"Badminton is my favourite sport. The main reason for this is that it's the first sport I found I was good at. It's a great game for beginners and experts. I've been playing for several years now. It's the sort of game where picking up the basics is quite easy (make contact between the racket and shuttle) but mastering the skills can take a lot longer. I would just like to say that badminton is not just indoor tennis. The two games are very ..." Read review

"...sure you’ve all heard of badminton before but just to remind you it’s the game which uses a shuttlecock, rackets and a net.

"...go for a game of badminton I would have laughed in your face. The truth is now I am going to play tonight and wish I could afford to go a lot more. To be honest I am lousy at badminton. I miss more times than I hit the thing but I still really like it. I have a stupid idea stuck in my head that it will help me get fit and I will lose some weight but in the mean time I will continue to enjoy it. Badminton is derived from the ancient game of ..."

Brilliant Badminton

Advantagesfitness and having fun

Disadvantagesyou will be wrecked but its worth it

"...members at all. Why? Because badminton doesn't get the coverage on TV it deserves. It's not a wonder we're not really all that good at badminton as a nation! Badminton is a fantastic sport it incorporates skill, fitness, accuracy and power. The basic rules of the game are very simple and are different for doubles as from singles. In singles the server always starts from the right and must hit it cross court to the other box on the other side ..." Read review
