Badminton: offbeat food
Posted in the Sports Forum

Badminton is a racquet sport played by either two opposing players (singles) or two opposing pairs (doubles), who take positions on opposite halves of a rectangular court that is divided by a net. Players score points by striking a shuttlecock with their racquet so that it passes over the net and lands in their opponents' half of the court. Each side may only strike the shuttlecock once before it passes over the net. A rally ends once the shuttlecock has struck the floor, or if a fault has been called by either the umpire or service judge or, in their absence, the offending player, at any time during the rally (source: Wikipedia).
Badminton is an eccentric sport that requires wit, grace, flexibility, and finesse. In recent Olympic Games, the nation of Indonesia, for example, has been athletically prominent in the sport of badminton, which suggests that the tennis-like grace-based sport is marketable.
Do these athletic considerations reflect the allegorical marketability of sports-themed Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Wimbledon" (2003)?
Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?
