    I've been thinking a lot lately of a good name for a badminton team. I coach a local team here in our area with mostly high school students. Anyway, the word 'smashers', or 'netters' have been quite overused. Any suggestions on a good name for a badminton team? :confused:

    Quite a few cross my mind ....

    1) Strokers
    2) Footworkers
    3) Lobbers
    4) WTB - whack the birdie ...
    5) WTS - whack the shuttle ...
    6) Choppers ... as in chop shots

    :D

    And [town/area] Racket Club/Badminton Club is so wrong because ...? ;)
    Or just a team in a competition? (then see first suggestion)

    Angry Birds - watch out for legal err, issues :crying:. Perhaps Angry Geese :D?

    I thought drop shot is unique to badminton, but it's not the case. Google reveals that the net tumble is unique to badminton. So perhaps a play of that phrase.

    Does it really have to sound green? Cocksmashers? hehe.. Angry Birds is a good suggesstion, too mainstream though.. I like the bazooka one though.. Bazooka smashers? :)
