Anyone for "blackminton"?

BlackmintonThe Guardian this week reported on the rise of a number of new hybrid sports, the most intriguing being "blackminton".

But could the concept be transferred to squash?

Essentially badminton played in the dark with fluorescent strips taped over the racket and a glow in the dark ball, the sport looks allows its participants to act out Tron-style fantasies without the need to climb inside an Amstrad CPC 6128.

Surely the squash's speed would make nocturnal play prohibitive. But with crackpot enthusiasts already mad for blokarting, octopush and goalball, coming up with a wacky name might prove most difficult.

If you don't believe it, have a look here.
