I just go there coz its close to home and office. I don't take any coaching there. Even if I want to take coaching, it's not possible as all coaching slots are already full. I have even heard that there is a 2 year waiting period for kids. It seems after the success of Saina and others, all parents here want to make their kids badminton players. There is a huge rush!

Having youngsters taking the sport seriously is good for Indian badminton!

My eyes lit up, when I read you go to Gopichand Academy to practice. Lucky guy!

You can just watch them play/practice and am sure you will learn, absorb and adapt so much more.

I too am playing it as a hobby and your choice of racquet should come from experts aboard this forum.

Happy shopping !! If you have anyone returning from US you can definitely get it lot more cheaper

It fits so snug that you should wear it to experience it.

Cheers

Am getting - Asic's Domain 2 Blue for 5000 while the same is available for 5999/- on some websites.

Do you reckon this pair is good for my fragile ankles and knees? Bear in mind I will be playing on concrete (paver blocks) surface!

Compare it with Yonex SC5 which is also 5K and see which of the two you are more comfortable in.

ASIC domain 2 blue is a great shoe and if compared to scs5 , I would suggest you to go for it. It's better fit n lighter than sc5. Sc5 is heavier because of extra cushion. But tht blue ASIC is pathetic looking , so no show points against yonex sc5.

Almost all major sports stores ll string racket.
Cost depends on type of string.
Cheapest is yonex bg65. For tension, check your racket, it ll be printed somewhere on racket.
You ll get it in 2-6 hrs and from as cheap as 350 bucks.

Just as KB mentioned,do it some place close to your house so that you can pick it up.All the places do a decent job.I got it strung at Champion and Total and found both to be good enough.I usually get it strung at the upper limit ,but the downside is if you are playing doubles,and if you run a risk of a clash(playing with not so good players or players who forget that they are playing doubles and not singles),then if the racquet is at a high tension the frame may just crack!A safe tension for almost all yonex racquets is around 18-20,the shops to be on the safer side always string it at 18-20 so that the customer does not go back to them saying "string snapped so fast-your quality is not good!!".I string my racquets at around 24 at the moment.

my suggestion is that as long as one thinks they are at an beginner/intermediate level of play,its best to string it at 20-22lbs.Higher the tension,more the skill and control needed to control the bird as higher tension would result in more power,so if a player is somebody who already has a powerful arm/shoulder etc,then the higher tensions would add to the zing hence the need to have better skill to control the play.Say for instance APACS Virtuoso 30/50 has a permissible tension level of 36!!!

I never thought I would bump into badminton thread on TBHP. Great.

One advice. How is the Flypower Attack Power 1 racquet? I have bought one recently but am unable to find anything about it through Google. Thanks in advance.

Looking for a badminton shoes within 2.5 k range.
Anyone who uses Yonex World Champ Sc 4 Badminton Shoes (Rs. 2500) ? I would like to know the durability and grip of the same. If that's not a good one I'm planning to blindly go for 'Nivia Appeal Court Shoes' (Rs. 1300) for the time being.
