Depending on what position you play, the skills are different. BUT, the equipment is basically the same, though some players may add a few of their own pieces of equipment due to past injuries, etc. The equipment includes: * Birdies (usually a full canister) * Badminton racket * Wrist brace (for those who have injured their wrists before) * Anti-inflammatory cream (to reduce any swelling that might occur from hitting too much and heating up the muscles during tournaments) * Sweatband (both for style and use to get sweat out of the eyes) * Uniform Different types of positions and their skills: * In doubles:
Forward player - these people that play these MUST be ready to respond to birdies being tipped over the net and also be ready to smash back or drive back the opposing players in order to open up an area to aim for to score
Back player - these people must be very strong in hitting because their position is in the back of the court - they must be able to catch the long-range hits and return it. These players also must be ready to help their partner if they miss getting the birdie when it comes over.
Split courts: each player must be ready to cover their side of the court, defined by the line that runs down the center of the court, defining the two different service areas.
* In singles: physical endurance is the most important - in singles, there ARE no partners, therefore, the player would have to cover an entire court by themselves. Their footwork must be exact, their technique and tactics great, because the moment they slip up in a game, they lose a point.
