Choosing a badminton racket is a very important and highly individual decision. To buy a badminton racket you need to be well informed about the features, strengths and weaknesses. Keep in mind that the most expensive rackets are not necessarily the best badminton rackets on the market. Nonetheless the flagships of the popular brands like Yonex, Victor or Li Ning will definitely help you on court. One of the most popular sports in India, besides cricket and now football, has got to be badminton. Ask anyone in India, and more likely than not, they know how to play badminton! After all, badminton is the second most played sport in India, closely the following cricket. The sport is, in fact, so widespread in India that our shuttlers easily hold top spots in all badminton associations and championships. One of the reasons for badminton’s popularity is the ease and simplicity of the sport. Badminton doesn’t necessarily require a table, net, or other fancy equipment, unlike its cousin sports. All you need is some open space, a companion, a shuttle, and of course, a racket. How good your performance will be is highly dependent on three things, the shuttle, wind, and your racket. Whether your racket offers a good grip, handling, and whether it offers a good bunce makes a huge impact on the gameplay.
