Just a question.

Do you call the shuttlecock "l'oiseau" in Québec ?
Or bird is just the short word to say the shuttlecock and you call it a "volant" like we call it in France.

By the way, I used to be a player too, but I didn't practice that much during the past years.
I'm more playing tennis at the moment 'cos I found a partner, but I really prefer badminton. You have a softer touch to do fancy moves much more easily and it's a lot of fun.

Oh, and I've read that Saku is himself a Badminton player.
That's not surprising, as Badminton shares a few similarities with hockey (very fast paced game requiring soft hands...).

So, not much advise from me, P1x44r (if you really want to know, I've got a Wilson and another one that I don't remember the name...starts with a R ), but keep your interest up. It's definitely worth it.
