    I feel sorta strange replying to a thread that was last answered to 4 years ago... @_@

    But anyway, recently I was playing a match against this guy at my club, and I ended up beating him (even though I strongly believe that he was going easy on me) and when up to him to shake hands, he just handed me the shuttle instead #_#. I just stood there staring at the shuttle while he walked away and then started snickering when I realized what had just happened. It looked sort of strange because I was just standing in the middle of the court laughing by myself. I walked away when I noticed that everyone was staring at me... ^_^

    Something similar happened to me once, but instead of handing me a shutttle, my opponent handed me his racquet thinking that I wanted to see it or something... ^.^

    depends. when i played with the usual friends, we never shook hand because we ebd up chatting while catching our breath for the next game. when we play with others that is not familiar to our group, we usually just smile, nod and say thank you. some even put their hands up in the air while nodding and smiling and saying thank you. but once i entered a competition just for fun and i shook the opponents' hands under the net because we were all shorties. cant reach above the net comfortably.
