I was speaking to this Indian gentleman who saw me playing the other day and he mentioned that he used to play ball badminton Puzzled I came home and searched for this game. It seems there is indeed a game called ball badminton played in South India (I AM FROM SOUTH INDIA - though I grew up in north india. I've never seen anyone play it). seems that you play with badminton rackets and light plastic balls. this is what Lord Google could come up with http://www.mysoresports.com/BallBadminton/Html/BallBadminton.htm anyone every heard of\played this? what are the rules like? can the ball bounce?
