Well hello birdie people My name is Hans, born 23-12-1981, and I play badminton at a beginner / intermediate level. I'm very passionate about it an d very eager to get better every day. I love watchin Lin Dan, LCW, Peter Gade on YouTube, what those guys can do with a shuttle is nothing short of absolutely magical. 'Specially Lin Dan, my absolute favourite In playing, I always try to mimic his movements and rhythm, and although I can't keep up (duh ) - I find that adopting his general way of playing gives me a handle on playing games. Next september (2013) I will be playing official (regional) competition for the first time and I'm totally excited about it! That's me.... other hobbies include films, hiking, reading and just generally rocking =] Greetingz from Heiloo!
