The overhead clear is a tactical stroke to move the opponent around the court. Playing a good clear makes the opponent move more distance and opens up areas of the court. Clears can be slow or fast in speed. To get greater speed and distance in the forehand clear, try to whip the racquet head into the shuttle at the point of impact during pronation. Having speed and distance in the clear will also push your opponent into working harder physically and puts more pressure on the opponent..
