    Does anyone know how to recycle broken graphite or alloy racquets in Australia??? Do we just dump them in the standard household recycling bins or is there a specific procedure for recycling badminton racquets?

    :confused:

    I remember my friend broke his racquet and then got drunk afterwards and totally destroyed the racquet on the wall of a big mall. It is was soooo jokes, I would never do that though.

    Burnt one of my racket in the name of science. Othewise they sit in the cupboard for dust collection while I recycle the grommets for other rackets that are still alive.

    here is one idea. find a racket cover, or glue a cardboard or whatever on the racket head, and use it for swing practice...
