Badminton Trainer is a specially designed app which can be used to help an athlete train for Badminton singles
The app will generate some random numbers. When it announces a number, the athlete must move quickly to the corresponding part of the court, as if to return to shot that was hit there. For example, the numbers might indicate:
1.left front corner (drop)
2.right front corner (drop)
3.left back corner (clear)
4.right back corner (clear)
5.left side (smash)
6.right side (smash)
The purpose of this randomised training to to train the athlete's preparation for movement in any direction. It trains the athlete to balance himself when in the ready position (known as the split step). Randomised footwork training has long been an essential part of a singles player's training. However, this app allows such training to be done without the help of a coach calling out random corners.
