Speed Badminton is played with special Speedminton® Speed Racquets. With a weight of around 174 grams and their special shape, they are designed specifically for the requirements of Speed Badminton. The length of 58cm guarantees the best possible ball control, accuracy, and agility. The sweet spot is much closer to the hand compared to other racquet sports, and is made for easy handling and quick skill development. A sturdy, yet light frame and high string tension create an ideal basis for one of the fastest racquet sports in the world. As you can see, a Speedminton® Speed Racquet doesn’t have a lot in common with a badminton racquet.
Once players graduate from the Starter S60 and Fun S80 Speed Racquets, they move up to Speedminton® basic frames made for vigorous freestyle games and first match experience (S200 Speed Racquet) and also for more ambitious play (S400 Speed Racquet). Both come in sets.
Speedminton® tournament frames are made for serious speed badminton competition, and are sold individually. The graphite material makes the racquets lighter while the strings offer the best possible control. Tournament frames are the best choice for regular players.
“This is going to sound nuts but our 90 pound dog has taken a shine to Speedminton, in the sense that he runs the middle while we play, and attacks the speeders – it’s hilarious… he gets a great workout and it makes the game more challenging for us..”—
