Badminton Latest News
Hello. I am considering buying new shoes for fencing(non-fencing shoes), but I got some problems with deciding which one to buy. I know that there are tons of posts about this topic but most of those shoes are out of my reach. That's why I decided to create a new post.
I think I have to say that I have wide feet.
Mizuno Wave Fang SL Badminton Shoes
It has rounded heels and seem like provide good heel cushioning, but I'm concerned about overall height of the shoe and middle part doesn't touching the ground.
Asics Gel Rockets
I've been considering Asics Gel Rocket 7. People who use them say that they like the shoe. It seem like they provide good heel cushioning.
Mizuno Cyclone Speed
It seems like have good heel cushioning, and also its closer to the ground which is an advantage I suppose. But its sides seem like won't hold too long.
Thanks in advance!submitted by /u/M-Fu to r/Fencing
Hi, I've been a fan of badminton for a long time. However, I've just been following professional tourneys' matches for almost a year. I see that BWF official channel is only airing matches from the main court (court 1) and not from the first day on top of that. I've found some sites that provide some other live matches but I think they are doing it illegally (record the matches from the original source and broadcast it on their own site). Some ask for donation no less. I wonder if there are original sites that stream the match legally. Thank you.submitted by /u/kana4seiyuu to r/badminton
Heyooo, my name is Crystal, nice to meet you !
So, I’m gonna cut to the chase, I kinda struggle with sleeping so I’m looking for someone who’ll call me and we can just chat and talk until I pass out. And hopefully we could become friends from that !
It’s a weird request, I know.
A little about me :
- I’m still in highschool.
- Art and Sports are big parts of my life, I adore em’
- Drawing, Painting, Photography and Music are my art related interests !
- I play Basketball, Volleyball and Badminton (-:
- I fricken adore Netflix and just watching shows and stuff
Feel free to message me? I’d rather use discord to talk further !submitted by /u/various-moons to r/MakeNewFriendsHere
It’s the long weekend here and I’m hoping to be able to meet some new people from Vancouver, BC. I’m currently finishing up my business diploma in accounting and will be looking to jump back into working in the new year.
I used to be big into gaming but ever since I went back to school, I’ve had less time, but I still dabble on Overwatch and Monster Hunter World every now and then. I still follow the League of Legends pro scene though as watching is always more relaxing. Nowadays (with all that time gained from not gaming lol), I usually like to exercise. I’m pretty lean but I’m looking to pack on a few pounds. I like to swim or play badminton if I’m not going to the gym. Sometimes it’s nice but being all skinny all the time kinda sucks. Somebody please help… T_T
And if I’m really not doing any of the above, I’m probably just relaxing the day away and researching about new places to visit (Got my eyes set on Japan again). I like listening to music (and as I write this, I got my Backstreet Boys jamming on Spotify lol) and playing board games since I really enjoy being able to socialize with friends too.
So if you want someone to study with, game with, exercise with, or just someone to be able to chat with daily or even join for board games, come on down and send me a message. Hope to chat with all you awesome people soon!submitted by /u/Fayph to r/r4r
I'm a Chinese American male citizen who did high school in Canada. Since it seems like I'm an international, I'd rather go for private universities than public. I'm looking for an electrical engineering, software engineering or computer science major. Since I live in Canada, I'm mostly looking at canadian schools and small american schools.
Size: ~1000 students w/ graduating class size of ~250. School is ranked about 2nd to 5th (depending on source) in city of nearly 1 million. Our school doesn't rank students.
GPA: 92/100 UW
Senior year GPA predicted to be ~96/100.
At my school, we have "ap courses" but they last 2 semesters starting in gr11 finishing in this semester of gr 12. Because of this, I haven't finished learning the content for the ap tests and will be taking them after I submit my application. I plan on talking AP chem, physics, and calc (likely AB). AP CSA I self studied. I took as many ap courses as possible except for english (2 sems of AP phys, math, chem, and only one sem of AP bio). The rest are considered the second highest level difficulty. I also did 2 years of french in high school (I'm pretty bad at it especially compared to peers) and about 4 years of french before that.
1460 (680W, 780M) w/ 18 essay (junior summer)
1500 (720W, 780M) w/ 16 essay (2nd try senior summer)
Subject SAT: 800 Math II, 780 Chem (1st try a few weeks ago)
ACT: predicted 33-34 (might not submit)
School badminton team and track and field (100m, shotput) gr 10.
Violin for 10 years, ~2hrs of practise a day.
First violin in city's youth orchestra.
Performed with a small ensemble. Had a few solos.
Multiple violin performance awards including a city wide competition at the junior level and a provincial finalist award at the intermediate level. Recently haven't been doing as much violin thus these awards are 1year+ old.
