Linking Skills As well as being able to perform individual skills, a skilled performer will link strokes together to put the maximum pressure on their opponent. This will create attacking openings in a match. The ability to select the most effective shot at the crucial time is a major part of a skilled performance.
Movement A skilled performer will demonstrate a quality of movement that is economical and efficient, throughout the whole match. Movement is agile and quick, both towards the shuttle and in recovery to base on the court. Able to perform skills while moving a full pace. This is helped by good anticipation and quick reactions.
Tactics A skilled performer is able to implement tactics to take advantage of, their strengths, as well as their opponents weaknesses.

Tactics should also be adaptable during matches.
Personal Qualities A skill performer will also demonstrate a number of key personal qualities such as; Creativity Concentration Motivation Determination Where two players abilities are closely matched a skilled performer will rely on these personal qualities.
Information-processing • A skilled performer is able to easily make quick and effective decisions based on the input received from the senses. • They are then able to move and respond to the decisions made and will then use the feedback from their performance to inform their next decision.
Managing Emotions The ability to manage emotions is highly important, especially for the high pressure points in each match. This will allow the performer to focus on their performance. Controlling anger and excitement will also help to regulate energy levels.
Etiquette (unwritten rules) an informal code of conduct that says how a team or player should behave. These rules recognise the importance of co-operation, showing respect, and consideration for others. Performers who fail to follow the code are said to be unsporting. For example – In badminton and many other activities it ends with players shaking hands at the end of the game. Also In rugby, players line up to clap the opposition off of the park. If a player is injured during a football match, it is common to see the ball put of play by the opposition.
