Parkwoods Badminton Club
firstname.lastname@example.org | 15 Wallingford Rd, Toronto |
You don't need to wear the latest badminton fashion or bring an expensive racquet, but there are some basic necessities.
This basic piece of equipment can be purchased for as little as $25. Once you've been playing for a while, you may want to consider a better racquet in the $50-100 range, but take advantage of pre- or post-season discounts for lower prices.
Bring athletic shoes with non-marking soles. Court shoes with gum rubber soles are most effective for indoor badminton.
Bring clothes that will allow you to move freely and stay cool. If you've never played badminton, you'll likely be surprised by how much energy you can burn in a feisty game.
Protective eye-wear, such as those used for racket sports, are recommended.
