--You can use both hands and therefore have two forehands, or you can use only one hand and have a forehand and a backhand.
--One can use a Badminton Court as an arena for competition, or set up your own height of the net and the area's size of the court to fit your physical size in the backyard or in your own living room or bedroom, keeping in mind that the smaller size are probably result in longer rally (more fun) and also less strenuous.

Caution: Do not squeeze the ball when the Ball is covered with water as water could get inside the Ball which will take longer for the Ball to completely dry. PalmBall yields best performance when completely dry and fluffy.
