    Hi all,

    when you are ready to head out to the gym, how much gear do you bring? rackets, shuttles, shoes, what else? and how big is your bag?

    I bring a simple Yonex bag that carries 2 rackets that has a small pocket enough to fit my phone, wallet and watch. Oh yeah, i always bring sissors and glue along as well. Just in case the black tape on the grip tape doesn't stick..... hehehe

    my bag is the yonex cloth one.
    its quite large and can fit lots of stuff mainly because its a sack and not a "shaped" bag.
    I have a can of birdies in it, 2 or 3 racquets, wrist bands, and a time schedule of my club in it.

    Apart from the obvious stuff (4-5 badminton racquets, shoes, feather shuttles etc) I keep a squash racquet and a skipping rope (for warm-ups), a Leatherman multi-purpose pocket knife (for immediately cutting remaining strings if a string breaks, to avoid any longer period of frame deformation), and an elastic band aid (I sprained my ankle badly once and if I had had that band aid then my recovery time would have been much shorter).

    I have a skipping rope but it doesn't reside in my bag.

    The multipurpose knife plus scissors is on my shopping list for the string cutting and grip trimming.

    Is there anything else I missed....yes.... sometimes I carry the powder for an electrolyte drink so I don;t have to carry loads of water around with me. Just mix it up when next to the court.
