Yesterday the EBC badminton club, of which I'm a member and former board member, organised its annual championship. Normally I would rank very low because I, together with my usual partner, are the only recreational players. But yesterday I even got to the cross finals! Some games were real thrillers. The most important things: I had a lot of fun playing, learned some new tricks while playing against people who were by far better than me and I also noticed that I'm getting better at my own game.

Today I went to see the A & B ranked badminton competitors in the Flemish Badminton Championship with my badminton partner Guy, who's also a friend of mine for more than 26 years now. Since I play the sport myself it was nice to see the people who are far better than me at work. I just like to play it recreational, although we also go for the win of course :-). Nothing as good as playing a couple of sets against equals after a day of sitting in front of a computer screen.

If you don't know the sport or haven't tried it yet I can really recommend it. It requires technique, you use practically every musscle in your body and it helps you to focus better.

You can learn more about it on wikipedia.

Grz, Kris.
