Back in high school, I participated in the badminton games in my freshman and senior years. I didn’t play well during both times. In fact, I am being crushed as if I’m a beginner even though I can hit the shuttlecock fairly well. My racket back then was a Carlton.
Now, I’m playing way better than before. I can run from the back of the court to the front line to return a drop shot and I’m now using a Wilson racket. I can consistently perform jump smashes. I can make a lot of feints and confuse the opponent. The only thing that is missing is a good backhand hit. I can hit it very good but 99% of the time it’s very bad. That’s my target for this year, to improve my backhand.
I have played a couple of sports ever since my body became athletic enough. I first started playing basketball in elementary. I practiced dribbling even when inside the house that’s why I was able to break my mom’s favorite vase then. Me and my classmates would meet up at 4am to jog and to play basketball. When high school came, I got into badminton. In college, I got hooked into football/soccer and volleyball in addition to basketball.
When I started working, I regularly played badminton on weekends and I believe I have improved in some ways. I got introduced to ultimate frisbee too thanks to Macha and Ian =). Overall, my favorite sport to play are basketball, badminton and ultimate frisbee. Favorite sport to watch would be soccer, basketball and badminton.
