Was reading through skyjohnny1's post and he claimed to have spent $3K on coaching. (Not sure if I should or ) So, out of curiousity(if you don't mind), I was wondering what other BCers have spent on their coaching/s. Care to answer the followings, 1) How much did you spend on coaching? 2) What did you initially plan to achieve when taking up coaching? 3) Did you achieve your goal? As for me, I have never spent anything on coaching. I guess that's the advantage of growing up in Malaysia with many badminton buddies. As long as I can hit the shuttle from one end to the other, that's good enough for me. But most importantly, I never thought about playing badminton at a competitive level. I used to join competitions just to support my favourite sport and meet more friends. Having said that, nowadays, I spend a lot on rackets and other badminton equipments. I need to go on rehabilitation soon.
