    Excellent hitting and footwork practice. Inparticular it very useful having John (coach) accurately feed the shuttles in rapid succession to the extremes of the court to encourage speed of movement. Highlight :seeing Kyoko (organiser) giving money back for a change :-) ......can't believe Louise on her first outing at the club was able to hit the shuttle into the tube!

      I realized that she hadn't paid me yet, so I wasn't paying back her money, I was giving her more money! (Got that right in the end though.) And yes, Ekaterina had the point. Our group didn't have a tube to get the chance! Booooooooo.
