you are not going to believe this:
i took my niece out a few weeks ago to hit some balls around.
the weather was finally decent and warm and we had a good time.
she is 16 now and getting better all the time - i know it is just a matter of time before she beats me - but not yet.
anyway - we were at the park and there are 6 courts there - they keep them in good shape.
i looked over at the court behind us and my niece asked me "are they using badminton rackets?".
i looked and sure enough - they were using badminton rackets - not the wilson T-2000 but real badminton rackets.
blew me away. but i guess they did not know any better.
