Movement pattern in term of court coverage among top international male and female badminton players during BWF World Championships 2013
Keywords:badminton, movement pattern, court coverage
The aim of this study are to identify the movement patterns of top international male and female badminton players in term of their court coverage. Twenty games (n=20), ten each from the males and females single of the World Championships 2013, were chosen for this study. The subjects were all elite athletes from the various countries’ national squads. All games were analysed using Sports code Pro, which was recorded by Astro Beyond. Then, the researcher is required to identify the specific movement patterns especially on court. Finally, the movement patterns and direction movement of athletes on court were identified and analysed. From the results of this study, we can see that the opponents will try to send the shuttlecock to the sites far from the players to earn advantages. It is a need for the badminton players to have a proper physical conditioning training in order to increase their performance and at the same time reduce the risks of injury.
