    Default Still Looking for Flight C/D Level Player in the South Bay!

    i usually play doubles and am looking for someone who can show up consistently at least once a week to play together and possibly play in open tournaments this coming year. i mainly play in the south bay. i have traveled as far as south san francisco but would rather not travel in order to play. if you've played in california then you would have an idea of the level i'm asking for in flight C/D. on a good day, i'm a C+ player, on a bad day, D+. please PM me so we can set up a time to play together to see if we can be partners for men's doubles.

    If you're still looking, then I'd be willing to play on the weekends. I usually have a partner I play with on the weekdays, but still looking for someone/group to go with on weekends. I played 4 years in high school and have played pretty consistently for the past year. C/D men's doubles player. I usually play around burlingame area, but I'd be willing to go down to sunnyvale if it's a good spot. Let me know.

    How do you determine your own level? I've never played in a tournament but is there some kind of point system like in ping pong clubs?
    I make 1-5 serve errors, couple stupid serve-reply errors, and maybe a few easy-I-am-so-ready-hey-where-is-the-birdie errors each game. Does that make me a C/D/E player?
    Just curious

    From what I know, it's kinda just based on what you observe and experience. I think with badminton as with most hobbies/activities that you get better at, you'll realize that there's a lot of intricacy that you missed previously. There's no official system. Most players on the challenge courts are C/D level players (I believe D is the lowest you'll see in tournaments), although some may be better. Everyone makes errors, although the less unforced errors, the better. I think if you were to really give it a binary categorization, then it'd be this question:
    Can you hit the shots that you want to hit with reasonable consistency?

    I know i'm a C/D player because I've played in a couple of tournaments at that level.

    Can be anywhere from 30% to 70% depending on the phrase of the moon... especially the sliding dropshots.

    Don't worry about it. If u just keep playing u'll get better!

    Also, you could probably search youtube for home videos at tournaments of C/D level players to give you a more concrete idea.
