    Here is a list of the current things that make badminton enjoyable and keep me coming back for more!

    The never ending competition.

    The sound I make when i hit the shuttle.

    The quickness.

    The exercise. (Keeps me away from smoking)

    The game is so hard to play that I will never be able to master the game.

    to be continue.....

    No need for makeup when baddy will do...

    Any girls playing badminton and play it well get her cuteness factor doubled:D. And yes, the game is perfect.

    Yes, I love the quickness as well, to better phrase it, the speed of the game. A lot of people think its a slow game where you hit it back and forth, but this game is really quick and gives me a thrill everytime.

    :D :D So this game also brings couples together ahem*kwunjanet*ahem.
    So is very socialable but at the same time and develop rivalries.

    To me, the best thing about badminton is meeting people, making new friendships, and travelling interstate for competitions.

    Badminton is fun

    My friends and I are just local club players but we enjoy the laugh we have while playing....and it keeps our fitness levels up as we are older than we care to remember ;) joining the clubs is also a good way to make new friends.

    It's good to see you got a club Marya!

    I was coaching a group of beginner/intermediate adults who of course think they are much better than they actually are with their inability to hit a clear or trying to hit it between their legs etc. and I was looking across the courts and what did I see on the court near the door?

    A young boy and his grand-dad were playing and having a laugh, no hi tech fancy gear no Yonex logos to speak of, just bog standard equipment and a nice game and fun!

    I still remember it when I have to deal with all the pretentious wannabees! I just take a step back and remember it, it just restored my faith in the game at the time when I was getting sick and tired of it!
