    well I think this is a tough question. because if you are getting cheered at you would get more encouraged...but...soe people would find it quite distracting.
    So, the solution to that would be that do what the person playing wants.(loud/quiet)

    ps.not sure if this would help

    loud is the excitment! it gets players pumped up and they'll try hard. in professional badminton, at match point; its common to see a player hand gesturing to the crowds to cheer him/her on.

    Spot on. It just seems unsporting to make noise during play. I always feel sorry for rugby or football players have a constant noise to distract them.

    crowd should make noise when ever they want. just like basketball and football. basketball courts gets really noisy especially near end games.

    I prefer a bit of sound but not dead quiet. It feels creepy playing badminton in a place with no sound apart from the sound of shuttlecock being hit.

    I am a Line Judge and worked in the cauldron of the recent Thomas/ Uber Cup Finals in Jakarta and wish to comment about playing when there is a loof noise.

    The crowd who were extremely knowledgable about badminton got behind any team particularly if Malaysia were playing as they did not want them to win at any cost. They were singing in tune by the thousands most of the time and shouted ooh! when their own player hit the shuttle or aah! when the opponent played their stroke.

    This noise was continuous throughout most of the matchs and if there were Indonesian players on court then the roof lifted off at every stroke.

    Did any of the players from either side take any notice of the noise?

    Not a bit. In fact if the volume subsided a little then the players made gestures towards the crowd to lift the volume.

    I had to sit with ear plugs in both ears to protect my hearing as the crowd were at full volume less than 0.5 metres behind me. Could I (or any of the players) hear the Umpire who was using a microphone. Absolutely not. We as line judges had to rely on lip reading and following the score then following set procedures.

    This was a fabulous atmosphere and if the top players in the World can cope with this level of noise then I am sure that any of us mere mortals should just shu up and put up with what we see as noise.
