Why I’m Mad At Badminton
I don’t know about you, but I’m very rarely able to leave the Badminton court feeling really happy with the way I’ve played. I know that to some extent it’s because I am by my very nature a perfectionist in every thing I do, but also just because I can’t just switch my game on and off like that.
Some days I can be absolutely brilliant and other days I can be totally awful and that’s how I played last night… awful.
But the biggest problem for me yesterday was that I just couldn’t get in to the right frame of mind… I wasn’t up for it and to be honest we should have won hands down. The guys we were playing weren’t anywhere near as good.
But that is the problem.
When I’m playing someone that I feel is not as good as me, I completely switch off and I think I just try to coast through. But it doesn’t work, in fact it never works out like that, I just end up looking rubbish.
It’s so frustrating because I can be a good player, but I only tend to play well when I’m faced with a tough game. The tougher the better. In fact if it’s one that we’ve no chance of winning, I’m at my best, go figure??
So I’m not sure how to beat this one, perhaps you’ve got some suggestions that might help me or anyone else.
