I have no idea why, but I started playing badminton since young with left hand, but I write with my right hand, cook with my right hand , but sew with my left hand.No idea, really.Perhaps it's like letting my other hand rest?hmm.My parents and siblings had not noticed this until I recently played with them. How observant they were..well, I played more with my friends, that's why

Badminton = left
writing = right
drawing = left
pingpong/tennis = left (all racket sports now that i think about it)
baseball/throwing = right
catching = left or right
I was born a complete lefty. Infact only my left arm would move around the first 3 months of my infancy. However, teachers in China tried correcting me to write with the 'right' (correct) hand; besides, back then when tried to write characters in a fountain pen with my left hand, the point would always poke holes through the paper lol! But i guess they never completely succeeded in correcting me, so now i end up using both hands for different things. I find me writing with the right hand and drawing with the left hand the most interesting...lol...

there are more right handed ppl in the globe, so i guess righthands most likely going to have the most votes. But I heard that left handed player tend to pick up badminton easier. Is that true?

It has been said that lefties have faster reaction.
I am not sure about the above claim, but I know from being a lefty myself, I have 'crazier' shots than righties. For example, if I play feather and I perform a forehand cutdrop. The shuttle will start out with incredible speed yet decelerate quickly to drop right over the net. That, i think, its a trade mark of left-handed players because the spin induced on the shuttle is different. Lefty's spin decelerate the shuttle faster because of the constant feather arrangement: left over right. Not to mention, people can react to my shot's timing well because there still aren't that many lefties in badminton compared to righties. For that reason, lefties are also more naturally deceptive. But thats all aside from the fact that everytime someone tries to hit to my 'backhand' they endup hitting to my forehand because people are so used to playing right handed players haha!

Someone mentioned to me before that Malaysia usually try to pair up left-right combo doubles teams cuz it's harder to play against them and usually either side of the court you hit to them is to their forehand.

Left Handers vs Right Handers
How come most of my 'Right' handed players say they have problems playing with 'Left' handed players?
