    It's a fitness test, so speed, strength, and endurance are all important.

    Because you wouldn't last very long if you didn't.

    Average distance you have to cover in badminton in a single game is about 3.7 miles. There's no breaks during the game. None. You get 5 minutes to rest in between matches, and then it's on to the next game. The problem isn't just the distance. You have to change your distance few meters, so you need to use your muscles to stop and reverse direction. This is also a lot more tiring than just running in a straight line. In addition, you'll have to do lots of jumping as well when you are attacking offensively. There's also the burst of upper body strength that is required when you are returning shots. The aerobic capacity required to play badminton competitively is akin to being able to run up stairs maintaining 10km/hr continuously for an two hours, with 2 short breaks inbetween. The difference between just fast enough and just a little bit too slow is the difference between returning the shots and losing 15-0.

    Quick article on it...

    I remember being a freshman in highschool and we'd always play it in our gym class. I don't know how many jokes we made about "shuttlecocks".

    :mamoru: Those were the days.

    Here's the conversions.

    3 kilometer = 1.86 miles
    400m = 1 time around a track (aprox. .24 miles)
    70 kilogram = 155lbs.
    100 kilogram = 220lbs.


    :bigok:

    Pretty confident about every one but the skipping one, I would have to practice that a few times before I try it.

    All. The 3km run would be the most difficult for me but should still be able to do it.
