Alright. So, I'm about to organize a tournament in our office. Levelling will start this April. In our previous tournaments, we hire organizers to hold the event. But since we're cost-cutting, they gave the responsibility to me, being the consistent champ in our office (my officemates are not strong players and not as addict as I am in badminton). I pretty much have an idea of how to level the players. I usually go with my gut feeling. The question is, what do you think is the best way to grade them in the technical aspect?

*It`s rather difficult to tell a man`s level who is both physically and psychologically stronger and tougher than you.It`s easier for someone in your level or better perfomers to tell you what level you`re in.When you travel to some other countries and play some local tournaments,you`ll realiz what level you are in too if there was a grading system.If there was one I would say this for both mentally and physically:
*I believe there`s a time table for every individual because for me badminton is a life not just a game.It`s easy for everyone to reach advanced level.Although not everyone has the chance.
*I`d make up a chart and a plan for ones who needed it for educational purpose.

I like what is used in the grading in badminton tourney in Melbourne. The normal practice is the alphabetical grading. Where Open refers to players that are at a professional or competitive level.
Open - Profressional, Extremely competitive.
Grade A - Very Competitive
Grade B - Competitive
Grade C - Slighty Competitive
Grade D - Regular Social player.
I like the way it is done so i am able to tag people with their skill level..

Grading is a subjective thing. You need to see it to give a certain grading..
For person that is least knowledgeable in badminton will think a Grade C player is GOD. Else when a Open grade player will see a B grade player as a C grade..
All in all out own judgement would be the best.

Grading can be abused/misused
And grading can be abused/misused.
In Australia, grading is used not only to identify one's skill/ability. It is used as a structure to group players of identical skill levels to challenge each other at tournaments.
It is hilarious to find players saying that they are of higher grades, but when entering tournaments they enter in lower grades.
It is hilarious to find a player winning C-Grade tournaments for years on end, and not allowing others to win some trophies. And we have names for these players; We call them 'trophies hunters'.

running into the same issue that everyone is trying to solve here in this thread.
my company club is getting a constant stream of new members who are usually new hires as well as people who have played badminton before and is interested in joining the company club.
since we are kinda loosely organized it is important to know at what level the new member is at, mainly to facilitate referring to the appropriate sub-group of club members matching his skill level.
but as mentioned, everyone seems to classify themselves as intermediate or beginner, and in reality, there are many more shades of grey within each category.
i like the modified NTRP grading system by surge. partly because it is rather detailed, and partly because it avoids labels like beginner/intermediate/advanced. since no one want to be called beginners, and no one think they are qualified to be advanced.
however, i also see that the detail for 2.0->3.5 might be a bit too spread out, while 4.0->5.0 might be too compressed. most people i know fall into 4.0->5.0.

I guess I can be 2.5 or 3.5, or simply beginner/immediate level.
