As a starting badminton player, it is advisable to choose a steel / aluminum badminton racket. These rackets are perfect for getting acquainted with the badminton sport. The big advantage of these rackets is that they are very robust and not too heavy (approx. 100 grams). The disadvantage of these rackets is that they do not absorb shocks, which increases the chance of injuries with frequent and intensive use. Price range from € 15.
So if you plan to play regularly, invest a little more in your racket and avoid problems with your arm / shoulder. An additional advantage is that you can use your racket for longer and your development is not impeded.
