Badminton Officials Skirting The Issue

By Wyatt Earp | May 8, 2011

Leave it to the commies to ruin about badminton.

A new rule that orders female badminton players to wear short skirts could be scrapped after objections from China, Indonesia and Scandanavian countries, a Malaysian official said Saturday. Women playing in the sport’s top tournaments are compelled to wear skirts or dresses, even if they are worn over the top of shorts or trousers. But wearing shorts and trousers alone is banned.

The Kuala Lumpur-based Badminton World Federation (BWF) said it would go ahead from June 1 with the regulation on skirts, which was earlier deferred after an outcry from players and officials.

“There is a possibility a rule change can take place,” S. Selvam told AFP, noting that objections started in China, Indonesia and India but now included Denmark and Sweden.

For cripes’ sake, why not just make them wear burkhas?

    Personally I think they should wear the same uniforms the woman playing beach volleyball wear. They both hit a device over a net by striking it.

    Where do you find some of these stories?

    The last time I played badminton was in college. (I had to fill that dreaded Phys Ed requirement.) The class was at 8:00 in the morning, and most of the time I was either half asleep or hung over. People were lucky if I remembered my sweat pants and my “Clarion University Co-Ed Naked Touch Football” shirt.

    I wore a “I Love Shuttlecocks” t-shirt to gym class.

    GroovyVic – Do you still play for that football team?

    Mrs. Crankipants – Well done!

    GroovyVic – One of the best dirty-sounding non-dirty words of all time.
