In this video you will learn how to hit a forehand net kill.
The forehand 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 panhandle grip.
When you sight a loose shot, side-step forward toward the net. Lunge on the racket foot toward the shuttle and extend the non racket arm to the side to help you balance.
Step 2 - The shot. Tighten the grip as you flick the shuttle. It should be as high as possible so that the angle is sharp and the shuttle lands close to the net. The action should be compact and controlled. When you strike the shuttle, there should be a slight pull back action.
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. After the net kill get into the ready position and be prepared for the return in case your opponent manages to retrieve the shuttle.
Practice your forehand net kill until you manage hitting it close to the net.
Enjoy your game!
