I used to really enjoy playing badminton. We would put up a net and play in the back yard.
Badminton. The gentleman’s game
Been playing tennis for ever.
I do like badminton, don’t play it that much.
Racquetball is more my speed.
badminton is for fat fucks who can't play tennis
Badmiton is the dumbest game! Right up there with wiffle ball.
I LOVE tennis!
I just like saying shuttlecock.
Who in their right mind would name it that? Lol
Tennis 🎾 is fun, but badminton 🏸 is more of a fun, friendly backyard sport. The kind where you can drink beer, bbq and play with the kiddos. I like both, but definitely play more badminton than I do tennis.
I enjoy a friendly game of badminton
Between these two, badminton. But racquetball is the real king of all racquet sports.
I prefer tennis.
I’d rather play tennis again, but I haven’t played in almost 30 years.
I like badminton. The pace is more leisurely, as befits a recreational activity, and you can set up and play it almost anywhere. Tennis almost always involves an elevated heart rate and sweating, and a drive to a special place where you can play it.
Leisurely? Badminton? I enjoy the sport but it's highly competitive and intense!
Higher net, lighter birdie, wa-la...leisurely.
Perhaps it would feel leisurely if I tied my competitors spritely legs together and forbade them to leap and spike the birdie into the far corners! Smirk.
Jumping is discouraged, except as necessary to keep the shuttle in play. Spiking is considered bad form, and as in just-for-fun backyard volleyball, is strictly forbidden.
I must head to Washington. These Californians are clearly BADmitton Ruffians!
I applaud your
Back yard badminton is more about keeping it going and having fun. In college, I had it for a pe class, and it wasn’t as friendly. Since I’m not competitive, I prefer a fun, relaxing game.
I'll suggest that to my teens. Perhaps sip a cup of tea or a Tody during volley's
I never got the hang of Tennis, but I was the best at Badminton in my P.E. class. It's much easier to pick up and play anywhere...you don't even need a net.
Both are fun but I like the competitiveness of tennis more. Feels less like a family picnic and more like a real workout and competition.
