Badminton Doubles: About me

Michael Hayes Badminton Pic

Hello, I’m Michael Hayes, and this is my first foray into the world of blogging. I’m a keen badminton player – I’ve been playing badminton regularly since my early teens, and at the moment I’m playing 2-3 times a week, mainly at a London Badminton Club at Finsbury Sports Centre.

I was inspired to develop this blog by the Thirty Day Challenge – a thirty day guide to setting up a website from scratch. It’s an excellent set of resources and this site would never have happened without it. See my about this site page to find out more.
