0 Badminton exercise: how to move your feet

Step-close (Grice, 2008:5)
Shuffle step (Grice, 2008:5)

From the ready position, the nondominant foot is always the pivot foot and the dominant, or racket-hand foot, is the leading foot. Reaching for the shuttle with the dominant arm and leg saves time, and the subseguent push off or jump off of the dominant leg aids in a swift recovery. As yo move forward or backward, you must pivot and move, reaching  with the dominant leg as you also reach with your racket to intercept the shuttle. (see Figure 1)
Sashay step (Grice, 2008:6)
Three-step sequence (Grice, 2008:7)

Shuffle step

The shuffle step is executed primarily when moving forward toward the net or backward toward the non-dominant side. It is also optional approach used to move quickly to the backhand side of the backcourt. To move quickly to the net from the ready position, the nondominant leg swings forward at a diagonal either to the front right or the front left, depending on the desired direction. (see Figure 2)

Sashay step

From the ready position, your nondominant foot will be the pivot foot and the dominant, or racket-hand, foot will be the leading foot. Pivot and move forward or backward at a diagonal. Lead with the dominant leg as before, but do not shuffle or use the step close step. (see Figure 3)

Three-step sequence to return to mid-court

This acton allows you to move farther and faster to the net. Forehand and backhand returns require you to recover to midcourt using the same three-steps pattern as before: racket leg, other leg, racket leg. The scissoring action of your legs helps to propel you back to centercourt after your overhead returns from backcourt. The hips and shoulders rotate quickly as you throw the racket up to meet the oncoming shuttle. (see Figure 4)
