Description

Former UTB/TSC physical education professor Werner Steinbach invented pington, a racquet sport similar to badminton, in the 1960s. But the sport lacked a textbook until Kinesiology Department (now the Health and Human Performance Department) faculty members Jim Lemons and Judith D. Walton formalized the rules of the game in print. In pington, athletes learn how to play this fast-paced game, which takes place on a badminton court and is played in singles, doubles and mixed doubles with special, locally made paddles. The text explains why pington rallies (played with a higher net than is used in badminton) tend to last longer and why a game of pington provides a better aerobic workout than less demanding racquet sports.
