The aim is to improve the drop shot technique. Just 2 players are needed for this exercise. Player 1 starts near the service line on one side of the court with a few shuttles close by. Player 2 is on the opposite side of the net near the mid court area.

Player 1 hits a high, deep serve in the direction of player 2, player 2 then has to perform a drop shot and try and get it to land before the short service line in player 1's court.

Have 10 attempts then swap roles. Get a point each time the shuttle lands between the short service line and the net.

Progressions:

  • Hit backhand drops
  • Make it into a game with normal scoring, the only guidelines are that a high serve must be hit to start each rally and the return must be a drop shot. After that anything goes.

Coaching Points:

  • Make sure grip, footwork and swing are correct.
