My husband and I play badminton once a week, and I really enjoy it. It is a great way to get some exercise and I think that is fun to play. When I was younger my brother and I often played badminton together, and we both enjoyed it a lot. Now my brother has started playing golf instead and we haven't badminton for years. That is one of the reasons why I am very happy that my husband and I have started playing badminton together, because I missed it a lot.

coz it combines the strength of a wrestler, accuracy of a sniper, a kunf-fu master's flexibility, a marathon runner's endurance, tai chi's gentleness. they all taken to deliver a smooth targeted smash or even to defeat opponents on endurance race

I like to play badminton. Comparisons of speed and athletic requirements Statistics such as the 206 mph smash speed, below, prompt badminton enthusiasts to make other comparisons that are more contentious. For example, it is often claimed that badminton is the fastest racket sport.[19] Although badminton holds the record for the fastest initial speed of a racket sports projectile, the shuttlecock decelerates substantially faster than other projectiles such as tennis balls. In turn, this qualification must be qualified by consideration of the distance over which the shuttlecock travels: a smashed shuttlecock travels a shorter distance than a tennis ball during a serve. Badminton's claim as the fastest racket sport might also be based on reaction time requirements, but arguably table tennis requires even faster reaction times. There is a strong case for arguing that badminton is more physically demanding than tennis, but such comparisons are difficult to make objectively due to the differing demands of the games. Some informal studies suggest that badminton players require much greater aerobic stamina than tennis players, but this has not been the subject of rigorous research.[20] A more balanced approach might suggest the following comparisons, although these also are subject to dispute: Badminton, especially singles, requires substantially greater aerobic stamina than tennis; the level of aerobic stamina required by badminton singles is similar to squash singles, although squash may have slightly higher aerobic requirements. Tennis requires greater upper body strength than badminton. Badminton requires greater leg strength than tennis, and badminton men's doubles probably requires greater leg strength than any other racket sport due to the demands of performing multiple consecutive jumping smashes. Badminton requires much greater explosive athleticism than tennis and somewhat greater than squash, with players required to jump for height or distance. Badminton requires significantly faster reaction times than either tennis or squash, although table tennis may require even faster reaction times. The fastest reactions in badminton are required in men's doubles, when returning a powerful smash.

yes badminton is really a great form of exercise, for some adult or let us say heavy adult, it is the way on how they loss weight, some play for socialization, others for improving lifestyle. in playing badminton you will sweat a lot and your fats will easily dispose through sweats, it will also cleans your body as you drink and sweat..
