    It was absolutely great. won 3 out of 4 but shoudl have won the last 1 if my BAD-minton partner was good enough. Ive never wanted to win so much in my life. 1st game was really hard and i was literally shaking cause the players look so intimidating. After i just scrapped a win, i finally got my confidence and was proving to be a huge threat.

    My tip is: never be nervous or intimidated - ur most liekly to losse so its actually better to be the 1 whos doing the intimidating unless u have moral issues. :)

    So how was ur 1st ever competetive match?

    congrats mate!:D

    but trust me, the feelign never fades..I've been in a lot of tourny's/ finals (regional youth tourny's, D-finals, C-finals..and recently my first B-final!:D) you'll always be nervous..If you're not you don't know what you're doing;)

    nerves mean, for me, you wánt to play/win...don't be ashamed to be nervous..

    though keep the confidence, that's certainly true...

    good luck in any further matches!

    yes, more tournaments u play, the more competitive experience u gain. This experience can not be obtain from training nor playing with your friends.

    When I'm in a tournament, I suck when I'm nervous and tense.
    I'm MUCH better when I feel relaxed and focus. :p
