Tips to Hit a Powerful Badminton Jump Smash

  1. Get into Position and Adopt the Forehand Grip.
  • Move quickly and get BEHIND the shuttle.
  • Stand firmly and maintain good body balance.
  • Ideally, your body should face sideways. Both your feet should also point towards the side of the court.
  • DO NOT tense your body muscles.Tensing your muscles will restrict the mobility of the muscles. Therefore you won’t be able to perform a maximum swing.

      2.Raise your Racket Arm and Non-Racket Arm

Stretch out your Racket Arm as far as possible. At the same time, raise your Non-Racket arm to counter the weight of your Racket Arm.

      3Jump into the Air and Timing

  •      Use your Racket Foot to push your body up into the air.
  •      Time your jump! Ideally, you want to start your swing at the peak of your jump.
  •      This should also be your highest contact point with the shuttle.  Since this is a jumping smash, getting the right timing depends on          how high you jump.
