With badminton SAISA fast approaching, we’re all training hard. Usually, badminton starts out with a demonstration of various techniques, by our coach, Mr. Pradeep, such as a drop shot or a smash. We then work on our skills in these techniques until we have warmed up, and are ready to play against each other. It’s really helpful to practice our skills, as one of my goals for the sport is to improve my ‘smash’ technique.
The part of practice I enjoy most however, is the matches we play against each other – especially when they are so intense and competitive that the ‘match point’ basically lasts forever! Additionally, these matches give me more experience and a better eye for strategy, and wear to aim my shots in order to make them hard to hit back.
I’m looking forward to the progress I will make as the SAISA season approaches.
