i think i can confirm this incident, as my coach had told me he was there when it happened. apparently it was one of the crappy community center provided steel racket of some kind, and the shaft/head came apart from the handle. it is a very tragic incident. i think it was 4 white people, under the age of 30, playing, when a racket head+shaft flew off and struck a person opposite the court near the eye. this resulted in brain damage or something, and the poor fellow passed away

Thanks for the info, SWC_Ant ... I think many players are curious of the details of this tragic incident.

this is indeed really sad.
but to learn from this accident, we badminton players need to keep an eye out, make sure the rackets our opponents use are in good condition and won't suddenly fall apart.
but i think such an accident is very very rare, the chance that we see a racket break and flying off is very rare, and add to that having it fly straight into someone's eye is even more rare. at least we do hope so.

Feel very very sorry for this person.
All the safety concerns, such as inspecting equipment, should be highly recommended through out our community. However, don't be surprised that many "good players" will think us getting crazy, for looking at rackets all the time before the game.
One more thing, i really get motivated to improve my body reflex now.

man why wud u use a steel racket as a training racket though? its dangerous + it can injure u, because of uneven distribution of weight. Use an Iso 53 mf, those are 2u g3, and the sweet spot is big, so u wun get as much power with ur regular swing, causing you to improve strengh. iso 53 mf = good training racket

I remember one night a while back, at Britannia, there was this rather silly 80+ year old (lol...not me!) who was playing with a bunch of younger teens (lol...lol...NOT ME!), and after playing a game as he sat down on the bench, he just casually collapsed. he was totally unconscious, and had labored breathing. W-O-D had to close the gym as the ambulance came to attend to him. he did wake up, and he had absolutely no idea what had happened and why there was all the emergency crew around him.

the doctors said he suffered a stroke thats why he collapsed, and at the same time when he hit his head on the floor gave him the concussion, having a 2inch hole at the back of your head will make you lose blood a lot quickly, so i guess both, i talked to the guy he was playing with, he told me that there wasnt any sign that the guy was having an attack or something, they both sat down to drink, after a couple of seconds the guy stood up then suddenly fell, kinda scared on what just happened, im just 30 yrs. old and that thing happened to someone whose younger than me thay tried to revive him 'cuz some of the players on the court were nurses and doctors but there was nothing they can do.

Sorry to hear the demise of some badminton players while in action. I do also hear some pll died of heart attack while playing badminton. However i think the mortality rate in badminton is still much lower compare to other sports.
