Badminton Racket


Badminton is a game that uses racquets to hit a cock across the net with two players per side. Are you a badminton Lover? Do you have interest in knowing about it? Find out more below.


It is always better to restring your racquet than to attempt to repair the strings. Yonex Stringing Team Senior Badminton Stringer, Mark Lawrence,  gives advice on what causes string breakages and when to get your racquet restrung. 

Before we string the racket, we have to inspect the frame to ensure it is in condition to be strung.

Paint chips or scratches are not a problem, however, a racket that has a significant crack is unable to be strung.
