    Exclamation Canadian National Juniors

    I play at the K-W Badminton Club and I was wondering how good i should be in order to go and do well at the Nationals. I am currently ranked 30th in Ontario but i expect my rank to be within the top 10 by the end of next season.

    Really depends what age group...btw, checked the rankings, no one exactly 30th from KW. Well, i also know that a lot of the people going from ON aren't in the top 10 because ON usually has a better level of players than the rest of CAN.

    dont worry about your rank this season, if you practice hard, and have a good coach, go for it anyway. Dont look for advice, the motivation is from within.

    If you have an OBA Card ( which means you are a registered player of the Ontario Badminton Assossication ) you can go on their website and they have the rankings there

    but the card is also used so you can play provincial tournaments... not really worth it to buy just to view rankings (since the season is over)

    as for whether or not you want to play.... it's always hard to say....think about this logically.... consider what your "true rank" within ontario should be... (your ACTUAL ranking can be innaccurate, since it is based on points... i remember being ranked above people who could beat me, and being ranked below people i could beat) and be HONEST with yourself, maybe even a little conservative....

    nationals is usually the tournament where anybody worth their salt will go... so if your true rank isn't within the top 10, that means you can't even get to the quarter finals (assuming only ONTARIO people get to the top)...but bear in mind (i'm assuming you are male) that british columbia, alberta and quebec are quite well known for having a large number of exceptional males.... so if your definition of "well" is quarter finals, then you probably won't do "well"

    but it's worth it to go to nationals if you have the time and money, even if you're going to get smoked to look at the level of badminton, and to get some inspiration....
