In this video you will learn how to hit a backhand overhead drop shot.

The backhand overhead drop shot is hit from the rear court to the opponent's forecourt.

It is a shot that is disguised to surprise the opponent who is expecting a smash or a clear.

The three key steps are the preparation, the shot and the recovery.

Step 1 - The preparation.

Use a backhand grip.

Start in the ready position.

Take the non racket leg back and twist the body sideways.

The feet should be pointing diagonally toward the side-line.

Shuffle back and get behind the shuttle.

Step 2 - The shot.

Tighten your grip and swing the racket behind the back with the head pointing downward.

Hit the shuttle gently and smoothly.

You do not need much power to make it travel over the net.

Keep your arm movement compact and controlled, rotate the elbow and snap the wrist.

Remember the impact should be high and a little ahead of the racket shoulder.

Step 3 - The recovery.

Shuffle back to the ready position at the middle of the court.

Practice your overhead drop until you manage to hit it consistently into the forecourt.

Enjoy the game! .
