    Hi guys. Ken from New Jersey here. Came across this site by accident and I am finally glad to have had an accident.
    Once I show my wife this site, she will finally have to stop telling me it's a picnic game for kids!!
    Looking forward to benefitting from the plethora of knowledge here. :)

    Welcome to BadmintonForum, brauer ... :D

    I think stumbling on to this site is how most people got here in the first place. What's your playing profile? Play a lot?

    I'm actually...

    just starting to get back into the game. I played a lot when I was younger (now 47). I'd forgotten how much fun it is. The only downside is that my buddy's wife is ticked off that we destroyed the yard with our 4 hour match this past Saturday. (the muscles just began functioning again yesterday, and it's looking as if I won't be paralyzed for life after all. :)

    Just an additional question following up ants's question.. what exactly did you take out in their garden? A messed up grass patch here? A fallen tree here and there? Crater over there? Messed up flower beds? lol.. i'm picturing a garden that has gone chaotic.. :rolleyes:

    Actually...

    It was a tad slippery, but you have to deal with what you have. The key is to have good shoes and to avoid sweating. :)
