Just wondering if you ever see rainbows in your parts of Canada? I also had this question for some time. Since many BCers are in Canada and I assume ppl like to play there more than in US, was it because the cold weather in Canada made outdoor sports less feasible compared to an indoor sports like baddy? In US, more ppl are interested in "football" and baseball
So how many times you play each week and does the club have "elite players" who are annoys to others or you're already one of them by now? I'm glad that the rank of active mature female BCers has grown by another one if I'm not too far off

Well, Canada is only freezing during the winter, unless you live way up North, so I don't that think we Canadians like badminton more just because it's in a convinient indoor setting. In fact, I actually play badminton outside sometimes during the summer .
Unfortunately, I only get one chance to play baddy each week ! I'm way too busy these days to get some more play in, and my club only plays once a week anyway . But I practise at home everyday regardless.
As far as annoyed elite players go, I came across none! The players at my club are really kind and during my first few weeks they helped me improve a lot. And when I played against the elite players, they all did their best to stay within a certain amount of skill range so they that didn't overwhelm me. I even won a few matches against those players, but I'm 99.99 % sure that they were going easy on me . Now, however, I would consider myself to be a decent match for the elite members of my club, and they don't go easy on me anymore because they now that I've improved .
And yes, many rainbows appear around my area during the warmer seasons .

Thanks for the information. Sorry being nosy and I will yield at this time
But before you go, could you please tell me how can you improve from a beginner to one with "elite" playing skills so quickly? How do you practice at home? We all want to improve our skills, and there must be something I can learn from you

The televisions in our house have sufferend a great deal as well...
I remeber that my little brother found my racquet once... it was a nightmare.
I must say, he's really smart and tricky for his age. He used the racquet to extend his reach and open the junk food cabinet, which was unaccesible beforehand, even when he used his mickey mouse chair. He then went downstairs cracked a mirror, scratched the walls, and scratched the t.v!
Now all of this happened when I was at the baddy club, but I know it was him because there was that orange cheese from Cheetos on my racquet and they were spilled all over downstairs as well, and my brother is the only one that eats the crunchy Cheetos in our family. When I asked my everyone in my family why they let him do that they said they were all in the garage trying to hang up my older brother's punching bag, and that they thought that my little brother was sleeping.
We had to get a new t.v, and I had cheese all over my grip.
