Playing Badminton – Are You Making a Spectacle of Yourself?
So, you’ve got all the latest trendy microfibre clothing, supportive and grippy footwear, the best racket money or your bank balance can afford, you’ve signed up to this website, got yourself fitter as a result, you’re playing Badminton in the best conditions and have a good rapport with your partner.
And at a crucial point in a game you miss the shuttle. You offer profuse apologies to your partner and probably come out with ‘never saw the shuttlecock’ or ‘where on earth did that come from?’
Obviously it’s something to do with the lighting or the background colour of the walls.
Perhaps you’re having an ‘off day,’ you’re tired from a hard day at work, may be you’ve not done your Badminton warm up properly. Any excuse will do and it’s usually those shots that you always get back that start getting missed.
Ever thought of getting your eyes tested?
If you already wear spectacles, perhaps it’s been some time since your eyes were checked. It seems silly and hardly related to playing Badminton I know but how about getting your eyes fit.
I suggest that your eyes are the one thing in your Badminton training that you will have completely forgotten about.
Ever wondered why you seem to hit so many frame shots, why is it so many shots are not being hit clean?
It’s pretty simple really, if you can’t see the shuttlecock clearly when you’re playing Badminton how on earth can you hit it properly?
It’s just a thought – think about it.
