How many tournaments have you won in your whole life?
What about "Participate a lot, but never won a title"???
How is it that u can determin the level of play by the # of tourneys attended??
True, you can't determine how good you are by the number of tournaments you entered.
But the question is how many you HAVE WON. But that also doesn't really reflect on how good you actually are. Because depending on which country you're in, for example a Singaporean player may win alot of local tournaments but if he goes to Indonesia or China, I doubt he will win over there. Different countries, different standards. Sad but true!
I haven't even went for coaching so i dun even know like who who service and all
*but my skool having competition,so i gain sum experience for double service and all *
o... haha... stupid me
I've been in 2 so far... I won... i'd rather not say
But it was 2 years ago when I first started playing...
You people are so humble! I'm in the 10-20 range. One District meet (representing my school), one Unit meet (representing Binan, Laguna), approx 8 office tourneys, and approx 5 to 7 club tourneys and sponsored tourneys.
But I've also had a couple of loses. In the office, I'm in level A. But outside, I'm usually in B or C. This year, I want to experience playing in a higher level, even if I lose. But I need to find a really good partner.
well i fall into the 20+ and the tournaments range from all levels from local ones to junior ones and even international ones, reached finals a decent number of times but well one of these days ill have to pull it off silver and bronze arnt something i want to get use to. i have also have my cases of 1st round losses too though so theres both sides of the spectrum.
but i dont really see how it says how good you are well i mean yeah if somebody wins tournaments then there more than likley pretty good but also depends on level of the tournament too.
Why are you guys digging up a thread from 2002??
I have got many badminton friends thinking and bragging about how good they were but still ate the humble pie. I'm from Malysia, and a friend of mine who is a national backup player once told me that on one of his china tour he was embarassingly well beaten by some trainees (who are not even considered as state level yet) from the chinese camp.
Unless you are a pro. who makes a living out of the game, you need not know how good you are. The more appropriate question to ask if you are a casual or social player would be how much you enjoy the game and the company of your fellow buddies; be they good or bad.
I still have a lot to learn
Come to think of it. I fall to the 20+ range. Anyways, I just want to emphasize that the number of tournaments won is not a good basis of how good a player you are. Like what BCers are saying, the level of play depends on the country, or let's just say "the crowd". The tourneys I joined are just local events. National players are not allowed to join. Varsities are automatically leveled A. Thus, that lowers the level of play, per se.
The title of this thread should be changed to "How many tournaments have you won" instead of "How good are you".
You forgot an option for 0.
Big fat zero for me
you guys are really too humble...national level compys (even if full time national players are not allowed) are pretty tough i'd say...
Wow!!! There are some "Lost Counts"... Anyway this is years old thread... And in need of revision for no lots of tourney and 0 victory Anyway... most of BCers are Leisure player xD... Wow.... (Me too lol)
wow, there are 3 BF members that are better than LD or gao ling
Maybe they can't count past 20
Well... If they can't count past 20 then J Hirata san's theory is facing a problem here peace lol...

Hmm...I only won a silver at a student convention tournament. Haven't participated in anything else yet because I don't think I'm ready yet. Still training like crazy!
iv one quite a few titles. Ofcourse at different levels but everything counts. I began play C grade ofcourse... and won singles doubles and mixed. At a couple of diferent tournaments. QLD open GoldCoast Open Brisbane Open etc in Australia. Then Same tournaments B grade titles singles doubles and Mixed.
A grade i became competitive but am yet to win a title. I have one the A singles Plate final for the Queensland open. When i went to nationals didnt win anything there as im too inexperienced
Then i took a year off and am just starting back into badminton.. had my first hit back last week. I still have perfect shots and technique just footwork is discraceful haha
Iv also won 2 Best and Fairest trophies aswell as 2 Most Improved/Up and Coming player awards at tournaments
Mainly becaues i went from C grade to A grade in 1 year. Then A grade to open grade in the next year.
