well i have been playing badminton for a while now-but i just started taking it seriously about 3 months ago. i finished 4th place out of my school and thought i knew everything lol well i just went to my first lesson yesterday and i am in a group of 12 people my age, theres 2 of them who are about the same skill lvl as me and every1 else is so/so but i didn't even hold my racket right-or have proper footwork lol, after my coach showed me how to do the forehand and backhand grip i was amazed at how much more power i had in my shots, i have always been known as being a good player with really lousy and slow smashes. but today whilst playing a few people noticed and said "whoah your smashes have gotten better!" it felt really good lol, and man i learnt alot my first lesson! can't wait till the next 1!!
