The Chinese National Badminton teams are getting ready for one of the biggest events of the year, as the men and women are preparing for the Thomas and Uber Cup. Both teams, in training in Fujian province ahead of the event...and had a little fun at practice on Thursday.

After a heavy day of training on Wednesday, the team had a considerably easier day on Thursday, taking some time for a little fun and games.

The team began the practice with their rackets and shuttlecocks in their bags...using instead a ball to work on their hand-eye co-ordination.

After some impressive tosses, the team also showed off their bowling skills.

The team did break out the rackets later, but not in the usual way. A mass game was played, with the veteran sof the club taking on the newcomers, a game designed to build team morale.

Fu Haifeng of Chinese National Badminton Team says, "We six are the veterans, and they seven are the young players. The main aim of the game is focused on getting the cooperation of the whole team."

The Thomas and Uber Cup which is held every two years will start in Malaysia, May 9th.
