    I am assuming coops means the Badminton England Magazine. Anyone who can scan the pages in please post.

    Forgive me please for being blunt... but this just isn't badminton :eek:
    This is akin to football in an elevator or ice-hockey on grass.
    Is Badminton England so hard up for ideas that they must promote 'Beachminton'?

    Beach-minton?
    Argh!

    Pretty soon we'll be hearing about Beachminton England :rolleyes:

    Yes, your photographs do convey 'fun' but they also reinforce the impression that badminton is a backyard sport requiring as much skill as it takes to play catch with a Labrador Retriever :eek:

    Having said that, your pictures are of wonderful quality :)
    Congratulations.

    Hmm yeah same thing I thought.

    Maybe the next edition of the maagzine should show the statistics for badminton to show truly how hard it is?

    I agree with Oldhand - but congratulations :D

    Yeah, the sport of badminton doesn't need to be promoted as a back garden sport, show me someone hitting a huge jumpsmash or a diving save of a huge jumpsmash, that'll get people thinking this is a serious sport.

    Still, congratulations.

    Beachminton?.. its a good way to promote badminton though... maybe the weather there is to attract the crowd.

    Wrong clothes to wear - a little more revealing might be better ;)
