    I haven't decided if I will continue to play through Summer.

    As I am still trying to build strength after surgery last August on my right knee.

    I plan on lifting weights, to build more explosive strength. Riding and swimming to build strength and cardio.

    I want to start the pre season next year fitter, faster and stronger and don't beleive that playing all year long may improve your game.

    I do keep playing over the summer. In fact, I think I play more throughout the summer because I am still a student and during the summer I have more free time to dedicate to badminton.

    Is badminton a winter sport? Why wouldn't you play through the summer? Playing through the winter is pretty bad I think ... so cold =X It hurts so much more when the shuttle hits you, especially your fingers =S

    i cant play.
    they almost close the halls for 6 weeks - only one week you can play 3 times but i guess is overcrowded then.

    i dont know what to do besides jogging swimming or weightlifting (maybe shadow play in the nature...) and then very shortly after this big break the new league season starts.

    Just get a net and go to the park.
    It is not the same, but is more than nothing...

    Or may be some kind of abondoned warehouse with plenty of space...
    Or an airshed

    Tennis and badminton are quite different. Don't try to use the wrist in tennis too much or you might injure yourself.

    And if you really want it (to play badminton over summer), you will find a way to do it.

    You fortunate people have quite a few places to play (sigh). there's only one place that's within 30 km of me and indoors and they have to be booked in advance since lots of other sports like basketball and volleyball take place. There are other places about 50-60 km away from me but it drains to travel so far. Fortunately the majot tourneys in Jamaica are in the summer so I do get to play somewhat.
