The recent IPC Badminton session was one that I have been looking forward for a while. As someone who is a huge fan of watching badminton games, I also enjoy playing on court.
Almost everyone who went for the IPC badminton event played like a professional player. From the way they smashed and served the shuttlecocks, I could foresee their chances of winning national competitions hahaha.
The courts at Ngee Ann Polytechnic were located at a humongous indoor sports hall and it is probably one of the more conducive environment to hold a proper game.
The funniest moments that we had on court were the moments when someone got smashed by the shuttles. (Not once, but multiple times. Hehehe)
To sum it up, I definitely enjoyed my time at the session and will be looking forward to the next IPC event.
It has been a long time since I have touched my badminton racket. When I was searching for my badminton racket, it was in the corner of my room collecting dust and I was thankful that luckily the strings are all intact hahah.
During the badminton game, I could feel my muscles straining with each smash. It was also slightly challenging to block the opponent’s smashes as the shuttlecock was flying across the air like a rocket. However, to my surprise, I have caught most of them and i realised that my reaction was pretty fast too.
During the game, we were trying all types of funny rules. For example, playing with our left hand and serving the shuttlecocks in many different ways.
I really enjoyed my time at the IPC event and I cannot wait for the next one.
