Badminton Strategy

Even playing in the backyard, badminton can be a competitive game. People have different strategies for how they want to play and win. Some people like to hit the shuttlecock very softly over the net so that their opponent has to sprint to the net to return it. Other people like to hit the shuttle in the back corner and hope their opponent cannot reach it. Others like to slam it really hard into the ground on their opponent's side. Most games will have a combination of all these techniquies.
