How do I gauge my level of play or skill
I believe this question was asked a million time but I can’t seems to find it in this forum…how do I gauge my level of play or skill. I see ppl asking for beginner (high/low), intermediate (high/low) and xpert…well I dot think I am there yet. So is there a way to know my level, I don’t want to ruin other ppl game when they are intermediate and I am actually a beginner. Thanks ppl

I think alot of people think that way as well but if you can get a friend which is intermediate and doesn't mind playing with you. You should just practice playing half the court 1v1. You will improve very fast and then you will be able to play with other people. GL

When you lose to people wearing baseball hats and untied basketball shoes, you are a beginner.
When you lose to people with warm-up routines and good backhand clears, you are an intermediate.
When you never lose, you are Lin Dan.
Seriously, it is only hard to know how good you are if you play the same people all the time. But if you play in several places against lots of different people, it doesn't take long to figure out where you sit in the grand scheme of things.

The reason that you can't find a definitive answer on this forum, is that there is no answer to something so subjective. One person's pro is another person's beginner.
Never be afraid to try out a new group, though accept that you may only get 1 game before being told (hopefully politely) that it's a "no".
Every club I've played at allows most people to try out. Sometimes, it's obvious from 1 game, sometimes a decision is made over 3-4 weeks.
Naturally, the stronger players in a club want to play with & against one another. However, they need to realise that if they don't play a mixture of games with all members of the club, the weaker members won't improve & the whole club will suffer.

film yourself hitting a few strokes, esp. high clears. That's normally enough to judge one's skills.
