What People are saying about this

Thomas A. Bowker
In Ward Lock's new Play the Game series, badminton has been given an expert treatment by Pat Davis, the doyen of the badminton writing fraternity. A potted history of the game provides enough background to show that England was the motivator for this exciting and now worldwide game of badminton. (The Badminton Association of England celebrated its centenary in 1993.) This explanation of the origins of the game is followed by detailed information on all aspects of how to play the game. For the beginner, the descriptions are easy to understand, practical and not clouded with theory. The numerous illustrations are good and clear, and they reinforce all the descriptive points, from equipment to techniques. Once the beginner has had the appetite whetted in the opening sections of the book, and can appreciate the basics, then the finer techniques are presented to savour and ponder. -- From the Foreword
