    To be more accurate, maybe we should do a poll of "how many hrs do u play per week".

    Just a suggestion.

    Used to play at least 3 times a week, sometimes 4-5 times. This amounts to about 8-14 hours per week.

    Nowadays, I don't play that often..... got to do my Final Year Project.... topic is "Real Time Embedded Robot Vision" for those who're curious to know. :D

    Modius,

    can you relate your project to badminton?:D

    For me, play about 6 to 8 hours per week. That is on court i.e. almost no sitting around.

    I can only play 3 times a week. University restricts how often you can play on their courts. This totals up to 8 hours of playing time per week. I could play more than that, but it would cost more money. :(

    What i really want to do if money was no problem for me is to become a full time professional, now that would be SWEEEEETTTTTT! :D

    I had to vote for 8 days a week, since there's no choice for 8 times a week. I usually play on Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun, however, I play in 2 different gyms on Wed and Sun, that's twice a day~~ :D

    Due to schedule conflicts, I can only play 2 days a week. But I really work hard on these 2 days - 4 - 5 hrs per day. Always the 1st one come in, and last one to leave...

    Playing about 3-4 times a week, depending on schedule, and each time it is for 3-4 hours depending on where I play.

    Carbonex Player, how do u manage to play for 25hrs a week!?

    Thats about 3½ hours a day

    Three times a week and beyond... the 'beyond' begins after I joined VRC for the summer:). Hopefully, I will be able to stay on for the rest of the year. Definitely looking forward to these sessions, beside badminton, the social aspect is just as rewarding.

    i play 3 days a week. there might be occasions where i'll pull a 4 day week of badminton, but it depends on my time schedule. the three days usually include my lessons (group/private) and my recreational play (ladder games, club, etc.)

    Normally, I will play on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, 2-3 hours/day.

    Sometimes, I only go on Friday and Sunday because of the scheduling (of myself and school....)

    Badminton is not the sport my school would care about....so sometimes my school just cancels the session or whatever.....#$&#(.......which is really making people mad :(