Tutor for physics, comp sci, and math. About a 4hr per week commitment. Could increase the # of students if it would look good.
Founder/president of math club.
Some meh math competition awards (i.g 75 percentile) from gr 9 & 10. These contests were uwaterloo onces such as the pascal and the fermat.
Directly created the curriculum for and taught a class of 20 in an introduction to python course during senior summer.
About 60 volunteer hours (mostly tutoring and badminton coach).
Physics teacher: predicted 7/10.
Math teacher: predicted 8.5/10.
These predictions are based on my mark compared to peers.
Talking about balancing school and violin, violin competitions, and maybe computer science. 6.5/10 essays. Writing is not my forte and should be pretty average.
For Canadian universities, they look at your top 6 senior marks. These will most likely be 4 gr12 marks and 2 gr 11 marks. They also usually care less about EC's. I'm "in province" i guess with uToronto and Queens but not Mcgill. Also, would it be better if I asked for a third rec from my chem teacher if my mark is good? Since the deadline for canadian universities is late January, let me know if there's anything I can do to improve my chances.submitted by /u/granite_towel to r/ReverseChanceMe

Hi! I’m looking into buying a racket after using my clubs rackets for a while now.
I have a rather defensive play style and am able to stand up against some of the tougher opponents smashes, so I’d need something lightweight and was looking at the Yonex Voltic FX 5
Has anyone used the racket, or have any ideas on other cheap-ish rackets I can use? Any help is appreciated, Thank You guys!submitted by /u/KJay-san to r/badminton
Hey, looking for an interesting girl to talk to. Someone who enjoys gaming (Overwatch, Black Ops 4, occasional League/FFXIV, VR, whatever new releases are, old games, whatever) and the gym is a plus, as these are massive hobbies of mine - but not necessary.
I am muscular/fit and enjoy gaming, the gym (déja vu right?), yoga, reading, socialising, sports when I can fit them in (especially things like tennis/badminton), and other stuff. I have an inquisitive mind and enjoy talking about anything (unless the topic is how much you hate me), and I am an energetic and passionate person in general. Despite lack of exciting punctuation.
I'm very open to romantic possibilities, but if we get on well as people but not as anything more, that's cool too. Pic and you get mine!submitted by /u/Raenryong to r/GBr4r

Anybody in the SS area play badminton or know where to play? I'm relatively new to the sport but love it.
Thanks neighbors!submitted by /u/SL8Rfan to r/MontgomeryCountyMD
My drops are really good and so is the cross court play, but I have a lot of trouble with smashes. I either bang them in the net or they are really slow. when I sometimes hit a good smash and the opponent is somehow able to defend it, I am not able to recover as I use a lot of energy to smash, my stamina level is good and it’s improving. What should I do to improve my smashes
Also I use a yonex arcsaber whose strong suit is the control that it provides the player, should I switch to a voltaic or muscle power so that I get power behind my smashes ?submitted by /u/dabber1234 to r/badminton
Im wanting a new racket and wanting to take a step up from the Senston n80 that I’ve been using for a while
I like light weight rackets preferably under 90g. I’m not bothered with the brand. I also would like a racket with high quality grip because my current cheap racket’s grips hurts after long sessions.
Any suggestions? Thanks.submitted by /u/Bqis to r/badminton
I know a lot of people here are tying to get more disciplined with learning to code or be more productive at work. I wanted to share some habits that really helped me learn better.
First off, I always like reading articles about how to become a more effective developer. Yes, I'm the guy learning all the keyboard shortcuts and downloading all the VS Code extensions for that extra 1% in my productivity.
OK, nothing wrong with that. But there's a lot of habits that don't get talked about when you're trying to level up your development skills. Habits that aren't related to any technical skills.
These are habits to improve your focus and effectiveness. Sounds a little abstract, but it's key to becoming a better developer.Sleep more
Sleep has the shittiest PR these days. I don't know why, but it's cool to not get enough sleep if you're sacrificing it to work more. I remember I felt like a badass when I pulled my first all-nighter finishing up an important project. (Which I procrastinated on until the last minute.)
Not getting enough sleep fucks everything up, though. Working harder at something only counts if the time you're spending is effective. If you can't focus because of chronic lack of sleep, you're not being more productive, you're being less.
Also, the amount of time you're sleeping matters. It's cool to not need as much sleep as the next person, and I remember back when I forced myself to get 6 hours of sleep a night. I felt really productive, because I could get up super early and crank out some work in the early morning. Plus, you always hear about some famous guy that gets by on a tiny amount of sleep every night and still manages to live an super-productive life.
