    Would you find it disrespectful if your opponent did this? I'm trying to get some study time in with my exercise.

    I personally wouldn't be able to concentrate to an audio book whilst playing badminton, but you might be able to.

    Alternatively you could just try sleeping with your study books as a pillow. Sort of a whole revision diffusion kinda thing :D.

    How would you listen to audio books when on court? Headphones, ear phones, bluetooth earpiece?

    I don't think it's disrespectful but I am curious what devices you would use.

    True.

    Also, if your planning on using headphones or earphones, either you've got some damn good headphones/earphones or you're not playing hard enough.

    Interesting - do report on the effectiveness and any practical problems when hitting the shuttle.

    I have never tried it myself. There's a video of Park Joo Bong speaking into a portable mic when he's doing a coaching session with the French team. He's feeding them and has the mic on at the same time.

    Would you mind if your opponent wearing sun glasses. I don't want my opponents know where I am looking.

    In Tennis it is. You see that from time to time (Sam Stosur comes to my mind...).

    Don't think it's any effective. Sports need focus and by diverting your focus away, you'll probably lessen the effectiveness of learning and increase the potential of injuries and the ire of your fellow partner (unless you are playing singles). Your opponent may feel insulted that you aren't taking him seriously.

    Then again, that's my view on it. Perhaps you may be successful in getting it work though.
