    These are approximate stats for my wife and I.

    Time/week = 8-11 hours each

    Costs/week = $25 club membership
    +$8 Feather Shuttles
    ========================
    Total Cost/week = $32 CAD (or $16 each)

    Then there are other costs like stringing etc. but to break them down per week would be a pain since we only re-string every 2-3 months.

    And mind you that's not 11 hours of full playing time. If you consider the amount of time waiting between games, actual playing times would be significantly less.

    For the last 2 months, I'v been playing only once (3 hours) a week due to my project which I mentioned in an earlier thread that asked the same question.

    How often do you play?

    Occasionally, I play twice a week. But I should be playing more often after this Wednesday because I've to hand up my project by then!

    Matt,

    I play about 5 hours per week (2x 2.5hr club nights) plus about 2 hours per week matches (averaged over a season)

    Costs are about UKP 160-ish club fees per season plus...bloody hell this is a real pain in the ass calculation ... UKP 3 per match, I guess about 16 matches per season. Then summer club is UKP 4 per session, so probably about UKP 50 for the summer.

    Raquets, Shoes, Petrol, Snacks, etc probably about another UKP 150/ year.

    It is left as an exercise for the reader to calculate the weekly expenditure

    Playing Time:
    Monday 2 hours
    Wednesday 1 hour
    Friday 2 hours

    occasionally (maybe once every 2 months) Sunday 1 hour
    plus away matches...call it 20-ish hours per year


    Playing Costs:
    Monday + Friday is a club which costs approx 150 GBP per year for courts & shuttles
    Wednesday is social so about 5 GBP between 4 people

    1 GBP per match so an extra 20-ish GBP per year


    Equipment Costs:
    wild guess...approx 200 GBP per year (if I bought 1 racquet per year)

    2. Cost -< about $3.5 US per week for club fee, which includes Nylon birdies. Also gas fee, which I estimate to be $2 US per week.
