There are many possible injuries one could potentially get as a result of playing badminton. The common ones are lower back pain, sprained ankle, tennis elbow and ligament tear.
Therefore, do not get too eager to start playing when you reach the badminton court. Spend a few minutes to warm up and stretch so that your muscles are loosened and are more flexible during your badminton session.
Exercise would be as normal as breathing in the wild setting. If we were not industriously finding food, building shelters and fighting off saber-toothed tigers we would not survive. Under those circumstances eating was the reward for exercise. In the modern world we don’t have to exercise to any extent to get our food. We may have cleverly changed our circumstances but we have not changed the rule that eating is the fuel and the reward for exercise. If you are not exercising you should not be eating… or at least doing very little of it. This is a natural law rarely quoted these days. Ignoring and violating it results in a penalty, obesity and disease.
When buying a badminton set, do compare the pros and cons of the different offers available. You would not want to be landed with a set that you are unhappy with. Some of the pros worth considering are lightweight structures, easy assembly and quality build. As for the cons, do check carefully for weak net poles that can easily bend. Avoid warped rackets too and do not purchase a set of shuttlecocks that have broken feathers. Damaged shuttles will fly erratically though the air, making it impossible to have a good game.
The badminton clear is the most common stroke, and it can be played from either forehand or backhand, as well as overhead or underarm. Regardless of exactly how you use the clear, the objective is to send the shuttle to the back of the court, forcing your opponent back away from the net to open up the forecourt.
Even moderate exertion for a body part over time can greatly increase its size and strength. Although I have lifted for decades (both sides of my body equally), my right shoulder and arm are dramatically larger than the left from tens of thousands of overhand swings of a badminton racket weighing only a few ounces. Many athletes develop significant musculature in the legs without ever lifting heavy weights. Softball pitchers can develop strength and size in the pitching arm almost double that of the other. Assuming you are reasonably lean, your weight reflects the capacity of your frame. A 150-pound person lifting 250 pounds is asking for trouble because 150 pounds is designed to hold 150 pounds.
A drop shot is done from the back of your court by hitting the shuttle to the front of your opponent’s court. A good badminton drop can be a good killer shot to win a rally. On the other hand, a drop shot can be considered defensive as well, because your opponent can’t do any offensive shots if you hit a good drop.
Knowing these ten rules of the game is vital before you start playing badminton. Other than these, it is good to know more about the laws governing the equipment that is to be used, for instance, the design or shape of the racket and shape and weight of the shuttlecock (that affects its speed). It’s amazing to learn that there is no rule specifying the height of the ceiling, but, common sense will tell you that a ceiling at low height would cause problems during high rallies.
