Badminton at Rotary Park

posted by My Saskatoon    |   August 19, 2014 16:41

Growing up, badminton was an annual unit in junior high and high school gym class. Once a year, we’d arrive at gym class to find the badminton nets set up.  We’d happily select our racquets and birdies, and prepare for two weeks of badminton tournaments. 

I can’t deny it was one of my favourite units in gym class (besides square dancing). There’s just something about badminton… it’s like tennis but less running, similar to volleyball but less painful on the arms. So when my brother-in-law mentioned that he was coaching a badminton team this winter, the wonderful memories of spiking those birdies came rushing back. And so badminton was added to my husband and I's summer to-do list!

When the weather warmed up, we tracked down a set of racquets and birdies (although it was difficult – apparently we weren’t the only ones wanting to play badminton!) for under $10 at Dollarama! On a gloriously hot day, we hit those birdies around at Rotary Park. Oh man! It was as great as I imagined! I’m proud to say that my husband and I volleyed that birdie back and forth 200 times without it touching the ground. 

If you are looking for a fun way to soak up a summer evening, I highly recommend grabbing a buddy and heading down to Rotary Park to bat a birdie around!
