any graphite shaft racquet will do,
Yonex, Carlton are good brands, as far the weight most of the graphite or Tatinium are very light, the best thing to do is to go the sport shop, try them yourself, until you can find the one you feel most comfortable with..

Price range in the USA ( $ 60 - $100)..will get you very nice racquet.. Good luck..

Dubai racquet are quite expensive compare to msia, so any msian player planning coming over to work & play badminton here in dubai should bring along their gear. I just join JJ's group at Acedemy Etisalat near Al-quasis & is quite fun playing with them.

hi there,

thanks for your quick response.....

i cant believe how expensive it is to join that club, do you know what the standard is like within the club.....?

thanks for your invite to play on the beach, being in england its weird to think that people actually play badminton outside......

thanks again,

Hey Stu whereabouts did you play in the uk? I used to play warwickshire juniors and uni badminton... it's quite hard to find courts around here but theres a philipino group that plays on fridays. There are a few decent players there. They book out a sports hall and has 7 courts drop us a line if you fancy a hit, 0508792901.

Hi Ray, thanks for your message. I'm not going to be out in Dubai till the end of september, as my job doesn't start till then, but once i'm settles i will give you a shout. I play in the 1st team for buckinghamshire. It's a shame, i expected Dubai to be bigger on badminton as a lot of people from the far east are settled there, but never mind.

Thanks again,

Stuart
