In addition to being a fun backyard and beach pastime, badminton is one of the most popular sports in the world, with a great number of high-level players competing in international championships, including the Olympics. With that in mind, we have taken the time to identify the best racquets for novices and experienced players looking to up their game.

Editor's Notes

November 26, 2018:

Badminton racquets must be durable enough to stand up to the constant impact of the shuttlecock, while also remaining lightweight enough for easy maneuverability. We did our best to include a variety of low- and end-models from reputable brands that have been making sports equipment for years.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
