Badminton Courts and New Materials Considered

July 01, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 143

Perhaps you didn't know, but there are some folks working on new futuristic badminton courts right now. For those in the United States, they may not realize how important this sport is throughout Asia, or in other parts of the world. It is for that reason that high-tech and new materials are being brought into this sport to increase the agility of the players to compete at the upper end of the tournament spectrum. These new courts will be lined with carbon composites and graphene coatings.

Now then, you might think that sheets of graphene, or carbon nanotubes might be more apropos to international space stations, satellites, stealth aircraft, and products and equipment in other super high-tech industries. Still, you be wrong to think that badminton is not considered equally important in many of the countries who find it one of their favorite pastimes and most competitive sports. The reason this technology is so incredible is that graphene and carbon composites can be made to conduct electricity.

In fact, they could work just like a giant touchpad. In other words every time a player took a step, it could record exactly where they put their feet, and later that could be played back to help a player better themselves, and train at improving the muscles needed for those types of agility based moves. For Olympic coaches it will be a godsend, and it will only increase the already furious pace of the game.

If you doubt somehow that badminton is not one of the fastest played sports on the planet, or one that doesn't require the greatest agility a human body can offer then I suggest you go to YouTube and download some of the recent tournaments in Southeast Asia, and see for yourself. Indeed, these new courts will play extremely fast because they will be nonskid, not to mention the fact that they will be literally indestructible.

They will not need resurfacing, they will not show wear and tear, and they will be worth every penny for those who play on them. Being able to hone your skills on a graphene coated carbon nanotube composite court will make the difference between those who move on to be world champions, and those that are able to compete in the lower ranks.

Not long ago when I looked at what these researchers were doing, I was blown away by some of their discoveries, and how they will be using this material, in fact, I think it will change everything, the game they never be the same again. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
