My first year of college studies, was all about, well, studies. I had become such a bookworm that I hardly found any time for even casual sporting activities of any sort. So, come summer vacations I decided to join the local badminton club to pursue something serious. I joined yesterday but didn't play. I had had some experience in the game (although that was several years ago), and thought that the players were quite of the same skill as I was. So today, I started "playing", and found to my utter disbelief, that I couldn't so much as get a single good point, and it was hard to focus on the game. My stamina gave up, I almost fell on court, and lost both the doubles matches that I played. I knew I was out of shape, but I never knew I was this bad, it was embarassing. Now I'm having second thoughts about going there tomorrow coz I don't want to be the laughing stock Anybody else got similar experiences to share or any suggestions?
