Badminton Equipment List Item#1Rackets

A Badminton Racket

Racket is used to hit the shuttle in a badminton game. The racket can be described in four parts :

a) The first part is the Head – It is where the string is tied.

b) The second part is the Throat – Just like human throat, which connects our head and body, the racket throat connects the racket head to its body. In older racket, the throat is normally a connector which is usually T-shaped, but with modern technology the whole racket is now made in one piece. So the head and the body are made in one mold.

c) The third part is the Shaft – It enable the racket to be longer for longer reach.

d) The last part is the Handle – Handle is the part where you hold the racket. Normally this part is wrapped or covered by a grip. Choosing a racket is very important for a badminton player.



We use the racket to hit the Shuttle. It was formerly called shuttle cork (with an ‘r’). It is also called bird or birdie. The shuttle can be made of goose feathers, duck feathers or plastic. It is made of 16 feathers embedded into a rounded cork base.

Shuttlecock have a few different speeds. The temperature and the altitude affects the shuttlecock’s flight speed. Higher temperature and high altitude will make the shuttle fly faster. The shuttle has to be kept in a damp environment to maintain its quality. The choosing of a shuttle is also very important in badminton.

The attire for badminton is not strict. You can wear whatever you want, to play badminton. Although, to move fast and freely in the court, you must choose comfortable clothes. For you, it can be a round neck T-shirt, collared T-shirt or even a sleeveless T-shirt. It can be paired with shorts, short-skirt or track pants.

Normally the material used is lightweight and quick drying material. You don’t want your shirt to absorb all the sweat and make you uncomfortable. All the extra sweat could also add some weight and slows down a little bit of your movement. So it is best to go for dry-fit clothes.

The shoes also play an important part in playing badminton. Suitable shoes for badminton playing is lightweight and flexible because badminton is a sport that require a player to move in all directions. The shoes must have suitable sole.
