I would first segment the players based on the ability to hit the shuttle along with knowing the strategies of the game.
The next group would be based on the potential for "financial benefits" from playing the sport, example scholarships, sponsorships, endorsments.
The sub-categories for Competitve Players are not definitive and there are some over-lap.
- very little skill
- good serves
- able to hit consistently forehand smashes, drops, clears, & OK net shots
- poor backhand clear (or looks like a tennis backhand)
- basic footwork & knowledge of defensive/offensive positions & transitions
- can return (lift) smashes and get to some drop shots
- excellent tight serves with variety
- able to hit effective smashes, drops, clears, & good net shots
- able to hit proper end-to-end backhand clears & drops (down the line)
- good footwork, able to get to all corners efficiently, along with endurance
- can communicate well with partner & make proper def/off transitions
- can return smashes that force your opponents to lift
- can attack low serves
- very strong forehand & very tight net shots
- effective backhand smashes, clears & drops
- very good deceptive shots
- can return (place) a smash that wins the rally consistently
- can consistently finish/win the rally when playing the net offensively
Collegiate / Provincial Players
National / Semi-Professional Players

Just another two cents:
Low Intermediates, know all the strokes and can perform them consistently. But accuracy and quality may still need some fine tuning. Game play still plain.
High Intermediates, know all the strokes, consistent, accurate to a certain extent and have a bit of game play trying to make people run.
Low Advanced, know all the strokes, consistent, accurate, plays will a well devised game plan. Bottom line: Experienced.
High Advanced, same with low advanced just more experienced, more cunning and wiser in his selection of shots or physically tougher. High chance of entering the quarter finals in local events. Exclude the professionals and ex-professionals.
Not as defined as Mongoose's but my 2cp worth. Btw, Mongoose, playing this sat at IMH?

Excellent ideas and proposals everyone!
Keep the suggestions coming.
We'll slowly fine tune the ratings until hopefully we can adopt a pretty common one that we can use within our local context so as to give each other a better idea of the standards of players/groups.
This in turn hopefully will be a fair assessment if we wish to organise friendly matches, mini-tournaments etc.
To Iwan: Tmrw I won't be playing at IMH. Most likely playing at JE instead.

but if there is standardisation, it would be better

My ladder system
in my prior posts, i have been using the grading system like in school, A,B,C, D's
Pros : seasoned pros who currently compete at the highest level
A+: (elite) Ex Pros (see above) who have competed as pros but no longer compete at the highest form to top Pros from some lower ranked countries like canada. They are or were once represented as nationals
A: (top advanced) Tops players in their city or provinces or states
A- (advanced) Top players in their high school but not good enough to be pick by their state or province.
Intermediate Grouping Competed in local tourneys. Had some partial training.
B+: high intermediate, occasionally win some local tournaments
B: entered some tournaments but dont win anything worth mentioning
B-: low intermediate
Recreational Grouping Never took any lessons or just started in lessons. Play somewhat regularly. Play for fun and fitness. Expressed some interest in badminton theory but not a lot.
Beginner Grouping Just started less than 1 year ago, plays on and off, never took any lessons, formal or informal. Interested in finding advanced equipments / clothing than a good coach

I wonder if badminton can adopt & adapt the players rating found in golf and squash.

So far I have also received many useful feedback outside this boards.
Several players feel that the ratings may be better received if they could be in the form of "numerical ratings" like in the tennis NTRP system (eg 2.5, 4.5) instead of "descriptive ratings" like Beginners, Low Intermediates etc.
The reason for this is that not many people like to rate themselves lower than what they think they are.
Many "good" and experienced players would like to see themselves as Advanced or High Intermediates.
Yet they know that they are not even comparable to top under-17 school players who are not even in the national youth training squad.
So a numerical rating like 4.0 will be much "kinder".
Even local squash and tennis use A, B, C - F grading in local tournaments. Perhaps they too have explored these issues before they finally decided on the non-descriptive ratings.
Hmm... we're definitely getting closer. Keep 'em coming dudes!

on a competitive level, numerical system is more accurate for seeding but ABCD system is general enough for most players.

Perhaps we should just forget about the classification and just play. With a little more patience, I believe players of all skill levels can still enjoy a nice game of badminton without the need for everybody to live up to some tag. Especially when for many of us, our skill level changes drastically during a session becoming real bad near the end when we are dead tired. :-)

in tennis forums, players sound out their NTRP ratings when looking for players so that they get players of similar standards and the games are more enjoyable that way

Agree with this ranking. I think the Aussies does this for tournaments, they have grade A, A+, B, C and D. Which is good for those who wants to get a shot at their own levels. After winning a grade, its promotion time. No such thing as demotion. No pain No gain.

yo guys, I've developed an online Badminton Skill rating system, perhaps we now can standardise with this system? I know it's not perfect, but at least we start with something first than fine-tune along the way.
