    To add to the list:

    a) Racquets will be intelligent in that it will have "memory" of smashes so that at the exact moment of impact, it will stiffen (if necessary) or soften according to player's style.

    b) we will have oversize racquets (just like in tennis)

    c) The asians will still be the top players

    d) We will have different types of feather shuttles with goose being the most expensive and hen feathers being the cheapest:D

    e) the net will be higher since the new Nike court shoes allow a player to leap 4 feet in the air without any effort.

    f) Yonex still is the major sponsor of major events

    I think Mars actually has less gravity than Earth though not sure why.

    I think we'll be playing virtual badminton. We'll be able to hold a badminton racquet in an area of half the badminton court and run around playing all the strokes. We can do this in our home rather than physically going to a recreational centre.

    We'll be able to plug in matches against Morten Frost/Zhao/Yang Yang/Peter Gade like "Matrix". We can even get the machine to make us emulate these players in every detail, even the little beads of sweat that run down the forehead.

    We'll be even be able to combine the different skills into our own game, the defence of Frost, the jump smash of Heryanto Arbi, the clear of Susi Susanti.
    just awesome!!

    you're right cheung because the earth's mass is about 9x greater than mars.
