What racket do I need for badminton?

Firstly, to get a racket, it really comes down to your style of play. If you want to play as a heavy smasher, reliant on powerful blows on your opponent. You will require a stiff, head-heavy racket. Preferably, a racket with the stiffness of 3U and with strings of high tension. A suggestion would be BG 66 Ultimax at 27 lbs. For a heavy smashing racket, Z Force I and Z Force II would be a diligent choice. For a skill player, one of quick and speedier powerful shots. You will need a a lighter racket, a softer flex and moderate balance. It should be a racket of 4U or above. The stringing could be still BG 66 Ultimate at 27 lbs. A suggestion for that racket would be the Yonex Z Speed or Z Slash. Note: All of these rackets will have prices of at least $165 USD

What are the best tennis rackets for serve and volley players?

Rackets differ slightly for everything you want to do. Rackets really don't make the biggest difference, that's just what companies will tell you to purchase their product. Don't get me wrong, there is a difference, just not a huge one that's worth spending $70 more dollars for. That being said, i would personally go with a light, small head racket for volley and net play. A heavy racket will aid with power, but you don't need power when volleying, you need placement. With a small head(98' is a perfect one) racket youll be able to easily and quickly move your racket around to return a volley as best as possible. Also, a light head racket will allow you to easily adjust when serving, and really aid in placing your serves. however with a heave racket, your serves will be powerful and often drop after the bounce, making them hard to return. You would be off very well with a Head Radical racket. The orange ones. They're very light and headsize 98' which is nice and small for you.

Who are junior tennis racquets for?

The junior rackets are for little kids, around 10 years and younger. It's so that the kids don't hurt themselves handling heavy rackets. If a racket is too heavy for its user, it can also mess up or bring hitches into the player's strokes. Also, using those little rackets and cheap strings allow the kids to focus on getting the sweet spot every time. so when they go to the adult rackets, their ball will be penetrating and good.

Can you use a racquetball racket to play tennis?

Answer 1You can but you shouldn't. A tennis racquet is much larger and designed for a larger ball than a racquetball racquet. Officially speaking, it is against the rules to play with anything other than a racquetball racquet. Answer 2Most games have dimensions and rule boundaries placed on official equipment allowable. I believe there are constraints on the racquets that should be used in racquetball, including the shape of the end of the face. There are also practical disadvantages for using tennis racquets in racquetball - they are far too heavy and cumbersome. The ball needs to be struck with a kind of throwing action and one that is very fast.This action is not as efficient or as possible with tennis equipment as it is using the proper impliments.
