About 3x a week, Mon, Thurs and Sat. about 4 to 5 hours. If with training then Sat is about 6 hours. Luckily am part owner of a badminton center so I save a bit on the rates....

monday, during a 3 hour long break between classes.
mainly helping a friend pick up the game. the odd game with another few friends. i don't bother changing most of the time.
tuesdays and thursdays, again, during a 3 hour long break between classes.
these are my more serious days, since the "regulars" are present.

search the forum for videos. there are some good videos that will show you different footwork drills and also single/double strategy. the foot work drills can be done at any open area or home.
when i first started training on footwork, i ended up playing worst game than before. then i realised that its becos its not second nature yet. should train you foot till like changin gear when driving, you foot just know waht to do without thinking. then game will start to improve again

On Sunday's i play for 2 1/2 hours with friends
On Monday's i have 2 hours of training
On Tuesday's i play for 2 hours with club friends
On Thursday's i play for 2 1/2 hours with friends with some training
On Friday's i play for 2 hours with other friends
Total around 11 hours per week
I really should be doing more training sessions each week for faster improvments but it's usually more fun playing games

I play every friday for 1 ½ hours... Maybe longer but see first... Because I am not in badminton and the school team players train on fridays and my badminton friends are there so... I think you should get what I mean

I now play 3-4 times a week:
Friday or Saturday: 1 hour lesson
Sunday or Monday: 1 hour lesson
I need more playing time.
My coach has the record I think, he plays every day of the week for at least 8 hours.
