    more questions....

    What do you think about the scoring system in badminton for doubles?
    Which one do you prefer 15x3, 7x5 or 9x5?

    regards,

    5*9

    I would prefer if the scoring system was changed once again to 5*9!!

    This scoring system creates more exciting big points for the spectators and is not over too quick!!

    I think 5 to 9 is the correct length of a mens doubles match!!

    Between every set the media gets a chance to send some commercials!!

    if the scoring system is changed to 5x9, do you think is it necessary two serves in every possession for doubles?
    i think one serve in every possession is better.

    Well at the moment all doubles games are played 7x5 right? 15x3 is nice coz it always gives you a chance to try get back into the game. Today I played a best of 3 sets with this God awful Sri lankan ranked no. 2 and boy did he make me run for my money. But the thing is, he had a 11 - 2 lead but I got back right in there and won the first game at 15 - 12. Not bad, but 7x5 is ok as well I suppose. I guess having more sets to be played compensates for the lack of points per game. Then again, what do I know.
