fractured wrist should i keep playing ?
Last night i fractured my wrist warming up (tripped and fell landing heavily on the wrist)
at the time i didnt think it was fractured and as it was my right wrist and i am left handed i decided that after i put an ice pack on the wrist when i was siting waiting for my games that i would be fine as long as i was careful
I played on and it didnt seem to affect my performance

now my arm is in a cast i feel more than able to play the cast is to be taken off in approx 4 weeks but obviously as i am crazy i really need to play badminton
As it is my other arm that is injured can anyone see the harm in me playing with a fractured wrist seeing as i was able to last night without much problem ?
Also i have a Freindly tournament that i have a good chance to do well in and the organiser said that they dont mind me playing with a cast on
I really dont want to withdraw

yes and no.
yes: your racket hand is still ok but hit around casually
no: the cast weight can off balance u one way or another and u would trip and fall again. So no tournament play
no: your cast wont allow u to sweat off that wrist.

there is a reason they put a cast on a fracture. think about that
Best advice, don't do anything that could endanger it. Sorry, but Badminton should be out for at least the 4 weeks. like cooler said, your balance will be off, and that will cause you to trip and fall at least once.

You think it would be ok playing against weaker people or just take part in meaningless matches without any comptitiveness ? That's probaly ok you think ?
Yesterday I had a one game match to 21 and the final score belive it or not was 30-29 !! The guy I was playing is slightly better than me but I beat him with a fractured wrist
I thought I would add I barely sweat through my arms it's mostly legs and head for me I have sweat bands as well if that helps
The cast weight hasn't thrown me off balance so far will probaly have a knock up tommorrow to see what It feels like

If you are really that desperate to play badminton, practice footwork :P

Take care LDrules. Let it heal. You still have 70years of badminton!

around 11 yrs ago, i fell down from a bike and landed on my right wrist. i dont' think it was fractured but it was too painful and weak to even hold a badminton racket. a cast probably wouldn't have helped.
the bug bite and i found myself at the badminton gym, playing with my left hand.
sorry i don't have any suggestion for you, just wanted to share with you an old story.
