Net Play Observation Schedule (PAR analysis)
Using both the video and an initial match analysis sheet I have been able to identify net play as my main weakness.
I will compare my performance against a model performance using the focussed observation schedule below. From this, I should be able to identify the strengths and weaknesses in my technique.
If I am successful at carrying out that part of the action, a tick will be placed opposite the criteria, if not a cross will be recorded.
Number of shots – _________________
|Starts from base.|
|Performer tracks path of shuttle and begins moving towards place shuttle will be played from.|
|Performer reaches with dominant hand and foot.|
|Racquet is held up in front of body.|
|Weight shifts slightly onto front foot.|
|Performer pivots with a wide stance and reaches in the direction of the shuttle.|
|Racquet is placed under dropping shuttle.|
|Racquet is dropped down and then lifted to contact shuttle as high as possible.|
|Performer lifts from shoulder to bump the shuttle over the net.|
|Racquet takes a short swing up with shuttle’s flight.|
|Push off with feet returning to balanced ‘ready’ position at ‘base’.|
