    send her to china now!! Jk, once she is old enough get her into playing the sport early, then get a coach. if she is good and once she is older she will get a sponsorship, then u just keep getting better, play regional tourney, then national, then international, when ur old enought i guess somehow the BWF makes u pro and stuff

    The earliest I've seen is four... they train with the club pro once or twice a week, basically hitting around a balloon with a badminton racquet. At age six or seven they join little-kid lessons and have a lot of fun!

    Most important thing now is to promote being active. Get outside and play with her often. It also doesn't hurt to have her watch you play or such because it just causes interest.

    An interesting read:
