Playing against a cheater affects your singles game?
Hey world, I just recently played a tourny at my skool and first round i had to play this guy that i beat in divisionals. So as we played, i was doing very well first game and i was leading 10-5. All the sudden he caught up to me and we ended up at 15-13. He makes a arguement with me saying it was 15-15. I was like "no way, thats impossible im shouting out the score and its 15-13." Later i had to go get an offical to judge my game and we started off at 15-13. So i was leading up 18-17 and later he tells me "no its 18-20." So i went furious like this and said "you gotta be effing kidding me" and the judge also argued with the player. So later i lost that set and my temper raged. I tried my best to cool down when i had a break and drank some water and continue on with the second set. So i lost the second set 21-17 and the highschool badminton chairman had a chat with me and this poor sportmanship player. So i told her the story about my game and when it was the player's turn to talk, he said a whole bunch of lies. He said "i was confused" in between the game. So i furiously stood up and told him that hes a liar, theres no way u were confused if u were making a huge argument with me and the judge, he was not calling the score out and he didn't even pick up his shuttle after he lost a rally. So both coaches come in and had to talk with us. The other player's coach was absent during my game and she started talking like she knew everything. She refered me as a stubborn player and his player doesn't cheat. I completely flipped out on her telling her that she wasn't there to even witness my game. Just because hes the coach's player doesn't mean u can favor him and say "oh hes a honest player." This made me so angry for a whole week and i got 5 coaches telling the chairman that it wasnt fair for me. One of the coaches know his background and he was known for cheatingi So now i finally let it go. So i thought it would be something i like to share around this forum. Now i wanna know how to deal with people like him and what i should do next time. I was totally not expecting him to cheat.

When someone doesnt pick up the shuttle and send back to you after a rally, dont pick it up yourself. Tell them its a foul to cross the net and pick the shuttle. And WHENEVER THERE IS A BIG MATCH GOING ON, have at least 4 line mans and an umpire. Cant imagine an official game without these.

Keith is right. Its quite the courtesy to give the shuttle to your opponent. Badminton is a game filled with etiquette. his lack of participation is quite horrible, and should result in a penalty or forfeit.
Also, it seems like he was screaming at the scoring judge. that, to me and the league i play in, is an absolute NO. it is explicitly stated to us that and commotion such as arguments will result in an automatic forfeit.
Lastly, in a future situation, try to keep your cool. seeing as most knew of the injustice, they probably viewed you in a better light. If you keep you temper under control, you look saintly. Plus, if you know you can beat the player, and the player cheated, you should be able to walk with your head held high.

Just beat him up, you can use an old racket and smack it across his head.
Use an old racket cos you might break it.

Wow back when I was in highschool in doha college I found it so hard to find good players in qatar. Do you play at the badminton courts where doha college is? or are they more courts now?
To the OP, well he wouldn't go far by cheating, stick to your game and better luck next time!

Actually badminton is still DULL here as far as courts go. QBC (near doha college) still has only 2 courts and dull lighting. Al Arabi Sports club has got good courts and they have been hosting Qatar Open. Theres one coming up next month, for Juniors.
And there have been rumors that they're gonna start a federation here for badminton. Hope for the best !

yeah cheaters always get me frustrated... i versed this one person that even when the shuttle lands a foot away from the line, he thinks it's in....

They think that if they cant reach it, its out !

If he doesn't pick a shuttle up after loosing the rally - just walk away.
I was playing a match today , and the person got angry and launched the shuttle at the net - and wanted me to pick it up.
I just walked away , to the back fo my court and gave him my evil eyes until he eventually picked it up
