A resort in Redang Island, Malaysia called The Taaras Beach & Spa Resort has introduced a badminton-on-water experience.
"Shuttle at Sea" was launched in collaboration with Malaysia Badminton Experience and according to the resort, it is the first of its kind.
The activity will have you balancing on a floating badminton court as you play a game of badminton.
Experienced coaches will also be present to guide participants.
It looks like getting wet is to be expected, too.
A video shared by Malaysia Badminton Experience on their Instagram page shows its participants falling into the water during the course of the game.
The one who picks up the shuttlecocks in the water will get extra dose of exercise.
Floating court held down by bricks
That said, participants can be assured that the badminton court will not float too far off during the match.
In the video, the floating badminton court can be seen being secured and held down by bricks.
