In this video you will learn how to hit a forehand deceptive flick.
The forehand deceptive flick is used to trick the opponent by playing a flick shot in the rear court instead of a drop.
The three key steps are the preparation, the shot and the recovery.
Step - 1 The preparation. Use the forehand grip.
Start in the ready position. Shuffle forward and lunge on the racket foot toward the shuttle. Extend your non racket arm to help you balance.
Rotate the arm so that the palm faces upwards and drop the racket low
Step 2 - The shot. Get below the shuttle and snap the wrist at the last moment to generate power and more importantly to surprise and deceive your opponent. After striking the shuttle, there should be a pull-back action.
Step 3 - The Recovery. Once you have put the shuttle deep, push off with both legs and shuffle back and get back to the ready position.
Practice your deceptive flicks until you manage to bring your opponent toward the net and deceive him with a quick shot over their head.
Enjoy the game!
