Badminton At Woodbank, Aberdeen

SWINGING THE RACKET...

I thought I am done with badminton, I had not been playing for a few years already in Malaysia...  and now over here in Aberdeen, it seems I have to hold the racket again, I just cannot resist playing though the "skills" are no more there.... LOL... NO power, no accuracy and slow of course, really "rusty" ... feel kind of "shy" to be in the courts with new people, new grounds and learning from them. 

Seems this will be our regular hangout during the weekdays' evenings, at least twice a week to lose some sweat, real dripping sweat from the running..... otherwise, it is all about burning fats due to the coldness of the weather.  The weather makes me hungry very fast and I keep eating every hour or so...
Before entering the courts, we had a light tea at the Woodbanks club for Shell members....
A nice glass of hot coffee or was it cappucino?
No, it is not mine, I settled for lemon tea which I had forgotten to take... 
Two badminton courts.... 
After some warming up, the game starts....
Partnering with Mary who is the real good player... 
Ready to "kill".... LOL... 
Nice to meet with new friends from Brunei, Miri and Germany... 
Aaron waiting for the opponent to smash... 
And the evening ended one for the album... 
The blurry picture must be due to the shaky hands after a good match.. 
LOL...

  3. Of the 3 games, ping pong, tennis and badminton, I love the game of badminton the most, as tennis rackets are too heavy for me and I don't really like the ping pong game. I love to "aim" at my opponents and "smack" when playing badminton, LOL. I miss my badminton game days and we can spend hours just playing badminton.

  5. Yes, cold weather makes me hungry too - I would want to eat all the time...and because I will not be sweating as much, I will put on weight fast. Good that you go and play badminton there.
