    I really enjoy the 'competition feeling' and the competitiveness of the game. Tournaments are great fun in my opinion though. Also, because there is a great deal of speed, technique and skill involved in badminton, opposed to strength. And isn't hitting a jump smash so fulfilling? :p

    It's one of the Sports that the Yankees still not accustom too! So there is minimal Wilderness and Foolishness. A great plus in Healthy Exercise!;)

    I like it because there is always room for improvment. Unlike video games, there is no limit.

    Not a pro player so,it's a layperson point of view.I think it's fun and everything is under my control.This is the only sport that i can beat my brother,recently.and it's damn good feeling.:cool::p

    I believe the pro player had another good reason to make this as their career.It's good if we could ask them.

    I simply like to play badminton because of the excitement in the rallies that you're in and also when I first joined my former high school badminton, my friends who were siblings were playing so great. So I decided to try to play as well as them. Once I started, I felt so "cool" when I did all these jump smashes and learning to play consistently.

    IMO, badminton is the perfect sport. Anybody can play it (but few can play it well) and it's no less exciting to watch than to play yourself. There's satisfaction to be had both from an earth-shattering smash and a cheeky drop.

    But most of all it's the other people you meet. I've said this a hundred times and I'll keep saying it - you never get stupid badminton players:).

    exercise, a bit of fun, a bit of gambling (tiny bit to spice up the game), good place to socialise .... the list goes on ....

    Great enjoyment and social gathering of people who are keen to play the game. Always enjoyed and look forward to the next sessions. I like to deceptive shots, as they are really appreciated and smiles around. Good excercise as well.

    first, it is always happy when you can win or improve your badminton skill.
    second, we can meet new friends with same hobby.
    third, kill part time.
    fourth, keep fit

    Badminton is a Great Sport and Sweating Exercise. As for the Wilderness and Foolishness it depends on the WHEN and WHERE. In the place and time where there is no light and dark, it's Dangerous!:(
