    You must be playing against monks or some truly honourable people if you're expecting this.

    I have never ever seen a person produce a sling shot the way I described and still try to claim a point off it.

    I know your comment is tongue and cheek Visor but I was always coached to play fairly. If I play a duff shot I call it. If you cheat to win then all your victories are hollow as you have not won by fair means and in effect you have broken the rules.

    I have seen this happen. I have also witnessed bad line calls, rushing the serve, deliberatley slowing down the game to the point where it took a full minute between some points, double hits and other various faults. Some players will use any means to win.

    But that's what makes badminton somewhat unique. It's a game of trust & honor, in that both you and your opponent will not cheat.

    Sometimes I think it's not the fact that it's your opponent is cheating. They just see it at a different point of view/angle, or they are just not too sure of the rules so they defend what they think is correct.

    I think it would be best to find a middle-man if such an occassion arises to judge whether it is a fault or not, and if you feel like the middle-man isn't doing their job properly, go up to them, explain to them what you think is right and see how it goes.
