Not played for about 20 years, I am 37 years old had a few games on holiday and really enjoyed it. I have decided to get back into it and try and play weekly. I would like advice on which racquet to buy? Ideally no more than £50. Also are there any particular shuttlecocks I should look at buying?
I have had a look in sports direct and on line for a racquet but the choice is massive. I like the look of Yonex and was told that these are decent.

All of the rackets on Direct Sports website are decent. What I suggest is that you look what offers they have or clearance lines. As you have to begin somewhere – virtually any racket on this website will do the job for you.


Good luck and please let us know what you chose.
