    I think that's wat people yell in one of those chinese badminton matches on youtube.
    Literally translated I would put "add oil". It roughly means put more gas in the tank.
    I.E. go harder, faster, stronger. As others have stated, it's a term meant to encourage someone to keep at it and play hard/fiercely.

    Hope that makes sense. It's kinda difficult to explain through typing.

    As both a player and an umpire. I would love to play in a loud surrounding. It would push me further when I play with all the (hopefully support and not the pressure from being in an away crowd)

    As an umpire, I definitely love to have a very loud atmosphere. It just makes me enjoy the match that much more.

    Between rallies as loud as possible^^ But within rallies only if it is long one and scream when players are smashing like your hear it in All England videos
