Thank you for checking out my Patreon page! As you (probably) know from my blog, my name is Badminton Becky and I am an American learning badminton in China. I document and share my experiences (both good, bad and embarrassing, mostly embarrassing) through my blog (www.badmintonbecky.com) and my vlog. I invite you to not only share this journey but join with me.

Badminton is an underrepresented sport in both in the sports world and the pop culture world in general. As fans of badminton we need to change that! We need to make badminton a more normal thing, and show off what a tough, challenging and amazing sport it really is.

So as a badminton fan I ask for your support and I try to make it worthwhile with several different support levels and perks. But perks isn't what it's really about, is it? It's more about building a community and making badminton heard in today's culture. I might just be one person shouting into the void about how awesome badminton is, but if you join with me our voices can be heard louder and clearer across the world! Please become a patron today and help bring badminton into the mainstream eye. Thank you!
Tiers
菜鸟 Beginner
$3 or more per month
This first tier shows a little love for all things badminton! You might not play as much as you want, but you know what an amazing sport it is and how great it makes you feel. 


*Get access to all the polls (where you can tell me things to do that I will show on my vlog) 


*Also get good karma with the badminton gods. 

中级 Intermediate Player
$5 or more per month
 You are a higher level player and win more than you lose. You enter local competitions and sometimes even bring home a medal!


Behind the scenes access. See what kind of work goes into making the vlogs and life of a badminton player in China. 


Shout out at the end of the vlog. When you sign up for this level I'll give you a personal shout out and thank you on my vlog. 


(Also includes beginner level benefits.) 

高手 Expert
$10 or more per month

You are the player everyone at the courts admires and wants to play with! As a gaoshou (expert) the other players look up to you and ask your guidance when playing games. 


Postcard from China! Sent once a quarter with a short personal message from me, this postcard will have a scene from around China, or specifically badminton (if I can find any!) 


Open invitation to play badminton with me and my club anytime you are in Xiamen, China, and I'll invite for late night BBQ!


(Also includes all beginner and intermediate level benefits.) 

专业 Pro Player
$25 or more per month

 You an elite player, the top 1% in the world. You can handle any shots that come your way with skill and ease. You are a badminton lover and it shows!


Ask a Chinese coach a question! After you sign up you can send me a video and I'll show it to my coach and film his reactions and suggestions on how you can improve. 


Rants! Only the biggest supporters can get a peek into what makes me mad. My rants can be pretty epic at times (and perhaps they are better if no one sees them--which is why they are behind the biggest paywall) and you never know what is gonna set me off. 


(Includes all other tier level rewards too.) 

Goals
7 of 24 patrons
The number of badminton world championships (including the upcoming 2019 one in Switzerland). Reaching this goal will prove that people love and support badminton and I'll make a special patron-only video.
