Am I the only one that makes a big deal out of color contrast?

    I play at a place where they hang a black curtain from the ceiling to about 5 feet down. This is helpful when looking upward right before you hit a clear or smash. My question is, why not have the curtain go down all the way so you can benefit from the contrast during fast flat rallies as well?

    Seems like an easy thing to do

    If they did that, I'm sure some kids would hang and swing on them like Tarzan. ;) So, no.

    Shame, because having good contrast between shuttle and hall makes for a better game.

    What colour is the wall behind the curtain? I hope that it's similar to the curtain.

    Worst venue I played at was a dull grey until about 8 feet from the floor, when it switched to white. The time taken to readjust made smash defense difficult. This was compounded by the opposition who preferred to drive from shoulder level rather than play a proper overhead.

    I play at a leisure centre where there are lights at the back of the court just above the tape level, defending against flat drives is a nightmare.

    I notice this is common for all the badminton places in my area (Vancouver).
