    Anyway, what I hate most about badminton must be people with really lousy technique beating you ( or even getting a point of you :P ).

    Another thing is that shuttles ar so damn expensive here in Sweden...

    And I hate people who say it's out when it's on the line (although I haven't met many of those...)

    in a group that i play w regularly, the players openly criticise each other during game. if one wins, they shout across saying all kinds of insulting things to the loser team. yet, after the game, they are smiling and talking and joking about the games, both winner and losers. most of them in the group have played together for eons. seriously, we quite enjoy the drama when such commotions happen!

    it makes the game more fun.

    now: the part i hate about badminton...when there is only 2 courts and there are 20+ ppl playing during e 2 hour game.

    yup. i hate the long wait for your turn to play. even worse is when its your turn to play, the opponents don't give you a chance to hit because they always give it to the weaker player. i just try to intercept the ball.

    Badminton is such an expensive sport.

    Lemme see,

    In decending priority and usage:

    1) shuttlecocks - checked
    2) booking of courts -checked
    3) hydration liquid - checked
    4) strings/grip -checked
    5) racquets/bag/accessories/shirts/shoes- checked

    But it is sure one heck of a game.

    Fluorescent strip lights running at 90 degrees to the court. It's like a strobe light going off in your eyes...

    My racquets. I have many, but none of them will hit the shuttle consistently over the net and in the court. You'd think Yonex would have had the problem solved by now.

    People who blame their equipment

    1. Racquet clashers. No matter how obvious its an advantage that it is for you to get it your partner still goes for it.

    2. A lot of punishment to the body. The earlier years of my training were indeed hard. I have had many ankle twists, cramps, and fatigue that left me bedridden. I don't hold a grudge against the intensive training but that was a lot of pain that I went through to get better.

    3. People who believe in fact that money buys skill. There is no easy way to the top. Skill is reflective of your ambitions. Equipment probably accounts for 3% of skill level. I have seen kids who wonder why their $1000+ membership, most expensive equipment, and training with coaches that the pros train with can't win all the time. Its just sad.

    4. Cost of badminton and club instability. Once you have hit a plateau with your club you have to move on/most of the club's members have moved on. If you don't pay up extra to go up to the next level then you're stuck at the same level with the danger of losing skill. I've been hit by this and it set me back a great deal.

    I hate some people’s attitude towards the game.

    In our club most of the players are above 40 and play doubles mostly. All loved to play badminton. We encouraged young and old alike to play badminton. We gave them all the help they needed to fall in love with Badminton. One of our friend who have never played badminton got interested and joined us. Like all others he was provided all the help. He was a volleyball player and an athlete who participated at university level when he was young. Once he had picked up the game to an average level his attitude in the court changed. He started to shout at his partners when they make a failure or doesn’t smash irrespective of how badly he plays. We all tried to reason with him and failed. He says it’s the same like Volleyball and his shouting is sports man spirit. Three of us have stopped playing badminton because of him. For him he has to win every game any way possible. Whenever he plays he quarrels with someone.

    We play twice weekly 2-3 hours per day. Whenever the opposing team is gaining points he makes up some reason to quarrel or cheats on the point or call an “OUT”
    an “IN” or vice versa. He says its sportsman spirit and everyone does it in tournaments!! We had tried to explain to him sportsman spirit and that we are not playing tournaments. We couldn’t convince him!!!

    If this guy loses few games he stops playing and fools around and no one else could play. He would then say he couldn’t sleep well or he had too much food or some lame reason. At first we all would let him win a game if he has lost few in a row to encourage him to play but now no one does that and no one wants to be his partner.

    If he wins, he will be boasting around how fit he is and will start to advice anyone at sight how he should play etc.

    Once he asked me to play singles with him. He rented a court for 2 hours. During the first few game he said I will loose because he is in a better shape and I am not. I would have let him win few games if he didn’t say it. After few games I wanted to go to the WC and this guy wouldn’t let me!!! He wants me to play another set!!! He says I am wasting 5 minutes of the court time!!! (Its not that he who is paying, we share the costs.) I told him to shut up. (He is a very good man and a good friend outside the court)

    Nowadays he have started a new method of cheating points. He stops telling the points during game or just tells his points. Later when the opposing team have a good lead he asks their score loudly and then turns and tell his partner quietly the opposing teams score and his score incremented by 2. He lets the play continue for a few more points and then points out that the opposing team is cheating by reducing his points and he verifies his points with his partner and let his partner argue for the points. All of us where clueless at first, after we where fooled for sometime we got the pattern and caught him on it. Now we all want him to say loudly the points while he serve.

