    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.

    i find that its better to have 2 drill sessions (training) and one game session per week. repetative drills helps to improve you shots and footwork much more than playing. then play one game session each week to see which of these drills needs more practice. eg if your clear is getting better and drop still sucks then can adjust your training.

    i find playing too much not good cos your body is so tired that it cant perform at peak and it also burns you out. after each game/session, you may need to think about how to improve you game/gameplan than going out losing every night and feeling lousy. just my 2 cents worth.

    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

    I play two regular club nights per week plus a third if I'm doing nothing else, plus regular league matches, so in total 3/4 nights per week.

    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 now play 3-4 times a week:

    Tuesday: 8-10:30pm
    Thursday: 7-9:30pm
    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.
