    So... Your collection of rackets will remind you of Badminton whenever you see them (whether you play with them or not). :D:D:D

    5 times a day.

    I wake up and I think about badminton, around 9:00 I get hungry so I think about food and have something to eat, then I think about badminton, around 1:00 I get hungry so I think about food and have something to eat, then I think about badminton, then around 6:00 I get hungry so I think about food and have something to eat, then I think about badminton, then around 11:00 I think about my wife . . . .:p, then dream about badminton.

    True story.

    Yes, but how often depends on my work schedule. I play at least 5 times a week, and as many as 9 times, plus 1 - 4 times a week on court coaching. 1 1/2 - 3 hours per session.

    No wonder you think so much about badminton, 'cos you are a coach.

    I think I'm the only one of my club who is so obsessed with it, but due to that I've improved much faster than most of them. ;)

    when I was around 18years old I crave for badminton everyday, used to played for morning and evening session everyday but everything changed few years later. Not even want to play anymore due to stress and tired working life

    You are lucky that you are not working with Badminton sessions everyday, every week.

    I am a full-time Badminton coach; But only sometimes I feel stressed and feel tired with this favourite sport of ours. :):):)

    I play twice a week. I would have played more if I didn't have a job.

    I think about badminton a few times a day. But strangely enough, I never had a dream (ie, while sleeping) about badminton.

    It's good to have a break from badminton while sleeping

    I dream about badminton. Sometimes I wake myself up when I twitch my arm while dreaming about hitting a shot. :)
