I don't know if anyone will freak out to me about this but this is honestly oen of and really

actually my favorite sport of all time.

It doesn't have any particular status for the most part I don't even follow anything professional or

know about it but I think it's great.

So any other fans out there?

Played a little bit back in the day. Has anyone heard of the game Pickleball? We used to play in High School and it was a ton of fun.

yes Pickelball is quite cool it's a variation on Badminton or rather Raquest sports in general... if you ahve Raquetball then you probably have Pickleball in there as well.

Everyone uses wikpedia of course these days in college at least I don't knwo how reliable it is in general but it seems to have a good run down of Raquet sports in general and then

Badminton in particular.

I also happen to prefer playing it to watching might as well get that ouf ot of the way.

I enjoyed badminton a lot but, now my eyesight has deteriorated and need to wear glasses. I don't have any sport glasses or contact lens so my ability to play the game is very limited now, cannot rally for a long time as well and I cannot catch a smash anymore. Used to be really good in middle school, I entered some tournaments as school representative. I do have a question for a long time regarding this game, Lin Dan or Lim Chong Wei, who is better?? Lin Dan absolutely destroy Lim Chong Wei in Olympics but Lim Chong Wei has upper hand in many top competition. He was no.1 for a long time too.
