Badminton is my favorite sport. I like to play badminton because it is fun and challenging. Badminton requires a person to react fast and make decision fast to win the game. I am constantly improving my skills in badminton. Most of the time, I will play badminton at the backyard of my house with my father. Sometimes, I will go to the badminton court to play with my friends. I think that I am a better player in double and I am not as good in single game. Do you play badminton? Do you like it?

I do play badminton. Im not good at it though and I prefer to play informally. I mean there wouldnt be any strict rules, we can make up our rules as we go but the mainstay rule would be to get the shuttlecock across to the opponent without hitting the net. We used to have a rule to see who can whack the shuttlecock the highest and still be able to get it across. The court doesnt matter too.LOL!

Hi, Sometimes, I like to play badminton without rules too. I play without rules because I want to train my accuracy to hit the shuttlecock.

I play badminton but now I seldom do, I really miss playing badminton. I'm good at doubles like you and I'm really bad at single game. You're right it will make you react fast and have decision fast to win the game. Plus the fact it help to loose some of weight and help to burn fat! My sister and I usually play badminton with my freinds or her friends or with our cousins but now, we are quite busy on our work and our schedules don't jive so we cant plan to play badminton.

I used to play in high school, in gym class. But I don't anymore. My fiance does a lot more though. He plays with some of his good friends.

It is good to play badminton to do some exercise. Sometimes, I do not care whether I play very good or not, I just want to do some exercise. So, I think you should spend sometime to play badminton as exercise.

My fiance plays mainly for fun. It is true that he wants to watch his weight and all. But whether he wins a game or not, so long as he's had fun, that's good enough for me.

aside from cycling i also fond of playing badminton. it's a good exercise because you're able to sweat much in that way you're burning a lot of fats in your body.

I like to play sports that make me sweat but I do not like football because it is quite dangerous. I like badminton because it is much safer.

I like badminton. But these I don't really play very often. I used to play a lot when I was younger and usually I'd play in my back garden with various members of my family. I was once in the school badminton team too!

Hey there, I play badminton too, but only with friends nowadays. Like you, I used to play badminton with my siblings and cousins in the front yard. It's one of our favourite past-times back in my hometown.

i like badminton too. i used to play it when i was in school. actually, i think most, if not all sports promote fast reaction and quick thinking. i used to play doubles too in school. however, now i play more than just badminton. i play a variety of sports such as basketball, soccer and rugby. i also love to run. basically, i think keeping fit is important, and sports is a very good way to do so. Just don't get injured in the process

Yeah, we need to be careful in sports. It would be bad if we hurt ourselves in sport.

I'm eighteen years old and i still play badminton. I like to play this sport because it's a sport that you can as a team. Sometimes my friends, cousins and myself we play badminton four against four. That's really exciting and sometimes it turns out to a bad moment because we tease each other and sometimes we get angry and leave the game or sometime there is fighting. But all this form part of the game and we have to accept it. The more we play the more we get experienced. We share most of the time good moments and that the importance of playing, everyone having a good time. Playing badminton is a good way of keeping the body in a healthy status. Badminton is a good sport that i like very much.

i was able to play badminton when my husband invite me to play with him. it's actually a good exercise because almost all of your body parts are moving. but my problem is i don't have the right timing in hitting the shuttlecock i always hit the air.lol. but maybe with regular practice i will able to hit the shuttlecock more.

It is quite hard to hit the shuttlecock at the first few times playing badminton. Practice more and you will play better.

When younger I played badminton with my colleagues twice a week. We usually played at a rented court in an old school boy association hall. We normally spent two hours there. We really felt relaxed after sweating a lot when the game was over. We enjoyed eating and chatting at a nearby food court after the game.

Yeah, sometimes, I will go to near-by food court to eat after playing badminton. It is quite enjoyable.

I love playing badminton but no one around here plays it so I don't play as often. I really get into the game so when I'm done playing it looks like I had just finished running a marathon.

I played badminton when I was in high school. I actually wasn't really too bad at it. I could whack a birdie pretty good. I didn't really ever play it outside of school. I don't think it is the type of game that most people randomly decide to play. I think that it gets thrown into volleyball sets so people think they are getting something great because you are getting another game, but most people don't really sit around thinking, "gee, you know a game of badminton would really hit the spot"! Kind of like bowling. Not to say that it isn't an enjoyable game to play, just not really addictive to most people.
