    send her to china now!! Jk, once she is old enough get her into playing the sport early, then get a coach. if she is good and once she is older she will get a sponsorship, then u just keep getting better, play regional tourney, then national, then international, when ur old enought i guess somehow the BWF makes u pro and stuff

    haha i thought of that alredy! so maybe we r thinking age 6-7 for a coach? i think she is good already! but 3 is young and hopefully she will become better each time she plays. got lots of strength for a little girl! thax! :D :D

    The earliest I've seen is four... they train with the club pro once or twice a week, basically hitting around a balloon with a badminton racquet. At age six or seven they join little-kid lessons and have a lot of fun!
