I can not find enough players, I can teach beginners how to improve with basics, 20 pounds per head, if we can get 2 then 10 pounds per head, if you beat me by the game, it will be free. :)
With some fun sporty but relaxin badminton in the park. As this is a real sporting event - new tier 4 covid restrictions do not apply. Max 4 people for doubles or alternating singles.
(can learn Chinese language or lead you into Chinese community and culture and internet circle)
If you love playing badminton as much as I do and fancy a fun friendly knockabout in the park then you know what to do.
Yes it s impossible to play serious badminton outdoors so this will just be a fun knock in the sun using special newly launched "Air Shuttlecocks" specifically designed with NASA research for outdoor play and endorsed by the Badminton World Federation. Unlike traditional feathers (or plastics) - they are suppose to be more aerodynamic, wind resistant and given their more stable flight trajectory - better suited for sustaining rallies in outdoor space - we ll see! Best of all we can hit using our existing rackets we use for feathers.
Whilst there wont be any serious competitive games or real courts - sorry but please no pure beginners as it s hard enough to sustain a rally indoors in draftless stable air pressure conditions with absolute newbies let alone in the much more challenging outdoor environment. You must have played badminton before and be fit/physically active to cover returns!
Please bring your own racket, I ll have my emergency backup spare with me but with safety concerns it s preferable probably not to share it with more than one person. We will aim for both singles & doubles play.
The event is subject to dry weather on the day, if deemed unsuitable, will reschedule forward or backwards based on the weather forecast at the time. If the event is still listed here at least 1 hour before scheduled time then it is going ahead.
