sigh...sorry to say that badminton has come to.....last weekend during a public gym session, there was a fight...between 2 relatively "mature" (40/50+) players - lets call them A and B. Lets just say B is a C level player, and A and his buddies are at least B level players. Before this, during other previous sessions, I noticed that, when it was B's turn to play, A and his buddies would immediately hoard the court and then A would tell B that court is full, so B cannot play. This occured quite a few times. But B would quietly go to other courts to play with real beginners. B is trying very hard to improve, which is why he wants to play with this group, but could never do so. So, during a shift change, A was about to play in court 1 and B was to play in court 3 (note that there is another court separating court 1 and 3). There were a lot of people there that night. Obviously, A was going to play with his buddies, but his other buddies who weren't playing on court 1 were about to play in court 3...with B on court 3 as well of course. So, A dashed to court 3 and prohibited B from playing, and of course arguement ensued and ended up with both of them hitting each other with their rackets. The fight was stopped by a few of us and the shift continued. When the shift ended, A and B argued and A started to swing his racket and hit B a few times again. There were many young kids there too, so I told B, for the sake of the kids, just walk away...and he did, and someone else pulled A away. There you have it, my first experience of a fight during badminton session. Anybody else experienced this kind of stuff before?
