Pressure Drills
Once the movement patterns of the overhead clear have been established and your performance
of the skill has begun to move towards the automatic stage it is important to increase the
pressure to ensure the demands of practice are specific to your performance level and that
practice becomes increasingly more game like. Pressure can be gradually increased as your
level of performance increases. The chances of a skill becoming automatic are greatly
increased after pressure training.
Initially we used repetition pressure drills which required you to repeatedly perform overhead clears
while under pressure from two feeders. Pressure was increased by decreasing the time
interval between feeds forcing you to move to and from base quicker – reducing the time you
had to move into position.
As your performance improved we progressed to using combination pressure drills, which required
you to perform an overhead clear along with a net shot in pressured situations.

Automatic Stage
At the automatic stage the majority of subroutines have
become automatic. They have been grooved to muscle
memory. As a result, little attention is paid to them.
During the overhead clear this will mean that you track
the path of the shuttle, adopt a side on stance with your
weight on your back foot – transfer your weight forward,
impact with shuttle above racquet arm – bring racquet
down across body and recover to base.

As you are able to perform the subroutines of the
overhead clear automatically you are able to pay closer
attention to the flight path of the shuttle and where on
your opponents court the shuttle lands.
To ensure practice is specific to your skill level and realistic to the unpredictable nature
of badminton conditioned games are the most effective way of further refining your
overhead clear. Conditioned games can take various forms, often they are used to
provide one player with an advantage or rules are adapted to emphasis particular
skills.

Conditioned Games
Conditioned games are essentially adapted forms of the activity. They can
take various forms. Often they are used to provide an individual or team
with an advantage over their opponents, this makes achieving tasks easier.
Conditioned games may also involve certain adaptations to the rules of the
game to emphasise the particular skills that you have been working on
developing.
