Badminton is widely favoured across many world countries, predominantly Asian nations. In Vietnam, it is acknowledged not only as a sport but also as a means to enhance physical health and promote the cultural development of the populace. This study aims to identify several tests to evaluate the professional physical fitness of talented male badminton students at the Faculty of Physical Education, Ho Chi Minh City University of Education. The study utilized the standard research methods, including literature synthesis, interviews, and pedagogical assessments with statistical methods. Ten chosen tests were then used to measure the current fitness of the students. A scoring scale was also established to evaluate their performance thoroughly. Results indicate that 25% of the students have good fitness, 60% average, and 15% below average, but no students evaluated as excellent or extremely poor.
