Who is an intermediate player in badminton?

  • Players who regularly take part in local competitions and have had a high degree of success.
  • Inter-con players who have won regularly belong to this category.
  • These players possess very good fundamentals but lack the experience and certain aspects of their game to put them on par with the Advanced players Eg. speed, power, stamina, killer instinct, game play.

So for an intermediate players racket which have max tension above 22lbs and not above 28lbs is perfect for a intermediate player,

above this tension it can be difficult for an intermediate player to control the shots and tension below 22lbs is below standard for an intermediate player and can disturb the quality of players shots.

Not too light which can cause injuries to player,

professional players uses racket which have less weight and more flexibility and they have experience to control these racket but for an intermediate player controlling the power in making shots can be a difficult task.

How to choose best badminton racket based on your gaming style

Attacking style

Defensive style

If you have more like a safe or defensive style player  then choosing a racket with heavy head can cause you some problem so it is always good for a defensive player to go a balanced or light head racquets with will not unnecessary pressure on your wrist. These light headed racquets are little bit hard to control especially if you are an intermediate player.

Graphite :- It is a pure form of carbon with its atom arranged in big sheets of hexagonal rings. A polymer chain of carbon atoms that are connected to one another, this very polymer undergoes a process to become carbon fiber which is super strong and has the property of elasticity.

  • Graphite rackets have changed the style of play over the generation. The graphite element is super stable and does not react with any other element in the racket.
  • Now the carbon composites allow the distribution of weight in the racket.
  • The stability of the element allows the manufacturers to adjust the flex patterns of the rackets. This means that the relative stiffness of the racket at various points.
  • Talking about stringing a carbon composite racket, since they are good in strength it allows the user to sting the racket at higher tension with less risk of causing a damage to the frame.
  • The switch to graphite rackets from wooden rackets happened about 30 years ago.

These are some tips to make your racket last longer

If you are playing with a High Tension strings then as soon as you you are streams get broken cut it with scissor to avoid breakage of your racket frame, so always keep scissors in your kit bag.

Also don’t give you racket to a beginner because his poor technique might cause harm to your racket, do you know that playing with feather shuttles will break your string more quickly than playing with a nylon shuttle it is because feather shuttle are more heavy, so if you are playing a recreational game with your friends who are not taking any coaching I would suggest you to play with a nylon shuttle.
