Thinking of picking up a racquet for my parents and myself -- 1. How often do you play, how serious are you? -> 2-3hrs/week (weekends), not serious, recreational. 2. What style of player are you? (Aggressive smasher, net player ...) -> beginner style =) 3. Do you care much about durability or is it all about performance? -> definitely durability. 4. How much money do you want to spend? -> $30/racquet. I'm a fairly good tennis player myself, but trying badminton now since my parents loved it last weekend when we tried it out. I just want something durable and good overall racquet for beginners. Perferrably, something that comes with a cover. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
