Do you have a favourite racket sport to play/watch?

Please pick one.

Choose from the likes of tennis, table tennis, badminton, squash, etc.

My favourite (to play) is badminton. Some have no idea how hard it can be. They assume the shuttlecock is feeble (their words seem to imply that!), but controlling that shuttlecock, and getting it to do what you want it to do, is tiring!

Haven't played badminton since about 2008/09 (I plan to again soon), but it's my favourite racket sport.

The one I have played the most is racquetball so I guess I'll make it my favorite. Played it in rec leagues for years but it's a few years since I last played. Those walls don't give enough for my old body to be running into anymore.

Robbie you're right about badminton, hard to be good at it but fun as hell.

To play: Badminton, but haven't played in a while.

To watch: None. Haven't cared about Tennis since John McEnroe retired, and him throwing fits and whining was more entertaining than the actual games.

Tennis, the sport I lettered in.  Still fun to watch occasionally.
