    I know there are many link as where to buy racket in Bangkok.
    BUt so far the only place in Phuket that I can get hold of YY rackets is the following: http://www.supersports.co.th/location_phuket.asp.

    Anyone know of any other shop in Phuket that sell e.g. Yonex Nanospeed 8K?
    I will be there next week!

    I doubt it. I was in Phuket some 4 years ago, and didn't see too many sports shops (=sport shops selling genuine stuff). I visited Supersports in Bangkok couple weeks ago, and their Yonex badminton selection wasn't too good - I saw just MP series racquets, and MP100 was some 4890 Baht (almost 100 €) without strings. Though maybe you can get a good bargain of some older MP series model from them? I also doubt that they would carry NS series.

    Phuket super sport

    Thanks J_M_V,

    It is very important to know as I need to decide if I need to forgo a company event (boggie!!!) and slip out to shop for racket or not.

    May be after 4 year there will be changes but after Tsunami, I am not so sure...

    Luckily, my colleague bought me some racket in her last trip to Bangkok at National Stadium.:p

    HI - I have a non badminton playing friend based in Bangkok, he was looking out for racquet and string prices for me. Are there now any shops you would recomemend?

    I'd always slip out of a company event for a good day of badminton shopping :D - even if the shop is not that good. I did find shuttlecocks that cost 90 baht (=under 2 euro) in Supersports :eek:. Not surprisingly they didn't fly very well.

    The age old question

    Just came back from Phuket.

    This is to answer those to have the same question and found this thread.

    Is there any shop that sell YY reacket in Phuket?
    The answer is ...

    NO!!!!! There aren't any.:crying:

    Is too much trouble to try to find places that sell racket!
    So just enjoy the beaches and island caves tour there.
    Go Bangkok instead.
