Today we're very excited to let you all know that we are releasing a podcast, The Badminton Podcast, which will be live at 6pm! What I'd like to do in this post is to let everyone know why we decided to start this podcast, what it's all about and how you can get involved too.
Looking back at my journey through badminton, I feel like there are some unspoken rules on court that I learnt mostly from observation. They might be simple and you may already know them but read on if you're not sure. Things have also changed as the years went by. To prevent you from embarrassment, here are three tips that will help you become a true sportsman/sportswoman of the game!
Just last month, I was lucky enough to attend the 2019 World Championships in Basel, Switzerland, as the team coach & manager for Australia. It was an amazing experience to say the very least, and in this piece, I’d like to outline the differences between attending the World Championships (and other major badminton tournaments) as an athlete compared to a coach.
When I was first introduced to badminton in my mid-teens, I had been playing tennis for most of my life. Because of the low participation of badminton in South Australia, most of the badminton I learnt in the first couple of years was self taught. Hence, even these days I find myself constantly learning better ways to play the sport.
Something that we didn't discuss in last week's article, How To Choose a Badminton Racquet is the weight and grip size of the racquet. The reason why you would want to know is because most racquets come in various weights and grip sizes.
So you're looking to make that first racquet purchase OR you're looking to get a new racquet to replace your old one and don't know where to start. There are so many different racquets out there and it can be confusing if you're unfamiliar with the brands and types that exist
