Badminton Lesson Plans (KS3 & KS4) includes:

To identify different areas and lines on the court. They should be able to use the forehand and backhand serves to begin a rally, and know the rules relating to serving, scoring points on serve, and the service areas. Students should be able to return the shuttle accurately using the overhead clear, drop, underhand clear and basic backhand stroke (as appropriate) and know  the advantages and disadvantages of each. Students should be able to link these shots to move their opponent around the court and outwitting them whilst knowing the difference between attacking and defensive shots. Students should know and understand the rules regarding contact of the net and the boundaries used in competitive singles play. Throughout the phases students are constantly asked how to outwit opponents; evaluate performances; analyse strengths and weaknesses; whilst developing, adapting and refining skills, strategies and tactics to produce high levels of performances and high quality techniques. Students should also understand the reasons for warming up at the start of the session and be able to name major muscles and demonstrate stretches that are appropriate to a badminton lesson.

To use the low forehand serve in conjunction with serves learned in year 7, to reduce the predictability of their play. They should be able to return a poor low serve with a push return and use the underhand clear as a way of clearing the shuttle to the rear of the opponent’s court. Students should be able to perform a technically correct smash and use the shot as a primary attacking shot when the shuttle has been lifted close to the net by the opponent. Students should be able to demonstrate a range of soft net shots, including more advanced shots that require the shuttle to be ‘tumbled’. By the end of the scheme students should be able to use a basic backhand shot to return shots played to their backhand side. Throughout the phases students are constantly asked how to outwit opponents; evaluate performances; analyse strengths and weaknesses; whilst developing, adapting and refining skills, strategies and tactics to produce high levels of performances and high quality techniques.  Students should be able to umpire a ½ court singles game and will all understand the importance of raising heart rate and stretching at the start of the session and be able to demonstrate stretches appropriate to badminton.

To use the backhand short serve (among others) to begin a rally and understand why the short serve is effective in doubles play. Students should be able to anticipate the kind of serve they are going to receive and be able to capitalise on poor serves with a push return to win the point, whilst trying to outwit opponent constantly. Students should be comfortable with shots on their backhand side and should be able to move opponents (and outwit) around the court with backhand and forehand drives down the tramlines and diagonally across court, and also backhand clears to the rear and the corners of the court. Students should know that the clear could be used to regain composure and position on court, by reducing the immediate speed of the game and giving time before it is returned. Students should be confident in playing rallies close in at the net, without having to lift the shuttle high into the opponent’s court. Throughout the phases students are constantly asked how to outwit opponents; evaluate performances; analyse strengths and weaknesses; whilst developing, adapting and refining skills, strategies and tactics to produce high levels of performances and high quality techniques.   By the end of the scheme students should know the basic rules needed for doubles and singles play and therefore be able to umpire competitive games accordingly.

To use advanced tactics and strategies in both singles and doubles competitive games. Throughout the phases students are constantly asked how to outwit opponents; evaluate performances; analyse strengths and weaknesses; whilst developing, adapting and refining skills, strategies and tactics to produce high levels of performances and high quality techniques.  They should be able to observe a partners performance, offer informed feedback, suggesting and helping in drills and practices that will lead to an improvement in their overall play, as well as leading a partner through a full warm up and cool down. Students should then be able to evaluate their coaching and playing methods and measure their success. The group should know the format and workings of a league competition and be able to construct, officiate and play in a competition of their own.
