Challenge approval - what are the criteria?

Question • 6 answers

Where can I watch more badminton?

Question • 1 answer

I loved watching it during the Commonwealth Games, but it's not normally on the BBC, unlike tennis, and I don't have Sky. Are there any other places that you can watch badminton easily? Preferably live, but not essential.

Newest answer

http://www.youtube.com/badmintonworldtv Just found this. Allegedly the world championship matches later this month are going to be on here, although obviously not live. That'll do for a start, though.

I'm with Colleen and Kevin on this one, Dan. Get checked out by a Dr and/ or Physio. That way, if you have done some damage, you can be properly rehabilitated, which will ultimately get you back to full strength quicker than if you try to push through. Whil...
