Wow it's been so long since I came here.. I used to visit this place everyday, basically reading every thread to see if there were any good tips for a beginner like me. After my school's badminton season ended though, I stopped practicing entirely... But yesterday, I went to Thompson Community Centre to play a little basketball with my friends, and I peaked into the gym. Wowzernesss... I saw some doubles' matches going on, and I couldn't take my eyes off. The people weren't that impressive... But just seeing them smash, net shot, clear, drop was enough... Anyways... Hmm why am I posting this? hmmm Oh yeah, my racquet hasn't been restrung for around 8-9 months... Should I restring it? The last time I strung it, it was at around 24 lbs. I think.. or 23... I'm also thinking of getting a new racquet.... How are those Isometric Titanium Swing Power racquets? I'm more of a singles player, and I prefer smooth drops and net shots over a powerful smash... I like flexible racquets... Oh yeah I'm not that good... yeah I guess that's about it... hmmm, are there any junior players that come here?
