    In Malaysia Badminton is one of the well known sports throughout the world. There were some group from other States who came over for tournament or friendly match organised by the Sarawak Badminton Association or the Ministry of Sports and Culture.
    Young children trained from small at the age of five , as soon as they grow up they will represent school , division and States for age group every year and with age category. As they grow older they will go for big tournaments elsewhere depend on their skill and ability.

    Jogging is well known here or walking, over here we have few places for jogging over the resevoir park or the Stutong park in which many people will go there for walks in the evening. It is good for young and old to obtain good health.

    Equipment: For badminton , rackets, spare shirts ,shorts and towels, sloan an ointment for those who get injured during game, and not forgetting water for drinking.
    For those going for tournaments they need at least 6 rackets just in case. There are many brand of rackets they used, and most popular are the Yonex brand, some may use Yang Yang brand or Fleet brand and there are many other brands too.
    For all rackets they will surely have its grips so they will always bring spare grips just in case the one they used get wet or slippery they can change immediately.

    For Jogging, just a towel to bring along and a jacket just in case you get wet on your T-shirt, unless you bring a spare T-shirt to changed. Water in the bottle is necessary too.
    For bothe badminton and jogging, they have its own shoes.
    Badminton shoes have many brands like the rackets, and it is different from the jogging shoes. Choose wisely.
