    Loud noise in between rallies. It can be distracting during a rally to have 1 person yelling at you; I can't imagine a massive crowd yelling at you.

    Of course, the gasps and cries of awe when a player makes am amazing shot are perfectly ok. :p

    i find i zone out during a rally. Im concentrating purely on the shuttle and my oppononent and what im doing rather than listening or watching spectators around the court.

    SO LOUD LOUD LOUD!!! so i can stop and hear when the points over :D

    I don't like it quiet. It makes me think that everyone is staring intensely at you, their eyes burning into your body, which makes me feel nervous and uncomfortable :p

    But i don't like it really loud either like everyone is yelling and talking about all sorts because it makes my mind wander to what they're talking about. When i was younger i used to have a bad habit of daydreaming, and things like an interesting conversation nearby distract me haha :p

    But i do like encouraging yells and the 'ooohs' and 'aaahs' because it fires me up and makes me want to play to the best of my ability :) And it makes me feel like people are interested in watching me play which feels so good :D

    I do think too much noise may disturb the game and the players' concentration. Anyway, cheers in between rallies is always welcomed:D

    I read some thread(about cheating If Im not wrong) , they say that some crowded only support for their player only . Sometime they disturb the opponent when playing(like out,in and etc.......) . Well , my question is , do this big national tournament have problem like this?
    BTW , I follow my mood . Sometime keep silent , sometime loud when rally and sometime loud all the time(chaiyo,chaiyo!) .

    I would make as loud as possible between rallies, but stay quite in the other time. Keeping silence also helps player to focus on their games.

    In Yonex Sunrise Vietnam Open, many Vietnamese people tried to yell whenenver Tien Minh began smashing to support him. It was just not fair with Chong Wei Feng and the other opponent.

    Why aren't any pros use iPod when playing badminton? :D

    approve of a loud crowd as long as they're not using those air-horns...

    ok:
    -drums
    -thunder sticks
    -vocals
    -etc.

    Once, my teammates were playing doubles against another school, and it was an Away game. One of my teammates did a great drop shot, it hit the ground, and then the opponent hit it back over. But the crowd, just started cheering because they thought it was a good, legit net shot. We protested, but the point counted just because the crowd cheered, so everyone assumed it was a good shot.

    Its an awesome experienced watching badminton games when the crowd was also into the game, aside from watching the game itself, fans' reaction were just another show itself.... LOL

    I enjoy the atmosphere for any badminton events held in Indonesia or Malaysia. The crowd are always so supportive. Though they make a lot of noise, but it is really very enjoyable.
