Cedric’s Answer

Playing competitive sports can bring out the best in people. It can teach discipline and endurance amongst other beneficial qualities. The level of competition one is willing to take on is really up to them to determine and for others to give you the opportunity. You should start with an honest assessment of your skills as an individual and then compared to others in your field. First look at the things you do well and hone those skills while also taking the time to look at your areas of opportunity and where you can improve and ask others in your league or in the league above yours how you can improve these deficiencies. After that, it is up to you to work on these skills until you notice improvement in your game. Then, others will begin to notice the improvements in you. Ultimately, your ability to play in any league will be determined by the time you are willing to put in to get better at your sport each day.

Cedric recommends the following next steps:

Skills assessment
Ask others about your skills (ones you're good at an ones you can improve upon)
Time to put in the work

If you really passionate about this sport, I would say you go get it :)

As an athlete it’s important to choose an educational institution that will work with you to achieve your aims; both for your education and your sports career. There’s a vital trio in the sport education setting – you, your performance lead, and your course director. It is so important to get both to understand about the other activity, and that one activity can actually benefit the other. Choosing the right course and university can help. But building these relationships and communicating early and effectively can make all the difference in balancing sport and education.

You are 20 yrs old and that is great age to be good at a sport. Since you are already playing at the state level and I am guessing doing well there, you should definitely give playing at the internation level a shot. Also remember to have a back up plan in case it does not work out for you in the next 2-3 yrs as the life of an internation sportsmen, esp in badminton is very short. A good education or acquiring another skill can help with a backup plan. All the best!
