    How do you calculate these numbers of hours?

    I checked with a full time pro in HK and they do three full days and three half day training. This would come to about 30h a week.

    This article writes 12 year olds do 14 hours a week and I would guess a small number would get to England level.

    Hey -
    So i guess this is an update of some sort.
    So i have thought lots about everything, and after thinking this much i have decided to go to a badminton school in my 9th grade, where i will train 4 times a week, on the court, and 1 - 2 times in the gym a week. I've thought lots and this is my solution! I thank you all for your kind comments :) On my general play i have won 1 tournament and missed one because of a knee injury that i am still recovering from.

    That was all, thankyou for the continued support - Kindest of regards to you all!
