Badminton is a game for all ages - even old, white-haired people still play! It’s fun and fast, although you wouldn’t necessarily think that when you feel the weight of the shuttlecock. Yes I agree they do have feathers but not all birds can fly!
I liken the game to learning to drive; once you have mastered the skill of serving, you then realise that you’ve got to hit the shuttlecock back to the opposition. Next, you have to take into account that standing in the same spot (as if glued to the floor) is not necessarily the thing to do as some canny players can either serve right to the back of the court or slyly drop shot just over the fence and you’re stumbling around the court five minutes after it’s landed on the floor!
Why not give it a try? It’s after school on a Wednesday. We’d love to see you.
