    1.The ones that still can be used, I gave them away. Recently,I gave two to two kids about 10 yrs old. One is nano 100, the other is mp 66.
    2.The obsolete ones my mother use them as colanders.
    3. I leave some of them laying around the house cause sometime my wife will pick one up trying to hit me but she miss most of the time.

    I've always given my spare or old rackets to keen beginners or intermediate players because they're still a lot better than what they have!

    We have some rackets at our club for beginners/kids that don't have rackets of their own but want to try badminton. That's where I gave my last 2 rackets I didn't need anymore.

    LOL is awesome!

    completely agreed

    it's very generous of you guys to give your older rackets away whether it be to beginners or to kids. it is certainly a great way to promote badminton in a positive way.

    E, you can do the same by giving away your collections to poor guy like me. I promise they won't appear on Buys and Sells right away :)
