What to do to stop sweating?
I usually heat up and sweat a lot while playing. Is there anything I can do before or during playing to stop sweating rapidly.

I think there are some sort of anti-sweat spray. If your forehead is sweating like there is no tomorrow, get a headband to soak up the sweat. For your body sweat, wear clothing that drys up fast. For arm sweat, wear armbands to prevent sweat getting onto the palm.

Like taneepak said, do not stop sweating. Just make sure it does not get in the way of your game.
My sweat management strategy includes
- microfibre towel that is easy to wring dry (from my swimming days) => infinite sweat absorbing
- 1-2 extra polyester T-shirts
- Wrist band to prevent the racket grip from getting too wet.
- 2 wrist bands for swap in case one gets too wet -- rarely need the 2nd one nowadays because I only play for 2 hours max2
- Use a badminton grip that still works well when damp. Currently using the Wilson X-Tra tack.
- I also have a similar 2nd racket just in case.
- drenched shorts. I dry it with the towel to some effect but the shorts still start dripping after a while. When the shorts get wet, they stick to the skin . It's not problem enough for me to need to change shorts yet but a problem nevertheless.
- socks getting wet but hasn't evolved into a real issue yet.

this question is akin to asking:
how to stop making gases after eating a bowl of chili beans..
i don't know how temperature hot the place you're playing in, but have you tried wearing less clothing?(i don't mean for you to go nearly au naturale, though)....loose-fitting tank-top, short??..

I change 2-3 shirt when playing badminton,
that's why i prefer playing it without shirt now
(ofcourse i can't do this in tournament)
Sweating is natural thing.

Do those fast-dry clothes help at all? Or are they just marketing hype?

Oh dear, this is what hapenned after playing five sets of singles, then lying on the concrete floor while wearing a Yonex jacket:
You do not want to see what happens when I sit down while/after sweating

The microfibre towel is critical for me. I use it to semi-dry my shorts even when it's dripping wet. Just takes a few wrings. I suppose you can do that with a huge towel as well.
So far, the microfibre towel is critical. I can semi-dry my shorts even when it's dripping wet. Takes a few wrings but works.
