    Just had my first 2 hours of badminton of the season. Don't feel too bad just now, but it usually kicks in on the second day. We play from September twice a week through to April. There are only 4 of us so it's non-stop best of 3 games then change partners.
    I gave up the golf 2 years ago so I'll have to do something to keep fit(ish). lol!

    Another 2 hours tonight, I'm going to suffer in the morning. That's us into full swing now, 2 hours Friday nights and 2 hours Sunday nights. It takes 2 or 3 weeks before the body gets used to it.

    Seeing as you live in Scotland you will probably get looked after on the NHS after you've knackered your hips playing badminton at your age. We English know we have to behave sensibly.
