Four Reasons Why you shouldn't hold your racket up always

In badminton coaching, coaches often say "hold your racket up!" This means they want players to hold their racket high. But is this always the best advice? Let's look closer at why this might not be the right thing to do all the time.

Why "Hold Your Racket Up" Isn't Always Right

Many players think raising their racket straight up next to their ear is the best way to follow this advice. But this can actually cause problems. It makes your arm tense, which means you can't move as easily or hit the shuttle with power. Plus, if your opponent hits the shuttle low, you have to bring your arm down a lot, which wastes time and makes you hit the shuttle later. Instead, keeping your racket in a relaxed, slightly bent position in front of you allows for quicker reactions and smoother movements.

Learning from the Pros: Changing Racket Positioning

 Even though coaches often say "hold your racket up," professional players often keep their racket lower, especially during rallies and at the net. They do this because it helps them stay relaxed and ready to move fast. This way, they can hide gaps in their court coverage from their opponents and make stronger, more intimidating shots. Pros only lift their racket up just before they hit the shuttle, showing that timing is important in racket positioning. This shows that there's no one-size-fits-all approach, and players should adjust based on their own strengths and style.

When should you hold your Racket Up?

Knowing when to keep your racket up depends on many things, like how fast you can react, where you are on the court, and what your opponent is doing. For example, if you expect a shot above net height, it's good to have your elbow slightly out in a relaxed position. At the net or mid-court, keeping your arm in a comfortable position lets you move quickly. But in the rear court, holding your racket too high can make it hard to prepare for overhead shots. Each player is different, so it's important for coaches to consider each player's unique strengths and adjust their advice accordingly.

Recognizing Everyone's Strengths

Coaches need to remember that not every player is the same. Some players might need to keep their racket up more often because they're shorter, while taller players might want to keep it lower to generate more power. By understanding each player's strengths and style, coaches can give better advice that helps players improve and perform their best.

In summary, while "hold your racket up" is common advice in badminton coaching, it's not always the best approach. By considering individual needs, learning from professionals, and adjusting advice accordingly, players can improve their game and be more adaptable on the court.
