Im not a professional player, but Im just a guy who fell in love in Badminton after I finished my bachelor and moved back to my hometown. I personally seek and try to improve my skill day and night just want to see how far could I go. A lot of people tell me that yes I can keep training and playing eventually I will be able to play with ex-pro one day. It is possible. Ive seen a bunch of them done that ( the one who started late unlike most of the pro who train since 6-7 years old) I would say my ranking right now should be between intermediate and advanced. I could play with most club player. I still cant compete with the one who play for college or county yet. I mean I could play but I will need a really strong partner and we will still lose. I know there re still a lot of room for me to improve. Im not playing to win anyone but myself. I moved out of my first club because there is only few people there that could compete with me, but they are all so nice. They took me in since I wasnt able to perform a correct clear. I got coaching sessions then I keep training more and more till I could beat them almost all of them then I moved onto other club trying to seek for more challenge. Club after club I found out that most club players usually stick in one place. They love to play with each others on their own. Most of them are not welcome new guest. Everytime I join a new club. I always be nice. I play for everyone with anyone. I always tell the club leader that I can play for anyone im not piggy. I even play mixed for an old lady that no one ever care to play with because my first club raised me that way. And when I play with someone that weaker, I never want to humiliate them. Sometime my random partner make a mistake. I always told them thats its cool and its my fault. And in any club there gonna be a group of people who love to play among each other. Sometime when I join the higher rank at the certain club . First few day it will be alright. Then when I start to play for beginner they start look at me like a weirdo ( because none of them ever wanna step in to play with beginner) then I started to get zoned out. Then I just move to a new club because there is no point to hang around these jerks. However, club after club they are so many of them. I have seen some nice club too but their level doesnt attract me, so I couldnt stay. Now im so tired from looking for a club to join to improve myself. I need to find a new goal that make me feel like I wanna beat these pair one day. I actually have thought about move in to single , but in my country they are mostly double players based. I couldnt find any single club. Should I keep looking or change the way I think ? In my mind I wanna keep getting better and better, but I hate to see selfish people along the way.
