    Dear BC friends,
    My friend told me that Jens Eriksen is a mechanic. Can someone verify that either this is true or below? and another thing, we are talking about players occupation... not about respecting them or not.... I think we need to stick to the topic....

    Except for China players(they are full time sportsmen), some

    EX. Wijaya is a pharmacist

    some Denmark players are doctors (incredible!!)

    Jens Eriksen is a truck driver

    Bach Howard is a supermakert cashier



    For Asia player, many of them go to differnet fields after retiring.


    EX. Sze YU and Gong Ruina become actors

    hi Jason

    I have the same question.


    I heard abour Jens Eriksen"s was a mechanic from a China report about few

    years ago. That was my first time to understand his ouucpation. However,

    during last Chinese Taipei Open, our commentator Lee Wei Zen(Taiwan former

    NO.1 MD player) said Jens was a truck driver .


    Well, I am also confused about it.

    Where'd you get that from? I've found sources saying it's in top ten, but none saying second.. seems that that is either Cricket or Volleyball from what I could find..

    Also, Taufik is secretly a pop idol type singer hehe

    That depends on which website and person who setup the website rates the sport. I should have said "one of the most played" instead of "second most played", that would be more appropriate. This website http://www.badminton.pdx.edu/ ranks baddy as second most played, being a baddy club may be bias.
    Another website http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sport rates swimming as most popular and most played over soccer.
    To me, soccer gotta be the most played and popular sport in the world. Now, which sport if not baddy would you rate as 2nd most played (not most popular). Swimming could be 2nd if you consider the number of people swim in swimming pool, ocean, lakes...home jacuzzi tub (maybe that does not count)and everywhere else. In the local gym I go to, basketball, swimming, baddy are most played consistently.

    However popular Badminton may be, if you count a sport's potential as who plays it multiplied by their available income, it's far below sports like rugby, basketball, ice hockey etc. It's just not popular enough in the wealthy countries of the world.

    Seeing the players occupations has been interesting ,

    but also

    quite saddening because players train so hard - yet still work to earn a steady income...

    Badminton has to be the most underated sport in the world?

    most of the current players of the indian senior team are employed with major government run companies.

    as a matter of fact "the petroleum sports promotion board" is a major entity providing the players with a job safety allowing them to pursue their playing activities.

    as OH has mentioned in a earlier post
    CHETAN ANAND is employed with ONGC- the Oil & Natural Gas Commission of India
    ANUP SRIDHAR is employed with BPCL - Bharat Petroleum Corporation of India
    ANAND PAWAR is employed with AIR INDIA
    ADITI MUTATKAR is employed with Bharat Petroleum as well (she is under probation at the moment)
    AJAY JAYARAM is employed with Indian Oil
    DIJU V(dbls player) is employed with ONGC
    B R MEENAKSHI(dbls player) is employed with Indian Oil
