    That's where instant slow mo replays of important rallies from different angles can make it more interesting and more involving for the viewers.

    All England broadcast is best for that imo. They fill the in between time with that. Allows us to appreciate the incredible finesse and speed involved.

    BWF laws of badminton are farcical at best and the interpretation of those rules by officials leave a lot to be desired. Leniency should not be a given, these are professional players who represent the pinnacle of the sport. As for coaching between points...surely it is in direct contradiction to the law

    16..4.1 Under no circumstances shall play be delayed to enable a player to recover strength or wind or to receive advice.

    especially when you see players wandering around the rear of the court speaking to their coaches between points.

    umm, its a bit strong saying this.
    at the recently completed oz superseries, i thought the umpires mostly will caution the players
    who wander toward the seated coach.
    you, sir/madam, is a bit economical in you quoting the rules of badminton....
    further on in the rules, there is the one -

    15.5.1 Only when the shuttle is not in play (Law 15), shall a player be permitted to
    receive advice during a match.

    Default 16.5.1

    Point taken. But what constitutes not in play?

    The period between when the shuttle is on the floor to when it is picked up or the point between when the player(s) feel they are ready to resume play because they have got the advice they want?

    The rules are too loosely defined and it seems with each ratification become more self-contradicting in what it is trying to achieve.

    I bring to attention the recent women's doubles bronze medal match at the Commonwealth games, English coaches heckling the umpire, trying to influence him to to warn the opposition for time wasting*? I don't ever recall this happening before coaching between points was introduced?

    * just because someone else does it better!
