The other groups used combination of physical, mental imagery, visual and verbal training methods. Result: The results of paired sample t test had showed significant differences for all experimental groups between pre and post tests. The results also shown that there is significant different (F=3.42, p<0.031) in physical training in combination with mental imagery and verbal stimulus group than the other physical and mental imagery training groups. Findings: The findings suggested that combination between physical training and mental imagery training with verbal stimulus increased the accuracy and speed of basic badminton skills.
