Thread: Things you hate about badminton!
07-23-2009, 04:36 PM #290
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.

Badminton is such an expensive sport.
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.

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.
