I just sprained my ankle after playing today and I have an upcoming company sportfest this coming Saturday Darn it.
What is the best ankle support to use nowadays? I need to buy immediately, I hope somebody can help me. Thanks.

My recommendation would be not to play at all. Ankles are very important in badminton and you'll have to use them all the time while playing. That'd make the condition worse.
I sprained my ankle badly about 2 months ago, and I came back to play after 10 days of rest (not at 100% though). Here are what you want to do:
2. Ice your ankle to prevent swelling
3. Compress your ankle slightly with bandage to reduce swelling
4. Elevate your ankle to prevent bruises
5. Cross-massage your tendon after a few days to help its recovery
6. Perform physical exercises to ease yourself back into the games
You are probably late for the first few items, but it's better late than never. Good luck and hope you'll get well soon.

I depends on how bad your condition is. I have sprained my ankle last time as well.
Things that i do :
1. Ice my ankle frequently for the next 48 hours. your ankle needs to be elevated.
2. The third day i go to see a traditional doctor, and they will massage my ankle.
3. I got my ankle massaged every once in two days.
my ankle condition at that time is really bad, and i am fully recovered after 1 month of resting.
After the accident i can't walk until the second day.
can you properly walk now?

My ankle is good now, I did all things you said last Monday and entered a Physical Therapy session everyday. The healing progress was fast.

Ankle pain is almost always caused by a lack of strength in the lower body/ legs. Work on the lower body excersises
