Badminton is my favourite sport. It is the fastest racket game in the world. It is played with rackets and a shuttlecock. There are six main shots: the serve, the clear, the drop, the smash, the forehand drive and the backhand drive. The court on which badminton is played is in the shape of a rectangle and is divided in half by a net. I started playing badminton when I was old enough or strong enough to swing the rackets. I love racket sports, especially badminton because badminton involves a lot of running, stopping, and changing directions, it is very easy to become tired while playing. A high level of physical fitness is required for a person to play several games continuously. I usually last only about two games. After two games I usually just stand on the court, rather than running to get the shuttle. It’s in my blood but I rarely play anymore. Where I live now, it's hard to find a partner to play with.

High quality paper, which has good consistency of porosity, will enable cleaner lines. I am not that good at calligraphy still; I try to practice the strokes and curves in my leisure time.
