Abstract: The purpose of this study was to establish the validity, reliability, and objectivity of badminton skills tests for the smash and overhead drop shot. These tests attempted to distinguish between players better able to execute the smash and drop strokes, and those of lesser proficiency. The tests were administered to forty-five women students during the twelfth week of fourteen-week instructional service classes in beginning badminton at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Subjects had little or no previous experience in badminton recreationally and/or instructionally. Three sections were tested in the study and later combined into one group of forty-five subjects. A one-way analysis of variance method was used to determine whether there were any significant differences between the performances of the three groups on the tests. No significant differences in performance were found, thus allowing the three groups to be combined into one group for further analysis.
