    Although annoying, It's okay to do that but if your opponent does that when you are about to take your shot, then that's is not okay and is consider a forfeit. (Law 13.5)

    Yeah true, to me, if people want to shout, its fine with me, its irritating but so long they don't do it to deliberately distract me then i'm ok with it.

    But to me, whenever i see someone shouting when they smash i ask them if they have constipation.

    I think it is worse when your opponent shouts AFTER the smash. In all meanings!

    Recently I've played against a person I didn't know. We played a double game. So in a rally I smashed directly at him (his chest), he tried to return the shuttle, missed, then he droped his racket, rose his hands (one at the level of his eyes, another - to the chest level) and shouted sth like 'Oh, god'! Man, I was shoked, I couldn't even find words to explain that I'm sorry (I didn't even think that the smash wasn't hard at all and the shuttle couldn't do him any harm hitting like that). While I muttered apologises my partner calmly said: "Don't mind him - evrthng is ok with him - he always behave this way when missing birdies". His partner also said sth like this. Finally this guy stopped shouting and picked up his racket as if northing has happened.
    Well, it's all very well with them - they played with him before and got used but personally I was a bit lost for a couple of minutes after that. Quite a nasty habit in certain circumstances I should say.

    At least he didn't roll around on the ground (like soccer players) groaning and holding his chest. I guessed no one has ever told these guys that they are being overly dramatic and making themselves look like fools.

    I remember a mens doubles match I saw quite a while back. One guy in particular had an "interesting" way of releasing his frustration at losing a point. He would throw his racket to the floor, get down on his knees and bang the floor while using a few choice words to describe his opponent. After a few seconds of venting, he would get up and continue as if nothing had happened. This was a Division 1 game in the Cardiff League (S. Wales). Not sure if it was a normal thing

    I know a boy who is totally calm all the time during the game, he doesnīt even open his mouth or do anything with his face. But then if he loose a game he brake his raquet totally in thousand parts and sometimes he distroys even the shuttle.. I understand somway the shuttle but the raquet....huh... and sometimes he screams bad things... I canīt understand this kind of behaviour!!!

    Wow! That guy must be loaded or at least, his parents are. So, the question is how many racquets does he go through in a session (assuming that he gets to play more than a game)...

    Default Re: Shouting rules

    Whilst perusing the laws of badminton, I came across the following under Section 3 - "Recommendation to Umpires"

    a) 3.8.2 A player shouting to a partner who is about to hit the shuttle should not necessarily be regarded as distracting the opponents. Calling 'no shot', 'fault', etc should be considered a distraction.

    Does this mean that if you call "no shot" or "out" to your partner to let him/her know that the shot is going out is consider a fault?

    and

    b) 3.8.6 Law 13.6; a double hit by one player with one stroke is not a 'fault'.

    I would assume that this means that if you hit the shuttle twice in the same stroke (swing) and got the shuttle over, it is considered good.

    Nope, I don't shout or grunt when hitting a smash, but once in a while when I'm trying to have fun and poke fun at people who do, I shout while doing a DROP. Hey, maybe it will trick them to expect a smash, and generally it brings a smile or laugh to whoever who is watching the game

    And by the way, I'm new to these forums, hope i haven't done anything wrong.

    /EDIT oh shoot i just noticed this is a really old thread =(
