Value & development
Fair Game is not the preserve of just one association but belongs to Shuttlecock sport as a whole. People play to participate and enjoy the game – two considerations that are often more important than winning. Bending the rules and foul play are unsporting and ruin the enjoyment for all involved. The generic concept of fair game is a fundamental part of the game of Shuttlecock. Coaches, players, referees and supporters all have a role in upholding the principles of Fair Game. Fair Game has a fundamental role in sport and there is a need to apply it to all sporting activities.
ISF's Fair Game Campaign is represented by the slogan "My Game is Fair Game".
The Ecoflag is a symbol of the commitment of sports enthusiasts worldwide to the environment. Sports enthusiasts know the importance of the natural ecosystem and its basic products, such as clean air, clean water, and nutritious food, to their health and performance. Many sport organizations, events and athletes are already working in different countries around the world to increase environmental awareness and action in order to protect themselves and their future generations.
The Ecoflag has become the symbol of these actions and serves to unite the individual efforts of these different groups into a global initiative.
Shuttlecock has its spectacular history and character, a feast for the eyes, improve flexibility, keep good health ... To grow this sport we need to share the passion and attract more people. We need players. We need audience. We need to work together to spreadout this beautiful sport. We welcome new countries to play shuttlecock. We develop at local level within existing shuttlecock countries and adapt to different cultures. Many ideas are coming :
Competition style : Rally between 2 teams over the net makes a game very interesting. Maybe the feather ball should be bigger and fly slower for newcomers and make it more visible to video and audience. Create "one touch" game. Share beween countries on training and development methods. Use digital collaboration tools for international meetings and work.
Free and artistic styles : present in the international events, open to public to play and discover shuttlecock ("play anywhere at any age")
In English, the "shuttlecock" word is often confused with the badminton ball, should we find another name (feather-foot, feather-kick ...) or just keep it
