I used to play badminton (or some other form of it, with or without a net) a lot, and I really loved it. There is a sport called Indiaca which is played like volleyball or badminton but with a feathered thing that you hit with your hand. We played that a lot when I was a teenager. It isn't really well known but was very popular in Germany back then. You can play it in your back yard for fun or as a team sport also.
