What is a drive in badminton?

A drive in badminton is typically a flat, fast shot to the back of the court. However, there are variants of the shot; such as a cross court drive, requiring the head of the racquet to be at an angle - still flat and fast, but going in a different direction. Cross court drives are very useful in doubles when your opponents are smashing down the line and you manage to take the shuttle early - if you whip the shuttlecock cross-court you can get it past the front player to the far corner, away from the rear-court player, forcing them to lift and giving you the attack.

How do you win the game in volleyball?

The aim of the game is to hit the volleyball over the net into the opponents half of the court with such force that they cannot prevent it from hitting the ground. The maximum number of touches per play is three. You will also have to prevent the ball from grounding in your half of the court. However, if the ball lands outside the court, the team that originally hit it will give a point to the opposition. Most volleyball matches go up to 25 points, best of three. Hope this helped! :)

Is it a back court violation if a Team A is dribbling in his front court and a team B player swipes the ball hitting the team A player before it goes to the back court and a Team A picks up the ball?

YES, it's a over and back if the ball touches a player on team A BEFORE going back court, because even though the player's hand didn't touch the ball it touched his/her body, therefore if they go back and get it, it's a turnover and over and back violation. IF a player on team B "tips" the ball, meaning touches it, and the ball goes back court and DOSE NOT touch a player on team A or goes out of bounds, the other player on team A CAN go back and get it and WILL NOT result in an over and back violation, because team B touched it last.
