You might not believe it,I played badminton last week,and it was my first time playing badminton.For some reason I didn't get to play badminton before,but I played last week ,that's something for me. It's the first time playing it and I've managed to break 75 for the course. Perhaps, but I've still got a long way to go before I can be really satisfied with my game. Practice makes perfect!

I like playing badminton. I usually go on a hiatus, like not playing it for two years straight but once I am in the court, I remember the moves. The only bad thing about not playing regularly is losing power. My right hand has lost its power, it can barely do smashes now. Welcome to badminton! =D

My mother and I used to play badmitton when I was a kid. We never kept score we just played for fun. As I got older I just stopped caring about playing much but I have been thinking about getting a set to play with my kiddo.

I was talking to my kids about badmington the other day, I used to play it at school and used to really enjoy it, I said that I would try and show them how to play it. I have not played it for the longest time though so I may have a few problems!!

I've truthfully never played it. i have seen the game being played before, and it is kind of like tennis, but, using a different type of racket, and ball. plus, you hit the ball across the net, and the other player does the same. one who drops the ball, will lose point, and the other will gain an extra point.

I played badminton when I was younger and loved it! It's been a long time since I have played though.

oh yes... i love badminton and had been playing the game since i am a kid... i had not been playing it for long time now and i guess my play will be rotten by now... you are right by saying that practice makes perfect... and i definitely intend to practice my skills again to make it perfect... take care and have a nice day...

I really enjoyed playing it when I was a youngster, but haven't played it in quite a few years. I do have a couple of boys of my own that enjoyed it...until they decided to use the rackets for hitting things which they weren't designed to hit, such as tennis balls, stones and such.

Yes I like badminton. It's simpler and easier than tennis yet it's still a vigorous workout. You need someone to play with though. Unlike basketball, you can shoot hoops by yourself.

I used to love badminton! As a child, my family always had a set and when our net fell apart we played, anyway! My mom was very good at it and we had a lot of fun. There were six people in my family and when Dad was home we could have teams of three. We never kept score, I didn't even know people did keep score! I'm glad you discovered this sport. It's cheap, fun and great exercise!

When i was in my Country, my friends and I use to play every weekend for 2 hours in day or more, It's the best exercise for me too since I can twist all part of my body! LOL, I miss it so much and will try if I can play it here! I hope I will know someone in this area who also love that game! I wish!
