    Badminton is definately my favourite sport.
    But I do play others like basketball, football(goal keeper) and table tennis.
    I used to play tennis and volleyball when I was younger but lost interest after a while...used to be quite good in high jump!
    I also cycle, swim, rollerblade, ice skate etc.

    Oh alright then...!

    Other than playing badminton like there's no tomorrow, I also play tennis, road bike riding and downhill mountain biking. I find that tennis really mess your badminton game up as I often unconsciously perform slice backhand and topspin forehand shots - looks really goofy on the badminton court!

    Road bike riding is good as I don't have too much problem with my knee and ankles, as riding builds up your leg strengths and lung capacity. Downhill mountain bike riding, on the other hand, really builds up hand and eye co-ordination, upper body strength as well as sprinting speed - quite helpful for fast running on court.

    I also play the occassional squash (natural progression from badminton and tennis), volleyball, golf, Oz rule football, soccer and cricket. This year I am going to learn how to ski (properly, that is!) roller bladding, scuba diving, and even do a bike ride around the island of Tasmania! Basically if I have time and chance, I will give it a go - as long as it doesn't eat into my badminton time or my beauty sleep.....

    In High school: Hockey, baseball, volleyball, soccer, tennis and curling. (Probably none of you know what curling is, except maybe some of the Canadians and Brits since your women won gold in Salt Lake. Can you believe that curling has higher TV ratings than hockey in Canada?!) And, yes curling is a sport and more of a sport than Major League baseball.

    Now Tennis, running, weight training. I really want to get back into curling though. After all in what other sport do the opposing teams get together after the game and happily have a beer together.

    Curling must be bad for badminton. Too much upper arm motion.

    Good anaerobic exercise though!

    Wow do you really know what curling is? Unless your hurt and your shoulder is tender curling really shouldn't hurt Badminton. But it could help strengthen your arms since the rock is 40lbs.

    Aside from Badminton, I play golf and basketball. Though mentally, both badminton and golf are different in the sense that with badminton you play against another player while in golf, you are against yourself and nature both sports are challenging and help me relax. i guess thats what important.

    One of these days someone need to explain to me the art of curling, not really sure what it is and I guess that's why I can't truly appreciate it as a sport yet. Looks interesting and heard from some Canadian friends that it is quite challenging as well.

    If you really want me to. I could post an attempt at an explanation. It might be kind of long though, but I wouldn't mind. It is quite challenging, once people try it they are very surprised at how difficult and physically demanding it can be. Though not as demanding as badminton.

    I did a bit of coaching and I remember some Hockey and Track & Field players who tried it. They had bruises from falling on the ice because they kept forgetting which foot to step on the ice with and some of the ones who weren't bruised complained about sore arms and legs. Now I'm a big guy, not 2 subway seats fat but you wouldn't look at me and say "He's in great shape." Some of these people(schoolmates of mine, this was during highschool and for a few years after) were very arrogant and were making fun of curling. It was kind of funny seeing them in such discomfort. Am I mean or what?
