In this video you will learn how to hit a backhand net kill.
The backhand net kill is an aggressive shot to end the rally when your opponent has hit a loose shot.
The three key steps are the preparation, the shot and the recovery.
Step 1 - The preparation. Use a backhand grip. When you see a loose shot, side-step forward toward the net. Lunge across on the racket foot toward the shuttle and extend the non racket arm to the side to help you balance.
Step 2 - The shot. The racket should be held in front and higher than the net. Tap the shuttle gently over the net using the forward momentum of the body.
Tighten the grip as you flick the shuttle. The action should be compact and controlled. When you strike the shuttle, there should be a slight pull back action to avoid hitting the net.
Make sure you do not use too much power as this will carry the shuttle much further than intended.
You could also end up hitting the net and thus losing the point.
Step 3 - The recovery. Get back to the ready position and be ready to return in case your opponent manages to return the shuttle.
Practice your backhand net kill until you manage hitting it close as close to the net as possible
Enjoy your game!
