For all of you that are having an off day playing badminton here are some excuses to get you though the match. Remember all good players blame something.
My partner was lousy
Shuttle went through hole in the net
The lights were glaring
That was your ball, partner
Tournament shuttle was bad
Linesman was cross-eyed
My string was too loose
The ball was too fast
I wore new shoes
I was ‘off’ today. I think I’m sick
I was not yet ready when he served
I didn’t notice that he was left-handed
His service was illegal. Can he do that?!
It was too hot at the club
It was too windy today
There was a draft coming from somewhere
I have a sprain
I didn’t sleep well last night
I didn’t warm up before playing
They cheated in the scoring
They kept directing the ball to my partner
They said they were only class ‘B’
My partner kept getting my shot
My partner and I didn’t gel
They used to be with the national team
My girlfriend quarreled with me last night
The ceiling was too low
I’m on a diet
I have LBM
It’s my monthly period
I forgot to wear supporter
My partner kept blocking my way
My partner was obstructing my view
It was a bad day at the office
Opponent’s form was so unorthodox
I haven’t played in two weeks
My new shirt was itchy
The floor was slippery
My partner’s rotation was wrong
My partner’s defense was weak
The ump was opponent’s relative
The audience was too noisy
|There was dripping from the roof
The courts here seem smaller
They have home court advantage
The pairings were wrong
They had secret training
I get conscious when I’m being video-taped
Oh…have we started the real game?
Weren’t we supposed to pick up the shots AFTER one bounce!?
There is something wrong with my contact lenses
I was just being nice
I thought they needed the confidence booster
This is a real game??
I wasn’t using my racket.
Someone took my racket!
The net was too high.
The net was too low.
There was a net in the way.
The net moved and blocked my shots.
I play doubles, so I’m not used to singles.
I was trying a new form.
I have tennis elbow.
I have badminton elbow.
Aren’t we still rallying?
They rigged the game.
The net moved on me.
Someone threw something at me.
I had to let my girlfriend win.
That’s my gift to you.
I forgot how to play.
Is this court regulation size!
Is that shuttlecock regulation size?
You never said go!
I learned from the best, I just forgot what I learned.
There is a hole in my racket
Someone put lead in my shoes!
My partners not feeling to well.
My doctor said i’m allergic to shuttle cocks.
I had joggers nipple.
I can’t understand it…. I’m normally better than this!
I pretty tied we’re trying for a baby.
That draft kept blowing the shuttle.
