They love their badminton over here. We rent courts every Friday and a significant portion of NI plays. A few weeks back we held an internal tournament. We divided up into teams of 10 to 12 people. With a positive spin on it, the team that I played on won third place. Since there were only 3 teams, it was also last place.
They prefer an unairconditioned gym so that the air movement doesn’t effect the flight of the shuttlecock (Yes, I said shuttlecock. Quit snickering).
Height does help. Unfortunately, that is all that I have going for me. I bought my own racket. It didn’t help either. Here is the leader of the winning team receiving their trophy.
