i went to all england on the 5th of March. have to say was impressed with all our asian people cas we all were very loud but all the english people were too quite. i think you need to cheer your teams to support them and incourage them. so i think loud is deffinetly thumbs up but i think you should only be loud in between rallies like Tennis. well thats my opinion : )

When I voted, I voted that fans should stay quiet in between rallies like tennis. (I'm also a tennis player and I watch a lot of tennis)
But then I realized, that cheering when players are smashing or when there is a really good rally is somewhat unique to badminton. (Although I am an avid ping pong player, I do not watch ping pong competitions so I don't know how the fans are in ping pong.)
Badminton as it is right now has a really fun atmosphere and as a player, I would want the fans to be drawn to the match.
To the people that say that the fans should cheer in between rallies:
Although this may be ideal, but in many (all) badminton tournaments, matches are going on right next to each other. It's not like each rally is finishing at the exact same time. Yes, in between rallies would still decrease the noise, but it's not like the fans are cheering to distract the players. They are cheering to root for their player(s).
Country pride runs strong.

How will all of them fit?
They won't be able to see the match.
The court is too small.
Yes, I know you didn't really mean football crowds.
Or did you?
No, but seriously, I want to see the day where badminton players start earning more.

Loud noise in between rallies. It can be distracting during a rally to have 1 person yelling at you; I can't imagine a massive crowd yelling at you.
Of course, the gasps and cries of awe when a player makes am amazing shot are perfectly ok.

i find i zone out during a rally. Im concentrating purely on the shuttle and my oppononent and what im doing rather than listening or watching spectators around the court.
SO LOUD LOUD LOUD!!! so i can stop and hear when the points over

Loud... To make player spirit high enough....

I don't like it quiet. It makes me think that everyone is staring intensely at you, their eyes burning into your body, which makes me feel nervous and uncomfortable :P
But i don't like it really loud either like everyone is yelling and talking about all sorts because it makes my mind wander to what they're talking about. When i was younger i used to have a bad habit of daydreaming, and things like an interesting conversation nearby distract me haha :P
But i do like encouraging yells and the 'ooohs' and 'aaahs' because it fires me up and makes me want to play to the best of my ability And it makes me feel like people are interested in watching me play which feels so good

I do think too much noise may disturb the game and the players' concentration. Anyway, cheers in between rallies is always welcomed
06-01-2009, 09:14 PM #167
correct....i think it'sa individual problem don't always blame it on others...

I read some thread(about cheating If Im not wrong) , they say that some crowded only support for their player only . Sometime they disturb the opponent when playing(like out,in and etc.......) . Well , my question is , do this big national tournament have problem like this?
BTW , I follow my mood . Sometime keep silent , sometime loud when rally and sometime loud all the time(chaiyo,chaiyo!) .
