For your wet grip problem, try not to hold your grip too tight because if you don't, humidity builds up since your palms are hot and the skin on your palm can't breath.

Getting referral to specialist in sports injury
This is to Omar_Zangetsu and anyone else following the mini-thread of seeking medical advice.
I think it's advisable to at least see a knowledgeable doctor to assess whether your injury is well on its way to recovery, since you're very young, but also to see if you require additional treatment to support the healing. For example, it's very common to start developing scar tissue from your soft-tissue injuries. Scar tissue, as it builds up over time, will increasingly limit your joint mobility, which will lead to poorer performance. I'm not a health professional; this is just from what I've read, been told, and personal experience.
Getting a referral to a sports injury specialist should not be too difficult. Insist that your family doctor give you a referral, or failing that, from personal experience, I know that going to the Downtown Doctors walk-in clinic at Bloor and Spadina in Toronto, will probably get you a referral to the University of Toronto's David McIntosh Sports Rehab clinic. I've experienced very good care there.

How long should we eat before playing Badminton?
This thread has gone quiet.
There is now a new thread created; regarding 'Concentration', located at:
Question asked is: How long should we eat before playing Badminton? 1hr?

Depends on what you are eating I would say.
For me, for breakfast or lunch, I would say 3 hours before. Anything less and I can feel my food in my stomach churning if I don't give it a good 2-3 hours to digest before games. Usually a good load of clean carbohydrates and protein does it for me (pasta or sushi peanut butter sandwich). No Indian mee goreng before games, please! If it were just a banana, power bar or something similar, on the spot is fine.
During games, isotonic drink + water + glucose does it for me. I always try to sip only a few mouths and resist the urge to slam down the whole can or bottle - but I usually fail and end up drinking 1 full can in about 5 seconds

Eating time before badminton
That utterly depends on how long and in what shape you want to be in. Firstly, eating proprerly the day before helps alot because your body will have long since digested, absorbed and stored the ingested nutrients.
As for eating on the day you plan to play, it depends on what you eat. If your meal contains meat, 3 hours is the recommended eating-before-playing-time.
Finally, if you are in a pinch, foods with lots of sugar are recommended (complex sugars preferably, because simple sugars are used too easily and quickly). I personnally suggest eating sweet cereals like "froot loops" or "lucky charms" (no milk or you will get a "stomach cramp").
P.S: It would be my pleasure to answer any other question regarding nutrition.

Magnesium: It's good for preventing cramps
"It was a three-set match and I drank 1.5 litres of water before the match and another 2.5 litres during the match, but still got cramps in both legs," Badminton legend Poul-Erik Hoyer Larsen (DEN) said. "I only learned later that it was not enough to drink just water, without the essential supplements such as magnesium."

Hey, if Nutrioutlet is still active answer this please
So yeah i play around 3 hours on saturdays, 7 PM - 10 PM, just wondering is this okay, i usually eat a 6 inch - foot long sub at subways before i eat, roast chicken breast =D, and just wondering is that enough or too much?

Personnally, that wouldn't be enough for me. I need at least twice as much.
But for you, it depends on your metabolism. If your body usually consumes a lot of energy/calories, you should eat more. Otherwise, you'll tire yourself quickly and it may become unhealthy if you continue playing on low energy reserves.
Also, the amount you should eat depends on the time you have to digest. It should be noted that, during exercise, you digestive system will slow down or even stop working. Therefore, having spare time to digest is highly recommended. I suggest you at least finish eating an hour before beginning exercises (half an hour at the limit).
Be cautious of meat, it takes time to digest, so don't eat to much of it right before playing.
also on the time to have to digest before playing.

I get hungry a lot of times. But I try to avoid eating that much before a game. However, during an intense game, when I get tired, I see colors everywhere. It's like there are flashes of light of different coloros flying around. It's really hard to explain how it looks like, but it's sort of like what happens when a flashlight is directed towards your eyes and then after a while, the light is still illuminating even if the flashlight has been turned off. In Starcraft, it's called optic flare, one of the special abilities of the medics.
I attribute this to lack of food. What I do is I stop for a while and then eat chocolate or anything sweet. Do you guys experience this?

I sup an energy drink all through my games and eat an energy bar beforehand

The same symptoms can be experienced if you have low BP (not Balance Point, but Blood Pressure! )
