    It's through my club/coach. The head coach somehow managed to get Carlton interested in sponsoring the club and personally sponsoring the top 4 players in each age group and as I play number one under 15s and number 2 under 17s, I'm apparently eligible for Carlton to sponsor me. if you could get hold of a Carlton email address, I doubt they'd say no to you for at least a partial if you represent county. In fact, I reckon they'd probably offer you full - from the sound of the arrangement that is coming about with my club, Carlton can't be that strict on requirements. Such a shame Carlton don't have a web presence.

    I don't know how someone with that ranking can be modest, he must be a great guy.

    LOL, good point and full Carlton has to be better than Karakal partial (what I'm on now)

    I play under 15s and under 17s (I'm fifteen but I was fifteen after 1st January meaning I can still play at under 15s this season). I don't play for Nottinghamshire for 2 reasons really, the first and foremost being that there are a few people on the team I don't get on well (and have had some confrontations with) and the second reason simply is distance, the county team trains at Mansfield which is about 45 minutes from where I live. It doesn't sound a lot but that's an hour and a half round trip every training session and it's just really not convenient.

    Perhaps I should see if one of the county coaches could give me a tryout again. I guess it's kinda stupid that my main reason for not playing for my county is other people and I think I could somehow persuade my mum to take me to training sessions/matches. Anyway, if there is an update, I'll let you know.

    Our county training is 40mins+ from where I live, but you can't please everyone.

    No, that's so true and counties are relatively large so they've probably just chosen the most central place or something.

    What age group and county do you play in?

    I am 21, have been playing just a little over 2 years.

    Regarding the foot stance when i serve: I think its just been a habit since it allowed me to move more efficiently to the front of the net if they try to play at the net. Though i did think about it and practice with trying my racket foot in front and whilst it feels different, the serve seems more fluid or at least faster. Will try this stance more in the upcoming week to see if i can incorporate it.

    If not, it's still not a great issue and you'll be fine with the stance you showed in the videos.

    Other than the service stance, you're not too bad at all.

    The good thing about middlesex is we have two training groups - so the maximum distance we have to drive is 20 minutes.

    But this also means that it is pretty split up .

    My first impression was that you're not too bad. Not too bad at all.

    I'm going to watch the video at least once more before posting a full opinion on you but you don't look awful by any means, in fact, you're pretty good.

    I need to film a video of myself playing sometime.

    Yes, not bad.
    I would only say: try and keep your racket up and in front of you, not down by your sides or behind your head.
    And work on your movement, you still seem to react to shuttles as opposed to anticipating them.
    Hope this helps.
    Derek
