    Probably too late for that tournament. Just play for fun and experience. I think most pros train on an ongoing basis or at least have several months' time to prep for a major tournament. What you plan to do is like cramming before your finals... it doesn't work as well and it adds to your anxiety.

    Well, it wouldn't hurt to brush up on your badminton since you said you havn't played in 3 months :eek:!
    I was wondering why you would sign up for a tourny in the first place when you havn't been playing and are so busy with tae kwon do?

    Taekwondo's really good for the leg excercises. In my opinion, you should probably go there for the sake of experience of course and not to take winning seriously.
