What’s the danger in hitting a feathery shuttlecock back and forth, running forwards and backwards, then left and right and forwards and backwards again?
I can name two.
I hit my right knee while chasing a drop shot (that I managed to return quite beautifully) and hit my crotch a bit with the head of the racquet after a slicing the air while attempting a ‘smash’.
All I could do was laugh when the second thing happened. Took a few minutes to get the pains out of my body and the breather got me going again.
I guess badminton’s a contact sport, after all.
And I pray that THAT racket incident won’t affect any chances of me having kids.
That’s it, I’m getting some sleep. I was headbanging in front of the monitor while writing this post.
