We hope to share that joy of playing and that sense of well-being with all those around us and invite anyone to join the sport. Speaking of connecting with people, in this podcast episode, we speak to Ferdi Mak. Ferdi is long-time friend of ours, who we would not have met if it weren't for badminton.
