I wonder if a dominant left eye/righthandedness contributed to my poor hand/eye coordination for things like badminton ping pong, tennis, etc. Or maybe I'm just looking for excuses to be unathletic. I can swim and ride a bike. I need to get my bike out, someday.

I'm right handed but left eyed, even though my left eye needs twice the correction that my right needs. I could only tell left from right when I was a little kid by seeing which hand moved (the right) when I pretended to pledge allegiance ( a USA flag ritual that used to begin school days). Even as an adult sometimes I have to think about it.  My family knows not to trust me if I say to turn left or right, but that I'm accurate if I'm pointing.
