Do you want your children to discover the joy of badminton? Or perhaps you just want to enjoy a sport that the whole family can easily play. In both cases, it makes sense to invest in some quality equipment. But where do you start? One way of doing this is by investing in complete badminton sets.

What are things included in a badminton set?

A badminton set consists of a net, posts, birdies and the shuttlecock. The lines on the ground mark the court boundaries.

The net should be placed at the height of 2.74m in the centre of the court. The posts should be placed on either side at a distance of 1.524m from the net post and at the height of 2.13m from the ground.

Birdies are used for play and not for scoring points. The birdie is made of cork and rubber and has a diameter of 15cm.

So when you decide to choose a badminton set, there are a few things to consider:


One of the most important things to keep in mind when purchasing a badminton set is the style of the racquet. There are four different styles of racquets, each of which serves a different purpose. For example, an offensive player will use a fast racquet with a high head so that they can quickly attack the shuttle. A defensive player will use a slower racquet with a lower head to block shots and keep the shuttle off their side of the court. A doubles player will need two racquets that are designed for speed and power, and control.

Badminton Racket:

The first step is to identify the frequency of your badminton playing. Some people, they may play on a weekly basis with their clubmates and friends. For others, who are more serious about their game, they may go to badminton classes three times a week and play every day.

The next step is to identify the skill level of the player. If you’re not sure what skill level you are in, there is a simple test that will let you know when you’re in need of a stronger racket. The player should stand at the backline and toss the shuttlecock

Choosing your badminton racket according to your playing frequency can be a difficult task. To make this process easier, we have created a table below that will help you choose the perfect racket for you.

If you play once a week or less, you should choose:

–   A Beginner’s racket

–   An intermediate racket

–  A professional racket If you play more than once a week, you should choose:

–  A beginner’s racket

–  An intermediate racket

– A professional racket

– An advanced professional racket

Types of Racket Composition:

The three types of racket composition are the wood racket, the metal racket, and the graphite racket. The wood racket is a little bit heavier than the other two, as it is more durable. The metal racket is made of aluminium and steel and is generally used by tournament players. And finally, the graphite racket is made of graphite and Kevlar, making it the lightest of all three types. The wood racket has an average lifespan of six months, while the metal and graphite rackets have an average lifespan of one year.

Racket Balance Point:

The main consideration for choosing badminton sets is the balance point. The balance point is where the racket shaft meets the head of the racket. The farther from the head of the racket, the higher the balance point. This means the player will have more control over the racket, with a lower risk of it swinging out of their hand and hitting them in the face.

A low balance point (closer to the head) is better for beginners because they are less likely to hit themselves when they swing. Intermediate players should use a medium balance point, and advanced players usually opt for a high balance point.
