    Game: Singles (I used to play doubles, but switched over when I joined a club)

    Style: Passive? I'm not sure if that's actually a style, but when I play it involves a lot of deep clears and tight drops to make them run around. I usually play the high percentage shots in order to tire my opponents out. I don't mind blocking smashes, but I don't hesitate to smash if a bad return is given.

    Racket: NS9K 3UG5

    String: BG 68Ti @ 23/lbs

    Grip: Dark blue Yonex Supergrap (hope to experiment with this soon)

    Game: Singles (Formerly doubles, but I have more experience in singles than doubles now.)

    Style: Stamina/placement. I usually try to make the opponent run, with deep clears near the backline and tight corner drops. I used to be an agressive player with a lot of smashing, but I sorta switched it up the last year or so. Actually, I'm trying to work some deceptive shots into my gameplay, but it's going to take some time.

    Racket: AT800 OF; 4UG3/ Ti-7 3UG3

    String: BG 65 @ 25lbs/ BG 70 @ 22lbs

    Grip: White Gamma Supreme Overgrip (Tennis grip; Works well with the badminton racket though)/ Yonex Supergrap (light blue)

    Play style : mostly drops and slices, don't smash so hard since a bout of tennis elbow! Prefer net play to rear court in doubles.
    Play : mainly doubles since an accident a few months ago

    Racket : Carlton Airblade Tour (Microlegend XL @ 24x22) and AT800 DEF (new, so factory tension and strings, BG65 @ 22lbs I think)
