I have played badminton for almost 15 years and consider it to be the most rewarding sport which can be accessed by almost anybody. Unlike tennis, football, or rugby, for example, badminton is very easy to pick up - at the beginner level, everything happens slowly! Very rewarding! That said, like other sports, to get to a good standard can be very challenging and requires dedication. Surprisingly, i know many people who have achieved an exceptionally high standard within only a few months of practice- right up to National level with the proper coaching.
Badminton is a relatively cheap sport for anyone who is looking to lose weight, get fit, socailise, compete, or just have a bit of fun. In fact, more people play badminton that any other racket sport in the UK, and you burn off twice as many calories in one hour of badminton than you do in 1 hour of tennis!
If your anything like me, you will become addicted very quickly!- ENJOY!
Welcome to Ciao....hubby and I used to play badminton quite a bit, although I used to get upset as he always beat me....we really must take it up again as it is fun. Have a look at some other reviews to get an idea of the detail needed to get even more helpful ratings. Best wishes, MaryX
