Badminton skills solving real world problems
Sadly the real world problem I'm talking about is actually quite small, though it is still entertaining to solve. Or if you want to put your badminton hand eye coordination skills and reaction times to the test!
I had a fly in my room, and rather than using the fly swatter to hit a fly while it was standing still, why not use a racket and hit a fly in mid air?
This idea randomly popped in my head as the fly was buzzing around me so I decided to record myself performing this fantastic feat. It may be hard to see the actual fly unless you watch the video on higher resolution, but you can definitely hear the fly hit my strings.
In advance, excuse my language during some moments because I was so surprised.
I used a racket no other than my trusty Panda Power Trinity Pro, 84g 305 bp!
You can observe my forehand net kill technique with the small tap to give the killing blow to the pesky insect!
For your entertainment, hope you get a chuckle out of a badminton player using his skills in real life.
I also hold no responsibility for any broken rackets or household items for those who attempt to reproduce this feat =)

Personally, I'd have used a pair of chopsticks.

Wasn't there a commercial from HK posted here on BC last year with four people all using racket skills to do ordinary household things? I thought one of them was swatting flies.
Anyway, Tactim, I bow to your skills! Swatting flies in that crowded room without breaking your racket shows how skillful you are. I bet you never hit the tape in follow through of your net kills!

It's a fair game to the flies ... they still could escape.
