Badminto injuries can be caused by your opponent, your partner or by yourself.
If the shuttle is high over the net and your opponent rushes like an express train to whack the shuttle, please duck or just turn your back. Don't be a hero and risk an eye injury.
Never look behind you to see what your parner is gonna do with the shuttle. He may hit a cross-court drive right into your eye. I was hit several times but luckily at the back of my head.
A shuttle between partners always causes problems. A shout like "LET" or "YOURS" may help.
How many of you have accidentally hit yourself, usually on the fingers of the non-racket hand?

In the past, I have occasionally hit myself on the lips and cheeks after fending off drives to my face, on either knees when I jump smashed, and frequently on my fingers when I mis-timed my service shot.

Ugh... just the sound of it made me wince. I got so close to my partners' backswing so many times it's scary. I could actually feel the wind generated from their swing. Man, hope I won't get clipped by them cuz I have a feeling it's gonna be more painful than I could ever imagine. *knock on wood*

Perhaps body armor will remove the fear people have for double.

I hit my thumb of my non-racket hand really hard in a match because I was getting fatigued (it was at a tournament in the semis and our opponents had taken us to three games). It swelled up but I kept playing. That was about two weeks ago. It still hurts when I put a little pressure on it. I hope it's not fractured or anything. But as long as I have my racket hand healthy, I'm still practicing.

I've hit myself in a rather delicate area after a particularly bad follow through
Since then I have hit myself in the thigh with a follow through and the same as Cappy I have hit myself in the face after trying to reply to certain drives
As for Sheldons idea of gloves, I saw someone in the same competitionas me at the weekend wearing a Wilson golf glove on his racket hand, how odd!

Last year in a badminton tournament, I broke a kid's glasses when I smashed it into him. He was pretty lucky. So I now, I try to smash down more so I wouldn't hurt anyone else.

Now u know the real reason of my cramp:
1. Too scared...
2. Try to find an excuse to get away from deadly combo from Smashingbird and lil badrad...

Nah, just get them to beat the sh*t out of your partner if he messed up and accidentally 'assault' you with his racquet.

I think of all the preventable injuries... despite one of Dill's unfortunate incidents, getting hit in the eye is still the worst kind. I have mentioned in one of the threads about a guy losing sight in one of his eyes from his partner's shot. How about getting conked by flying racquets? Given the relative proximity of your partner, it's not impossible to sustain a concussion from his/her mis-swing. Not very pleasant.

Yeah, those right-dab-in-the-middle shots can be really tricky to return. That's why whenever I get those while at the net, I just take step forward and crouch down so that my partner would have better field of vision and room to go for it. Back players get better shot than the front ones, thus priority goes to them. Sometimes, it just doesn't pays to be greedy.
