    well, i just want to know if colleges/univ do accept players from other schools?
    uhmm, for example your from univ. of santo tomas, and for some crazy reason, u want to play for ateneo. will ateneo be willing to hold a tryout for this situations or at least give him/her a chance? (just an example pipz.n_n) :D

    m not a badminton coach nor a varsity player but my son is. University/colleges annually give try-outs for prospective players to represent their school. Regardless of what school you come from as long as your enrolled to that particular school, that qualifies you join the try outs. You could be a regular player or just be a part of the players pool (for a start). But there are cases wherein a player may be offered directly to be a part of the varsity due to their excellent skills. And to your other question, its not the school that play, but the players. Its the player that dominates, not the school. But there are schools that offer excellent training coz they have excellent trainers like UP. The likes of Ian Piencenaves heads the training team. So prove your skills so as they will take you. Have a nice day

    You go to school to learn and earn a degree right? Not just to be a badminton player. Take the school that give the best offer. F u ask me, i'll take the school that offer the best in academics. The sport is just a ticket for the benefits you might receive for representing the school in that particular sport. Think of what you'll be in the future...a Lin Dan or an executive in a big company? Its your choice. We can't be a LinDan for life. My son just graduated high school at xavier university and i always reminded him that badminton will never be forever but education is.;)