That's nice, but you're probably not one of those people. I remember when I finally let myself sleep a good 9 hours consistently. I started to feel so much better, and everything else got easier. I had better focus, got more done, and watched a lot less YouTube when I was supposed to be coding. Even though I had three hours less in my day than before. It's that important.Turn off push notifications
When you're working on some code, pretty much the worst thing that can happen is getting distracted. When you need to get some work done, it's super easy to see something flash up on your phone and waste 15 minutes checking Twitter. And once you get back to what you were working on before, it takes even more time to get back in the zone and focused like before you got distracted.
Push notifications are just the worst. Especially with fucking apps like Facebook or Instagram, who want you to have ads in your eyeballs at all times. It doesn't even matter any more if you don't have anyone like your posts or follow you. You still get sent a fucking notification about something meaningless, like how someone updated their story or a friend is going to an event near you.
Wait, who the fuck cares? It's just a trick to get you to check in again and waste more of your time. You're not stupid, so why do you let some Silicon Valley assholes treat you like you are? These fuckers really don't have your best interests in mind, so you have to shut their shit off.
Starting today, you should really turn off all push notifications to everything that's not a messaging app. If your girlfriend needs to ask you something important on WhatsApp, that's OK. Everything else, especially social media, turn off all notifications for. You can check it at the end of the day or at predefined times. But no more getting sucked down a rabbit hole just because these apps want more advertising dollars.
Now you can actually get some serious work done without getting interrupted all the time. Great feeling, right?Hit the gym
I'm still surprised fitness hasn't caught on more in the developer space. These are engineers focused on optimizing everything—so why not optimize the most important thing you have, your body?
Getting to the gym three times a week has so many different health benefits. It will help you to think clearer when you're coding and un-fuck-up all the damage you're doing to your body from sitting all day.
Personally, I'm partial to strength training. Get in the gym and lift some heavy-ass weights. If you're starting out, Google Starting Strength, and do some squats, deadlifts, bench, and press three times a week. But you can do lots more—go for a run, bike to work every day, do some pushups when you wake up, go down to the park and play some badminton. If you don't like to exercise, start by doing something that you enjoy. Go for a walk and listen to a podcast. I don't know, be creative.
I felt the worst in my life when I was doing nothing but staying home on the internet for 16 hours a day. Exercise regularly, and you're going to feel better, have more energy, be more focused, and be less depressed and anxious. That was a big one for me. It releases chemicals in your brain to make you more effective with everything in life. Why would you not want to do it?Take more breaks
Getting some more exercise is great for your thinking, but you need to be moving throughout the day as well.
Set a timer for an hour when you're working, and get up and take a 5-minute break. It's healthy for you, and it'll give you a minute to relax from thinking about everything. You need a break from thinking about work all the time. If you can, go outside for a bit. Going for a short walk in nature is a good mood-booster.
Not only is it good for your health, it's good for your productivity. You might have heard of it before, but I always like Pomodoros when I need to be particularly productive. It's 25 minutes of work and a 5 minute break, repeated for as long as you need to work. I personally like to take around 50 minutes of work, and a 5-10 minute break. It's good for your mental state, as I always get stressed out and agitated if I stare at a screen for too long.No sugar
There's a lot I could write about nutrition, but the most important thing you can probably do for your health is cut way the fuck down on how much sugar you eat.
Sugar's in just about everything, and it totally drains your energy. There's nothing worse than eating some sugary shit for breakfast (because I felt like donuts) and totally crashing at 10:30.
You don't have to be a total health nut, and I'm not going to yell at you because you like eating dessert once in a while. But you already know what you should be doing, because you've probably heard it before—water and tea instead of sugary drinks, eggs for breakfast, ice cream only on special occasions. Now you just need to do it. Cut down on your sugar intake, and you'll feel much better.
Yeah, they were actually right when they said you are what you eat. If you eat a bunch of junk, you'll feel like junk. Go figure.
I'm not on some super sophisticated diet, but I'm more conscious than before of what I'm eating. If I'm falling into some old habits of buying a bunch of sugar for a snack, I'll catch myself and try to find something healthier to eat. Just be conscious of when you're doing it and that's half the battle already.Conclusion
Being a good developer isn't just about knowing the code. You have to think, problem-solve and focus on what you're working on. If you're treating your body like shit and getting your brain zucked by Mark Zuckerberg, you're not going to be as good as you could be.
Try a couple of these habits, and see how it goes! You'll feel a lot better, and your code will follow.
If you liked this, I write about learning to code and staying motivated. Check it out if it sounds interesting.submitted by /u/ericnmurphy to r/getdisciplined
