Today, we're not going to talk about us. Yes, we love badminton and what Jeff and I are hoping to do is to build a life working to share this incredible sport with the world. Not long ago, we had the opportunity to connect with someone who does exactly that! 

Becky Ances

Some of you may know her as 'Badminton Becky'. Her badminton story is likely to be vastly different from the many badminton players that you and I have had the chance to meet with and I'll tell you why. Becky was introduced to the world of badminton in her 40s (That's right, 40's!) as a result of her move to Xiamen, China. 

Now, in her own words, "I AM BADMINTON".

And although she lives and breathes badminton now (and won’t shut up about it!), she had never even heard of the sport before she moved to China.

Have you ever wanted to know what it would be like to move to China as a Caucasian and learn how to play badminton in your 40s while only being able to speak in a foreign language? And on top of that, create a life around the love of your sport and share it through VLOG's on Youtube? 

Then don't waste anymore time reading and have a listen to our chat with Becky now:
