    Being in Jamaica, and communting over 100km per day makes for very little badminton but I do get in about 2 days a week. However I don't follow international players... if only badminton was more accessible I'd play every day. There are times when I dream badminton (sigh)

    i love badminton and almost everything about it. gets me good exercise and good lungs. i enjoy smashing those birds. i can't enough of it. but however i think it's a boring sport to watch and thats why it's not so much popular.

    Traffic is a pain but I have to bear it. It takes between 2-3 hours to get to where I train depending on the traffic. If I get a vehicle to borrow, it takes me about 1 hr 15 mins. So of course, I have to plan the days I train in advance since so much time is spent travelling.

    I've been playing badminton for quite a long time. But never have I felt better in this game until I started watching professional badminton players. I get tips from them and from the commentator (in the likes of Gillian Clark). And somehow, I absorb their movements.

    In this forum, I was able to read that muscle memory work at its best when asleep. Well, before I sleep, I watch a good badminton game until I doze off. That way, my brain would process memorizing the proper footwork and techniques in hitting the birdie. There's no scientific basis here. But I am telling you, it works. I think I'm in level B now.

    I'm number two...
    I'm still in a very beginner level though, and I follow the tournaments (even though I can't watch often)

    I love watching badminton and reading all the entries here. Used to play some badminton in my younger days. The younger generation is luckier nowadays. I love the game never miss the matches played if I can.

    I voted number 3,

    the problem is, I really follow the pros, but I'm not able to go to tournaments, yet I do follow them on the internet etc..

    And I play badminton often (bit too often for my body as it seems)

    I picked number 3 also because Australia never show badminton on TV so all the results are obtained from this forum or youtube.

    no regret no surrender.
    Surely I am no 2 type of badminton fan.
    Even not every time able to watch live, but still can cope with you tube.

    Australia doesn't have ESPN or Star Sport. I'll just watch off youtube instead.

    Maybe I need to get a life, I'm a strong 2 on your list. I play at least five times a week and live about 5 minutes away from some very nice indoor courts that only cost about $3.00 US per hour. Here in Thailand my satellite tv provider has replays of the big tournaments on almost everyday and I watch them almost everyday. At the recent Thailand Open I went everyday, I was one of maybe 20 people who watched Lin Dan play his opening match at 9:00 in the morning, I was in heaven. I also had front row seats for the finals. Even when I'm not at the courts, I'm out in the yard trying to teach my 6 yr. old daughter and she really loves to play. It's a great sport, I guess I am a true badminton geek.
