    I recently see you in the entertainment news. Even the host mentioned that you are now very into badminton. The news showed you with an injured wrist! Hope you have a speedy recovery. :p

    Hi Sally,

    I'm a big badminton fan, just like you, that's why I'm here. But I also play squash fairly often. So from what I can tell, everything you say about badminton also applies to squash. To quote you - "about outsmarting your opponent with speed and mental calculation so it benefits mind and body". Please give squash a try. It's miuch more than just hitting the ball against the wall. You may find them equally fun.

    BTW, at the age you mentioned, I think the worst injury is a ruptured achilles tendon, not tennis elbow. Ask Eric Tsang if you have a chance, he probably will tell you.

    Hope to meet you on the court one day.

    You've got to be kidding. Squash is a war of attrition :) Reason I kept to badminton was the excitement of seeing the "smash"!:D It's an extra dimension to the game that squash doesn't have.

    Oh, sad to hear that you're sufferring from tennis elbow now. I think I know how frustrating it can be. Had it a few years ago and end up have to take a complete rest for 4 months or so. Now it's okay but have to wear an elblow support whenever I play badminton, squash or tennis, for protection and precaution if nothing else. The bad thing is I don't feel comfortable swinging the clubs anymore. Guess won't be 100% anymore. :(

    So if you can allow your elbow to have a complete rest, for that i mean put away your racquets, for a couple of months, i guess you should be fine. Hope you get over it soon and enjoy badminton to its fullness again. :)

    Doublewing is spot on about squash. Unless you know how to play it well, you'll just see it as hitting a ball against a wall. Squash is a tremendous sport requiring most of the attributes of badminton (footwork, anticipation, stamina, racket control and skill).

    You could work on your footwork in the meantime :p Doesn't require you to swing a racket.

    Oh, I'm not saying sqaush does not have the attributes of - footwork, anticipation, stamina, racket control and skill. It has all of those. Once you get to a high level, the rallies become very prolonged. Badminton has an extra dimension that is not so available to players of squash.
    Badminton has variations in the game which are available to even occasional palyers of the game.

    Ive only started to pick up squash in the last few months, but becoz of my "not so strong" baddy, tennis and maths (trig :p ) background, after learning how to hit to the backwall, Ive managed to kick everybody including the guys in local team.... I dont see that as competitive as badminton and smashing in squash is just like another rally (not an instant kill) but the good thing is that one can play alone. Just my 2cents.. :D

    Dude, you should be awarded BF's most fanatical badder under injury. Your determination not to quit the game and to use your left side is just amazing. Do you look at life differently now that you can use left and right side? :)
