Badminton Jedi. Finally badminton made cool
Let’s face it, badminton isn’t a sport one would describe as, “cool.” The racquets are small, the projectile players hit is known as a “shuttlecock,” and if a sport is one both children and the elderly can excel at equally one has all the ingredients for a sport played by dorks. Or is it?
Played by single individuals or in teams of two, the goal of badminton is to score points by hitting the unfortunately named shuttlecock with a back and forth until it lands on one’s opponent’s half of the court.
A new, awesome, badminton concept would forever change my opinion of the sport, and I suspect would result in a new wave of individuals picking up the sport and playing it until their arms fall off.
The concept? Badminton Jedi.
That’s right, badminton Jedi. Shunning the traditional racquets used by players of badminton, users strike the shuttlecock with lightsabers!
I imagine the shuttlecock would need a redesign as the lightsaber would no doubt destroy the weak little shuttlecock employed by today’s badminton players.
That said, nothing has resulted in piquing my interest in badminton more than watching the video below. It’s amazing.
Are you a badminton player? If not, would you adopt the sport if you were able to play it using a lightsaber?
