I think it is a waste to just throw them away. Any idea guys?
Well, not very inventive, but I use cut tubes as pencil holder, paperclip holder and coupon holder.
When the kids were younger, they used them to make rocket ships and tunnels for toy cars.
Build a bed if your wife or partner kick you out of the bedroom or lock you out of the house.
I use mine to keep some small badminton accessories. Currently I have replacement over grips, 2 packets of string, foldable scissors, pen and a small roll of tape. I also have a resealable bag with first aid stuff that I shove in the tube. The tube keeps it all organized and stops my scissors and pen from destroying my bag.
@xzavire , that's great idea for the first aid kit. Thanks!
Why? Use it as backup racket, of course!
(Anyone remember Lin Dan and Bao Chu Lai's exhibition game? Was that in LA?)
Did they actually use the tubes to play?!
For a point or two, yeah.
Can't really think of a sustainable re-use of the tubes.
Good thing is that they are mostly made of cardboard and should be ready to recycle. Unlike tennis balls tubes which are made of plastic..
And damn good accuracy and power they had too... just with the flattened tubes!
I use the tube for my refurbished shuttles. Yes I am pulling feathers and gluing them together again. We don't reuse them in club play, only for warm up so I use some when playing with my boy, and stocks are pilling up.
it can be glued and used as a pennies box
Could be used to train smashes like how Lee jae Bok teaches..but the troublesome thing is that you need someone else also
I have seen kids glued 3 of them together, tied a string to hang across the shoulder, and used it as a manual shuttle dispenser for training.
that's a brilliant idea.
Camera stand, "target board", obstacles, keep usable recycled shuttles, simple ruler.
My friend has his own Origami business & uses empty tubes to ship things like Origami flowers.
Saves him a bit on packaging.
