exercises that simulate specific situation that can occur in a Badminton double or Badminton mixed at the net. Exercise Nr.1 for example is “Killing at the net – left to right” – an exercise, where the net player is moved in the front court and still has to be high at the net an kill the shuttle.

Exercise Nr. 2 is “Backhand kill and forehand stick” – an exercise which practices to kill at the net and still be ready for the next shot or cover the next shot fast. This of course can also be done on the other side of the Badminton court.

Exercise Nr.3 is a combination of Nr.1 and Nr.2 – to kill both shuttle on the forehand and backhand site and still be ready for a lift or fast longline shot.

The first three exercises where mainly with a focus on rhythm and both stroke and footwork techniques – but when you look at good doubles or mixed players like Zhao Yunlei from China, Kien Keat Koo from Malaysia, Mathias Boe and Carsten Mogensen from Denmark or Birgit Michels from Germany (the latter three winning the London Grand Prix Gold in the last week) – high speed and a more open scenario has to be build up – this can also be done with multishuttle and will look like this:

Still a closed exercise but at far higher speed is exercise Nr.4 which is a combination of Nr.1 and Nr.2 but open to both sides – the player is move left to right and back and still has to manage to be ready for the next shot at the net.
 

Exercise Nr.5 is an open exercise – and really do not let the player be the limit of the speed – try as a coach to be as fast as you can and the player has to adapt to that speed.

Have fun working with and on your multi-shuttle exercises,
