    btw now im 18 years old.. thats my story about the best badminton time of my life (playing wise)

    I have decided to take part in some of the "minor" competitions as I am getting a bit fed up of getting to only the first or second rounds of the natinal tournaments also as they are about 50miles from my home it doesn't help
    So I am going to try and win these smaller tournaments and still take part in the "bigger" tournaments I.e yonex sponsored ones when they are closer to my house and not on the same day as these other ones

    For tournaments in my club (which has a lot of players, I mean about 7,000), I have never come first in my life - in fact, I've only ever come 3rd once. My results are as follows (my Club Ranking on Ability For Age is 18th, but I am ranked 7th for my Age Group and below).

    Whole Club Tournament (i.e. U18)

    Rank 36: x1
    Rank 37: x1
    Rank 39: x8
    Rank 40: x6
    Rank 41: x7

    My Age Group Tournament

    Silver Medalist: x2
    Bronze Medalist: x5
    Semi-Finals: x11 (was once knocked out by an astonishingly precocious boy who was 6 years younger than me)
    Quarter-Finals: x21

    the number of trophy earned does not determine how good you are. If I wanted to, I could enter myself to a few small district tounreys next months and bag myself 4-5 trophies, but whats the fun in that ? it is not challenging and hardly motivating ? and does that make me a better player with 4-5 more meaningless trophies.

    Thumbs up Graded tournaments are organised for players to be motivated for BIGGER challenges

    It's good that you think like that.

    The graded tournaments are organised for players to be motivated for BIGGER challenges as they become better.

    Let's look at our National players. After having won some Future Series tournaments, they should try to win some International Series tournaments. And after having won some, they should move up to the International Challenge tournaments, then to Grand Prix. Then moving up to Grand Prix Gold and finally arriving at the Super Series tournaments.
    Click HERE for the BWF Tournament Levels

    It would be meaningless for Lee Chong Wei or Lin Dan to still participate in International Series tournaments. On the other hand, it would be too ambitious for players who couldn't win at Future Series tournaments to try Grand Prix (probably they would not get through at the Qualifying Rounds).

    Local graded tournaments are organised for players to monitor their progress as their skill levels become better. It is meaningless for a player to forever staying in a grade where he/she has won many trophies.

    In the place i train, i belong to the weak team. I am the first batch of student. Even though the coach is my father, and my father has built so many champion until today and i only get one group champion in primary school.
    Until today, my father has send so many of his champion into Malaysia team but until today just left 2 player which is Lee Chong Wei ( world no.1 man single ) and Chin Ee Hui ( Malaysia best woman double player ). and 6 more youngster inside there training.
    Even though my father is a great coach and i did not show any result but i din't feel anything cause some of father is very difficult to teach their own son. no patient....... .

    I agree with you ......
