First we demonstrate how to play some Badminton shots:
|A backhand serve||forehand stroke||backhand stroke||Smash!||punch shot||net shot||Game Over!|
But it doesn't always go to plan!
|Going for the same shot?||Who will get there first?||Is it In or Out?||Caught off-balance||Oops, missed!||Lost in the lights||Shouldn't you be on the Croquet lawn Pete?||It's all in good fun||Time for tea|
