    I don't think there's a healthy way to increase your length with a couple of inches.

    That depends on the genes. I heard that some college basketball players grew 3 or 4 more inches in 4 years. But usually Asians slow down at 17. Yang Yang won the world championship at 5'7". I think Ardy is about the same height. So height is not that important in badminton.

    height increase

    Thanks for you reply. The reason why I want to increase because I am planning to play at a college basketball team next fall, when I actually get enrolled. I believe that this may improve my game and make me a more versatile player. Do you know what these college players do to increase this much?
