Best racquet sport out there, imo.
I was good once, probably just under county level.
I want to play again soon. I brought my racquet down from home especially over xmas :(
someone play with me
I do really like it and used to play, but I've got more into tennis now and don't want to go back to badminton for a bit (unlearning badminton took me a while).
Is that a good thing? A bad thing? idk.
I've always played badminton. Playing tennis for the first time fucked me over. I just instinctively went to the centre of the court and kept wondering why I couldn't get to anything :/
I prefer tennis because it's much, much harder than badminton (or has a steeper learning curve at least). In badminton you don't have to worry much about positioning, power, spin etc, it's more about reactions and technique. It is fun though. The thing that used to fuck me up is that whenever you get into those little rallies at the net where you both keep dinking it over I always get a giggle fit. Always.
I've been playing squash with racketball rules.
I don't anymore.
There was a thread about sports you invented once, I was going to put it in there but in the end I couldn't be bothered.
normal rules apply but you just had to flash a bit of scrote now and again
Used to be county coach / player. I almost took up coaching full time at one point.
I'd play it every week if I could.
between here and the Hebrides.
I do. Playing at 2pm today.
is that when you play then you end up in a sports hall surrounded by tubby people who are shit at badminton, and it kills your buzz.
I have a goal to get really good at tennis and start playing tournaments again.
but if I say it here it might actually happen

bit dainty int it
It's ok but finding a free court is an absolute nightmare.
(probably because I'm pretty bad at it)
Tennis >> squash > table tennis >>> badminton
Badminton > Squash > Table Tennis > Tennis for me
My most overweight friend absolutely spanked me so I've been put off for a while. Think I was playing with a tennis arm rather than a limp badminton wrist. Squash is best though.
and yeah, what's the point of this topic then?
but then I played my dad and all my dad does is aim the shuttlecock directly at his opponent's face at all times and I kept losing and getting hit in the face so I stopped playing it
I would play it again with someone who didn't hit it at my face
sounds like a good chap.
despite the badminton style/hysterical laughing as it hits my face again
makes you feel great achievement, can make you feel like you had a great game and are good at it, even if you are just normally OK at it like everyone else.
I can confirm that tennis is well more satisfying to play. You get to wallop it more and do cheeky spin and stuff. Wkd.
I would like to play badminton if you want.
Actually, everyone on this forum, play me at the badminton.
yay for sports
late March, perhaps?
got for 1st April instead....?
like tennis but for lazy people
I like it!
obvious troll is obvious
Love that guy. And I don't love guys
i'll get back to you all
Lots of fun. Not even playing by any rules, just rallying back and forth. Lovely stuff.
(also: hope Verbal is doing ok.)
probably on the wind-up.
