    Would one be able to earn a living playing badminton these days ? I remember the biggest price money ever paid out to-date was USD 40,000 for single champion. Is there bigger price money than this ? How much do you think, Lin Dan or Chong Wei earn in a year playing badminton ?

    Dato forgot to add :
    1) 25% bonus of the prize money of all SS titles won
    LCW won 2 SS titles in 2008 = 25% of USD15K = USD3,750 X2 = USD7,500

    2) Quarterly incentive of being WR#1 or 2, RM45,000 X 4 quarters = RM180K
    3) Monthly pension of RM3,000 of being OG silver medalist, starting Sept 2008. RM3,000 X 4 months = RM12,000

    I have a quick question. In MAS, and in other countries, if a player wins a title, he or she gets all the prize money - 100%? I know it's only less than 50% in KOR even in doubles; all the prize moneys are managed by the Bad-Organ.

    :)

    Korean badminton is not alone..

    ..it's the same case for INA (PBSI) players as Korean players. As i've read through the many past posts, yes, definitely, absolutely, the bureaucrat body will also get a piece of the pie..;)

    That all sounds good if your name if LCW and you play for MAS, generous and deep pocket. What does other players who are in the national team and gets nowhere fast...don't forget that the players are investing their youth and if they don't make it, they are screwed and nobody to take care of them in later years...that is why I respect pro baddy players and have no problem seeing them make it big like LCW, TBH/KKK for therisk they take.

    LOL, RM500 (for back-up players) is barely enuf to survive in KL. They must work part-time or parents top-up.

    In Indonesia, players also get salaries. Like I read in newspaper, women's double player Vita Marissa wanted to negotiatie her salary. Her initial contract was Rp 300,000,000 (Three hundred million rupiah) per year. It's about USD 30,000 per year or more than 100,000 RMB per year. Not bad lah...

    Also the last time, they got 70 % from the prize money and 30 % went to PBSI (Indonesia Badminton Association). I don't know how the arrangement now. They also get a share from Yonex (depends on their wolrd rank, reviewed every quarter).

    I think now PBSI has allowed players from clubs to be sent for international tournament. Djarum has already done so (of course Djarum has a decent fund to send their players overseas).

    The Prize Money for Non Champion

    Just curious, is there any price for the player who lost in the first round, secound round, third round or quarter final in the IBF's Grandprix?

    I know in tennis, even a player lost in the first round, they still get the prize money (only in WTP, ATP tour) not so sure for Satellite or challenger tiers.

    For example, you can refer to this site:

    http://chinaopen2008.cba.org.cn/en/bulletin/2008-10-17/217376.html

    Note that the titles in the two tables were switched maybe by accident.

    I guess the percentages would be different depending on the tournament.

    prize money is peanut compare with the sponsor deals that the top players getting. Lin Dan reportingly earning in the region of 2 million USD in 2008, that's before he won the olympics gold. imagine how many folds increased since then!
