My Favorite Outdoor Game

I'm not really an outdoorsy person. Never have been. Used to bunk games classes in school whenever possible. The only outdoor game I did take a slight fancy to was...



Yupp... badminton.

In senior school, we were allowed to bring our own badminton rackets when we had games periods. That's when I finally stopped bunking those classes!

Actually, this is one outdoor game Dad used to play with us (my sister and I) when we were kids. Maybe that's why I developed a liking for it. He taught us how to play this game at an early age.

What about you? Did you enjoy outdoor sports more than I did? Which one was/is your favorite?

So many evenings I have spent playing Badminton with my siblings and parents. It was not just a game :D While growing up my parents encouraged me to play a lot of outdoor games. I used to cycle a lot too.

It is one of my favourite game too. Pretty cool fun. Use to play with my brother as kids.
lovely thought of sharing your favorites.

Well....I was a PE teacher so I love outdoors and all kinds of games. As for badminton, we would set out all three gyms in our high school with badminton nets in spring and fall for a few weeks. It was easily the most popular game for our students. And there's no wind in the gym to interfere so it was great.

Badminton was our fav sport as kids, more so, because my parents played it daily in the evenings along with their friends and neighbours too. It's been ages since I played it. Must play it sometimes soon again :)

I hate to say this but I don't know how to play this one. Everyone, literally everyone knows it. I was always an indoor person partly because we had no playing space where we grew up.

How I miss playing badminton. :( That was my favorite sport by far. Favorite outdoor activity would be cycling. Or is that a sport too? :P

Raji, my parents tried too, but I was just too stubborn for them to handle! :P

Chicky said...

Thanks, Indy! And I can imagine... badminton matches with your siblings are absolute fun!

Chicky said...

Uh oh! PE teacher! Did you have students like me, who preferred to bunk your class? :P
The courts in my school were also sheltered against the wind. So it used to be cool. Plus there was no supervision by a teacher. We used to be totally on our own! :D

Chicky said...

Same here, Shilpa. It's been ages since I played it!

Chicky said...

Ahh, Tulika! Finally, I meet one person who was a "ghar ghussu" type like me! :P

Chicky said...

Shantala, I envy anyone who can cycle. My Dad tried so hard to teach me, but, in vain!

Aah! I loved the Games period! Was quite a hooligan when it came to football.. My short legs running all over the place and acting like a total maniac..
But the one game I still find time to play is throwball.. *_*

Badminton wasn't one of my favourites even though I occasionally played it. My favourites were cricket and football. Played cricket for years and I think I only stopped when I moved out of home!

Chicky said...

Mithila! Football? Really??? But you get so dirty in that game! Ewwwww!

Chicky said...

Sanch! Another football player! And cricket! My God! I tried cricket with some neighborhood girls back when I was in school... didn't much like it... too much running! Same with football! I hate running!
