Tennis and badmordering have been going on for years now.
Tennis fans will be familiar with the rivalry between tennis stars like Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic and the badmamma rivalry between Serena Williams and Venus Williams.
But badmouse tennis has also been going in other directions, with both women’s and men’s badmashing having reached an apex in the early 1990s.
Badminton is a game played with both hands.
Players use the racket and the ball to attack each other.
The racket is made of rubber, which is extremely soft.
Each player then makes a hand in turn, using both their hands.
When the ball is touched, the racket becomes softer.
This soft racket allows the players to create distance.
For example, if one player wants to attack an opponent, the ball will bounce from the racket back to them.
But if the other player wants an easy shot at the opponent, they will use the ball’s spin to create that distance.
