    It already exists. I remember seeing a photo of beach badminton somewhere. I don't recall where (I saw the photo), though.

    How 'bout this for the next proposal: beach badminton as silentheart said, no singles event only doubles, tennis style serve from behind the baseline, rally scoring---of course, got to keep that---one serve per side; but, each side is allowed up to 3 hits between them before hitting the shuttle over to the other side.

    Each side is allowed 3 90-second timeouts per set when loud music and cheerleaders can go on court to entertain spectators. Player clothing can not cover more than 25% of the player's body.

    70% skin cancer coverage compulsory (benign is acceptable). Oh, and make the net higher.

    This is the zenith for Punch Gunalan, his every dream come true. His first mandate will be to make it a clothing optional sport. Failing that, as Quasimodo already suggested, 25% maximum coverage otherwise a forfeit of one set. Are you clairvoyant? Punch is looking for a man with top ideas.

    Just as long as you do not go topless, I can live with your ideas.

    Ha.....very good! Punch is fast becoming a clown and a butt of all jokes. Nothing more deserving for a man who is out to murder badminton

    *imagine* The top ten world players moving in the water like some 3-year-old splashing n the wading pool and it would be televised worldwide.. a joke of the town really...

    Looks like Punch is being blamed for eveything. Put yourself in Punch's shoes, you can really make mega bucks suing for damages.

    Actually, I don't get it. Why is it that every change IBF suggests has to be lambasted? Of course, IBF are not perfect and some of the suggestions are a bit silly, but ...

    What is wrong with plastic shuttlecocks? (I assume this thread is particularly about the introduction of plastic shuttlecocks, and not just the usual general IBF-Punch Gunalan lambasting.)

    If you ask me, if (and only if) they can come out with a plastic shuttlecock that feels like the feather kind, then this is a very positive development indeed.

    Benefits:
    1. Cut the cost of badminton - feather shuttlecocks take up a significant portion.
    2. How many times have we seen those silly arguments about changing and not changing shuttlecocks (a la Lin Dan - and getting more common)?
    3. Changing shuttlecocks is commonly used as an excuse to have a breather, especially when everyone is almost ready, then someone requests for a change.
    4. No more accusations of tampering with the feather.
    5. Don't know if it will help some geese, but good if it does save some.
    6. Maybe it will do some good for the tree that supplies the cork part as well.

    Bad:
    1. Any form of plastic is not good for the environment.
    2. Maybe some industries from raw material to retail will lose some money if feather shuttles not used anymore.

    1. - plastic last longer. One plastic can last as long as ~6 feathers.
    - plastic can be made recyclable.
