    well most people think that badminton is a boring sport, if only more exhibitions like these were done, it can be a fun sport! do watch it.

    Excellent video for sharing, very useful too. Just wondering why did not see any backhand actions? Hope the kids are good at it too :)

    All those players were French?
    I would love to see current bunch of baddy players in the circuir to perform more tricky shots as in the video.
    Its kinda like watching NBA players with the highly entertaining shot in Badminton.

    I think it's because badminton is popular enough in Asia without such exhibitions.. as a Malaysian, to see good games all one has to do is walk into a badminton hall in the evenings when badminton halls are packed and choose a good court to watch. ;)

    Still, the players was good! I would love to watch such exhibitions here. :D
