Default Re: The right way to play Badminton

This thread was on for the past so many years and i stumbled upon this only today, that too whilst i was searching for something related to Badminton on google. Phew !.

I spent the day reading thru all the very informative pages and a huge thanks to all those who contributed to this.

I used to be playing during my "Single" days at Pune, and remember representing Thermax in the corporate tournaments, that used to be held at the Model Colony wooden courts, cant remember the name of the club. Proudly used to be going strong till the Semi's those days. My partner and I were a good combo in the doubles and we used to pack quite a punch.

All of my badminton play was self learning, experimenting and playing and playing. After almost 2 decades, i chanced upon one of my apartment co-resident who was leaving one morning with a kit bag, and a casual enquiry revealed they were playing regularly in a club at JP Nagar. There started my journey all over again - ordered a Yonex NanoRay 10 Racket, and a Nivia non marking shoe.

Its been 2 months now, and we regularly play in the mornings. I havent enjoyed my mornings so much before. I am slowly, but surely gaining back my shots, though my movements are sluggish ( age ! ). I am sure that it will do me a world of good as far as my personal fitness and stamina and the passion for this game continues to sustain.

And yes - i read about the headahces for Mayank. I had the same ones too, last month. It used to persist for a few hours. I was advised Electral by one of the members in the club and that worked well for me too.

So glad i chanced upon this thread.

To the players in Bengaluru, can you recommend
1. Gut for a Yonex 2U G4
2. A place to get it regutted in South Bengaluru
Thanks in advance!

A fellow bhpian and I play on and off. He books courts using the 'playo', a boon for players who do not have memberships or do not play regularly to justify the membership costs. The costs range around 400rs for two hours on a synthetic court.

Wonderful thread. Has anyone gone through the following video

Sorry the video is in Tamil but is self explanatory. Has anyone observed this in Mavis 350 shuttles?

I ve been playing most weekdays early mornings with a bunch of guys from my office when Im in town.
I m enjoying the game after a gap of maybe 25 odd years.
Great fun.
Bought a couple of Yonex Duora 88 racquets and a bunch of these Mavis 350 green cap shuttles.
Nice stuff.
