BADMINTON: Sports for the over 50+ Crowd



The 2016 A-Z Blogging Challenge



My challenge for this year… I am planning to complete the A-Z Challenge this year by sharing an activity in which I still enjoy competing.





The Sport: BADMINTON (This is an outside sport.)

The Season: Spring/ Summer/ Fall

The Rules: Click Here

The Thrill: Thrill One: The best thrill would have to be the over-the-head-slam right at the opposing player’s hands, thus crippling his swing so that it ineffective, (Spoiler to those who find competition wrong- this does NOT cripple the opponent…It only cripples his ability to swing at the birdie.) Thrill Two: A well placed return for a diving save or a corner shot.

Full Disclosure: Your knees will feel the wear and tear of this sport. It is not a contact sport with the opponent, but likely if you are a passionate player… you will come in contact with the ground. Note to Cleaners- Grass stains are inevitable!



Written for the April (2016) Challenge: Blogging A to Z. Sports for the 50+ Crowd.
