MUST HAVE BADMINTON GEARS AND EQUIPMENT | If you’ve been playing badminton for a while now, you’re probably familiar with all the rules and the etiquette of the game. But are you equipped with everything a serious badminton player needs?

Having the right gear can go long way to improving your experience of the sport. And like any other sport out there, badminton has its own list of equipment that real badminton enthusiasts adhere to.

So if you’re wondering what to pack before heading out for a game, here is a list of essential gear you need to have.

1) Extra Strings

Having an extra racket would be ideal. However, it can be expensive, and carrying an extra set of strings is a lot more economical. In the event that your strings happen to break during a game, it’s important to get them removed and restring your racket.

A broken string can redistribute the tension across the racket frame, causing it to bend out of shape. So avoid this by getting yourself an extra set of strings.

2) Extra Grip

The racket grip can often come loose during a match. Especially when you’ve got a simple towel grip covering the original one. This is why, you should always have an extra grip handy in case you need to replace the one currently on your racket.

3) Multiple Shuttlecocks

Feather shuttlecocks are perfect for playing serious badminton, but they tend to morph out of shape very easily. Not only does this reduce the aerodynamics of the shuttle; it also hinders the game as a whole.

By carrying 3-4 extra shuttlecocks, you can quickly replace the spoilt shuttlecock and continue playing.

4) Change Of Clothes

You must always keep a change of clothes handy, especially when you’ve enrolled in a tournament. Clothes absorb your sweat and can make you feel hot and sticky. By changing into more comfortable, dry clothing, you can refresh your mind and body before returning to the game.

If you use gear like wristbands or headbands, be sure to keep a replacement for these as well.

5) Towel

A towel can really help you feel rejuvenated during a break in the game. Wiping the sweat off your face and hands will give you time to think about the match and what you need to do. And clearing away the sweat will make you feel rested and refreshed. This can be the essential energy boost that you need to return to the game full of vigour.

6) Water Bottle

This probably goes without saying, but it’s absolutely essential to carry a bottle of water with you to every game. Sipping on water during a break will allow you to replenish your body of all the fluids it lost during the game.

And drinking water at regular intervals during a workout helps to prevent lactic acid buildup that leads to cramps.

You Don’t Need A Lot Of Money!

The best part about all this gear is that you don’t need a lot of money to purchase them. Simple take care of your equipment and it will last for years.

Happy badminton!
