Nice sport and can interact with many different ppl BUT there is one downside .. i must learn to control buying rackets on impulse ZZZ (too tempting after seeing all those new rackets )!

    So... Your collection of rackets will remind you of Badminton whenever you see them (whether you play with them or not).

    5 times a day.

    I wake up and I think about badminton, around 9:00 I get hungry so I think about food and have something to eat, then I think about badminton, around 1:00 I get hungry so I think about food and have something to eat, then I think about badminton, then around 6:00 I get hungry so I think about food and have something to eat, then I think about badminton, then around 11:00 I think about my wife . . . ., then dream about badminton.

    True story.

    Yes, but how often depends on my work schedule. I play at least 5 times a week, and as many as 9 times, plus 1 - 4 times a week on court coaching. 1 1/2 - 3 hours per session.

    No wonder you think so much about badminton, 'cos you are a coach.

    Now that we are arriving at the 2012 Thomas & Uber Cups (just weeks away), I am sure that 'Every minute of the day' would be catching up.

    I think I'm the only one of my club who is so obsessed with it, but due to that I've improved much faster than most of them.

    You are lucky that you are not working with Badminton sessions everyday, every week.

    I am a full-time Badminton coach; But only sometimes I feel stressed and feel tired with this favourite sport of ours.

    I play twice a week. I would have played more if I didn't have a job.

    'Every hour of the day' still ranks No.1 from our BCers' votes. This is not a surprise, since we are voting at a Badminton Forum.

    I think about badminton a few times a day. But strangely enough, I never had a dream (ie, while sleeping) about badminton.
