    hi ... very simple to check ...
    just simply rest your sole on the ground and check if there is an arch at the inner side of your foot .. meaning if u r looking at your right foot, then the arch should be visible at the left side...

    if there isnt any arching then welcome to the flat footed club

    That's not actually a good test.

    Many people do not see a visible arch -- at least, not what they imagine an arch should look like. And so they falsely believe they are flat-footed.

    A better test is this: stand on your tiptoes. If you can do this comfortably, then you are not flat-footed.

    If you want more visible proof of an arch, see the shape of your footprint when your feet are wet. You are not flat-footed unless it leaves a complete foot outline.

    it affects everything - a flat-footed player is always a split-second or even a second late gettng from one place to another. and you just by listening to a player's footsteps during a game if he or she is flat-footed. their whole foot touches the floor with every step making it sound like their stomping around the court. it's curable though. you only need to practice walking around on tiptoes and doing footwork drills. one thing that really helps is doing that thing we usually see in movies where soldiers in training run through a field covered with tires. it's guaranteed to fix flat-footedness.

    i really dont think flat feet play any role in making u crappy or good....im flat feeted, i won western ontario conference last year....but it affected my knee alot, my knee cap was rubbing my other bone due to a enlarged muscle in the inside of my legs like the groin area but lower......i had to go to physio....they teach me to do excersise to make my outer bum muscle to be stronger so it will balance the two muscles....after a month i was fine....if you are flat feeted i suggest you get orthopedics...they have helped me alot, i just wear them when i play sports. i think u can get just as much speed as people wiht an arc, the effort difference is minimal....and what the guy above me say, i dont think that fixes flat footedness lol, that just makes u build ur leg muscles when u play badminton and play on ur tiptoes more easily, doesnt fix ur flat foot.

    im flat footed.
    it sucks cuz most times when i play badminton, my feet will ache soo much that i have to stop and let it rest. i dont find that having flat feet makes me slower but causes more pain.

    fortunately,i have a normal foot..i guess for those flat footed people who love the sport will have the chance to enjoy the game more.(by not thinking the false news that they couldnt be athletic coz theyre flat footed.)they still have the right to play whavever sports they like and love.period.
