For instance, a typical "club" player at SGVBC is going to be better than 80-90% of all the players at other local gyms. The SGVBC club player would be considered advanced by those local gym players while they would be only average at SGVBC.
A strong "B" player from SGVBC could go to OCBC and play with the U.S. National Team and would be the weakest link.
So we would need some sort of common reference which is tough.
After some thought, I'd say roughly, we can break it down into something like this: beginner, intermediate, advanced.
Beginner: doesn't have a mastery of all the basic shots. Inconsistent. You can beat these people by just keeping the shuttle in play and they will eventually commit errors and beat themselves.
Between Beginner and Intermediate: These are "D" players.
Intermediate: has a mastery of all the basic and some advanced shots. Relatively consistent. To beat an Intermediate, you have to work to win the point, no freebies. These are "C" players.
Between Intermediate and Advanced. These are "B" Players.
Advanced: has a mastery of all the shots. Very consistent. These are "A" Players.

imho. the rating is so vague, it can only be used as a general guide. to be honest, if i look at myself, my performance vary from day to day between lower and upper intermediate. it will be difficult to tell others what kind of player i am. not to say trying to compare myself with other players.

Oops forgot about his racket...
Hmm, on that note, since you said the gender is a "he" and an "A" player, then my next guess is either James Huang or your master-teacher Mr. Alex Liang..?!?!?!..no??..tell me it's either one of them..hehe.
Hmm, and on the "beginner"(i know you are better than that, just using your words) side, hmm, could that player be....................you(since you are using 2u Ti-10s)?!?!hehe..

Meanings of Level of Play
What exactly defines the level of play, like what is asked in the public profile. Is it a letter grade system, where A is very experienced and such? Just wondering, because I've just been assuming this. Is there any special specification for the categories?

Hi there, i think what we are using to catergorise the level of play would be Beginner, Intermediate and Advance instead of Letter grade system like you said. Not sure though, and thats just my own understanding of the phrase.

Yea, that's what I used, but the more experienced posters/players here use letters, so I'm kinda in the haze on this.

i thought i was a low intermediate until i played with a high intermediate last weekend. I was revoke back to beginner.
then i played with my regular mates & felt like a high beginner again. i think it builds up slowly.

Beginner Level- Doesnt have a proper footwork, Weak clear, weak smash, couldnt do a proper backhand clear (often clear only half court), slow movement because no proper footwork.
Intermediate Level- Have a decent footwork, decent smash, decent clear (often clear to baseline), decent backhand, decent wrist skill, fast movement.
Advance Level - A very good footwork, very fast in movement, a very good wrist skill and deception, can do all clear properly (even can do backhand clear from end corner to baseline end corner of court) and i think u will know he is at the advance level when u heard their smashes or any regular shot with that kapowwww!!! crispy sound.
Pro level - International players of coz.

Here is my own personal how I rank badminton players when I give badminton lessons, it's ABCDE, and I divided the game in four aspects
Unfortunately, it's in french, if someone wants to translate the page 2, I'm too lazy
