The Impossible Feat

No matter how good you are at badminton, I think it is very unlikely that you will be able to hit three targets in six attempts. So I would like to offer you a challenge. If you think you have what it takes to beat the odds, prove me wrong!


What is Shoootle



Shoootle is a game that involves hitting shuttlecocks with a badminton racket into circular targets made of recycled shuttlecock tubes. It is quite versatile and can be enjoyed both indoors and outdoors, either solo or with a group of friends.

Playing Shoootle has several benefits that can improve your physical and mental health, including:

  • 1

    Hand-eye coordination & muscle memory

    Shoootle requires a high level of hand-eye coordination, which has the potential to enhance your reflexes and develop your muscle memory. This, in turn, can lead to an improvement in your low serve.
  • 2

    Stress relief

    Playing Shoootle can be a fun and relaxing way to relieve stress and tension.
  • 3

    Mental focus

    Shoootle requires a great deal of concentration and focus, which can help improve your mental acuity and cognitive abilities. Players must learn to quiet their minds and focus their attention on the target, while remaining calm and centered.

What is Shoootle made of?

Shoootle is primarily made of discarded shuttlecock tubes, which are assembled together to form a circular tube, and the edges are finished off with plastic tube caps.

Where can I buy a Shoootle?

Currently, I do not have any plans to commercialize Shoootle. My goal in creating this game is not only to promote Shoootle, but also to raise awareness of the "waste not" culture. However, if anyone is interested in commissioning me to make one, they are more than welcome to contact me.

How many tubes of shuttlecocks are required to make a Shoootle?

You'll need no less than 10 tubes of shuttlecocks and 74 tube caps to make a Shoootle with a diameter of 480 mm.

How can Shoootle help me perform better in badminton? 

Shoootle's emphasis on correct racket gripping technique can be particularly beneficial for beginners, as it can lead to more accurate and precise serves. Additionally, playing Shoootle can also help improve hand-eye coordination and reaction time, which are important skills in badminton. By practicing and refining these skills in Shoootle, they can transfer over to badminton and potentially improve their performance.
