doubles or singles whats your favourite??
i have heard a lot of people saying they enjoy playing doubles better than singles or singles better than doubles. To me i would rather play singles and kill them on my own knowing i did all the work . Also singles is more up to you and knowing that it is always coming to you and not to the other person and making quick decisions on if its your shot or not. you do have to move around which tires you out quite a bit. ( but heard international players covers 4 miles of the court in 1 match)
in doubles you do alot less footwork. not long ago i was playing a mens doubles and i had a bad clash of the raquets. my NS8K luckily survived the clash but my partners didnt and from this experience i have wandered off playing doubles more often than i used to.
today im playing singles and on the rare occasion doubles.
Whats your favourite singles or doubles?

In singles you can't say: "Hey, you were supposed to get that one..."

i agree with jay... also singles allows you to be more creative, doubles is just too fast for me

I like doubles more. Faster action and frankly a lot more of it. God, I love the attacking and the tight net battles. Also I find it commands tighter shots and faster reflexes, more of a challenge in terms of skill, rather than physicals that you often find in singles. But I agree with loco here, the best part of doubles is blaming your partner for losing a rally .

I prefer Doubles as well. My partner and I know how to rotate at times and understands each other so we dont have a problem with "That was your shot"

I prefer singles. Every point is won by yourself and lost by yourself. You have nobody else to blame. Thinking about this can really make you improve harder.

Same here, I prefer singles. I get the good feeling knowing that all the shots are yours. Another problem with doubles (and I'm sure everyone has had this) is that you aren't sure who's going to hit the shuttle and at the final moment you decide, the shuttle already hits the floor!

for singles... my coach says i have a doubles way of playing singles.... which is no gd....
tt's y he always trains me for doubles....
btw i prefer doubles.. i like the fast action and i like to smash the crap out of my opponents.....
08-28-2005, 01:20 AM #14
hum im always switching between the two...if my hand feels like crap ill play singles cause i can use my drops and clears withough hurting my hand and have the occasional smash, i dont mind the running plus its nice knowing that i will win it...or lose it by myself. when my hand is not feeling like crap i will play doubles cause well i can just smash the hell out of my opponents and thats always fun plus the fast action is always great. i like both and well cant chose one over the other...

singles is fuN MON! like...yeah the running is kinda tiring...but SUCK IT UP! your opponent hasta do it as well singles..is mainly strat; if you have none..then good luck. Dbles is also strat, but power, speed, and teamwork is in high demand as well. i like the idea of matching brain to..the other thing BUT! the BEST thing about singles is when you play someone that is not to your level It's a good feeling knowing that your hard-work/training has finally paid off in the form of YOU PWNING SOMEONE!!! MAKING THEM RUN THEIR @$$ OFF!!! muahah! GO SINGLES!

Hardly to decide, but I think I like Single just a little bit more. The double factor also depend on who I am playing with that day.
P.S: why not making a poll???

I like singles for a really intensive match with lots of hard badminton.
Doubles is also good as long as me and my partner work together.
sometimes we do sometimes we don't