    No one wants to play with him. We all feel sorry for him and hate his attitude in the court. We have talked to him regarding all these and he doesn’t sees anything wrong in it. He then starts talking about how to play to win as if it’s the only thing in badminton. We are clueless how to handle this issue.

    that's very very annoying and frustrating sometimes. i've run into it several times, but i usually choose to ignore it. if i beat them, then it only proves i can play better even against cheating. if i lose, i make sure they're free for a rematch next week

    everyone of us ignores this cheating, but someone will break his cool at some point of time and then a fight will start

    Hi, here is a list of the current things that are irritating me and makes me go red with fury (no offense is intended), and with or without reason :

    I hate people who judge what kind of player you are by the rackets you use.

    I hate people with exagerate serving stance and action (like hold shuttle behind back for 5 seconds before serving. Everytime. Why???)

    I hate "posh" badminton clubs in UK with an elitist attitude, who do not allow "normal", or lower class people (in their eyes) to play with them by charging an unbelievably extortionate high membership fee (Hundreds of pounds per month!)

    I hate badminton clubs (and people) who THINK they are elitist and that badminton was designed for their sporting needs.

    People who deliberately do not shake hands with you after a match (regardless win or lose).

    People who leave the shuttle on the floor after the point was played and won. Forcing either their opponents to cross under the net and pass it back, or their partner to pick it up.

    People who call every opponent's shot "out" if it lands anywhere near a line.

    People who sling shots or hit twice and do not call. Sometimes they even demand to play a let if the rally is stopped.

    People who try to repeatedly AND deliberately smash in your face (they shout YES, and clinch fist everytime it works).

    People who stare at the racket everytime they lose a point (I used to do it, but now I stopped cos I consciously know how silly it is).


    People with ungraceful shots, especially "tennis" style huge backhand drives. In fact, all people who play with terrible technique and still get away with it.

    People who shout and scream every rally to put their opponent off.

    People who mess with the shuttle before serving.

    People who refuse to allow you to warm up and start playing games immediately.

    People who refuse to "knock up" with you or play a friendly. For the people who reply when asked, usual excuses are they are injured - and then go on to play the next match as soon as other people are available, say they are resting or waiting for another match. Worse is people who say it is boring so no. Worst is people who pretend you are not there and can't hear you. They just stare into blank space! *******

    People who try to lecture you when they are not very good themselves.

    Ladies who just stand at the front during mixed and do nothing, expecting the male to get every point back. They just wait for the easy net kill!

    People who do not try.

    People who ignore the "pick from the first 6 or 8 people on the list" for club matches, so they can play whoever they like whenever. For instance, there are 4 courts, 20 players all playing doubles. 4 x 4 = 16 people on court with 4 people waiting. The rule of the club is you pick 4 from the first 6 people available, the person in the front of the queue picks first. I am second on the queue.

    A B X X X X X X X X X X X X X X Y Y Y Y

    where A represents person picking, B is me, X is people who came off, Y is the last to come off courts.

    A picks a team A, X, X, Y!

    The list is not accurate as these people come off at different times, but you get the picture...

    This doesn't always happen to me but it does happen, and to other players to (usually beginners), who are put off and never come back. Where is the new talent meant to come from? When the current players go (they are all old anyway) where is the people to fill them in? No wonder badminton is such an unpopular sport.

    What do you hate about the game and the people who play it? My main criticism is of prejudice, racism and dishonestly. By the way, I am talking from a UK perspective.

    Slanter, Dlb and other UK people care to comment?
    and if you broke the string?
    how would you know it?
    only by looking

    THING I HATE ABOUT BADMINTON:

    1, I hate it when my opponent's points reach 21 before mine does

    2, I hate it when the distance between my racket and the birdie is greater than 0 as I try to reach a shot

    3, I hate it when I have to move centimeters (sometimes even METERS) in order to reach the birdie

    4, I hate it when the goose that supplied the feathers for the shuttlecock I used comes back to haunt me

    5, I hate it when the ground on my side of the court seems to attract birdies whereas the ground on my opponent's side of the court seems to repel birdies

    6, I hate it when a fly flys into the court and I swing at it and it says "don't swing at me" and I say "woah you can talk" and the fly says "yeah, everything talks when you are high"

    7, I hate it when my opponent smashes the birdie so hard that the birdie warps space-time around it, creating a black hole that sucks in everyone and everything in the gym.
