The games I like most is badminton. All it takes is a
willing partner, two rackets and a shuttlecock. We do not
even need a net. After all we simply enjoy hitting the shuttlecock to each
other. My sister and I spend hours doing this just about everyday. We are not
going to be world champions. It is simply great fun.
We used to do this with two old toy rackets. Since then our father had bought
us two real, although cheap, rackets. I must say we enjoy the game even more.
Sometimes even my mother comes to join in the fun when she has the time for it.
The other game I like to play is table tennis. We have an old table, two bats
and some balls. So on some days we play table tennis instead. This is a game
that requires more skill. We cannot even hit the ball onto the table half of the
time. This can be frustrating. So we go back
to badminton which is far easier and more fun.
Since we play outdoors we are at the mercy of
the weather. We often have to pause when the wind is too strong. It is difficult
to hit the shuttlecock properly when the wind blows it away. Sometimes it rains,
making it impossible to play.
I do play other games in school like basketball and football. Somehow they do
not seem to be much fun. So I stick to badminton and table tennis.
