Badminton Racket Shops in Taipei, Taiwan
I would be going to Taipei for a holiday soon and would like to check out the racket shops in Taipei or Taipei county.
On previous occasions, I have only been to the shops at Kung Kuan (near Taiwan University) and Shilin. Did try to search for threads on "taipei" and "taiwan" and only managed to find the 2 shops mentioned above. It seems to me that there was quite a number of members who made enquires past 2 years but did not get any answers at all.
Had sent PMs to some very knowledgeable members but have not heard from them.
Would there be any kind souls out there who are willing to share information on racket shops in Taipei or Taipei county?

I used the yonex racket prices on www.mattshop.com.tw as a guide and found that the prices of the Armortec 700 and 500 TW versions are very competitive as compared to prices in Singapore (SP versions). Its almost a difference of S$100 (or NTD1950)
I managed to take a quick look at the MMOA and Flypower rackets which were on display during the Taipei Open last year. My Taiwanese colleagues also play with MMOA rackets and highly recommended them. Intend to try out my collegues' rackets
Have played with the Fleet mid range rackets (bought from Malaysia) which are value for money. Would certainly like to try out those high end models found on the above website.
I am looking forward to visit the racket shops, night markets and delicious local food (but not the stinking beancurd ) in Taipei.

Hi, I am currently in Taipei right now in the Jiantan/Chientan district. Does anyone know of any legitimate Yonex stores around this area that I can walk/met/taxi to for Yonex rackets? Thanks!

Thanks, I'll check it out on my free day. Do you know if the prices of the products match those from the website you linked?

The shops in Taiwan usually give a 30% discount off the retail prices.

You can ask the locals there. I'm glad i can speak chinese as i actually ask the locals there how to go to the shop by showing them my printed google maps of that area. While waiting for my racket to be strung, i actually went to have my japanese style steamboat located just a few shops from the yonex shop. The waitress serving there is quite pretty though Just for your info..Not sure whether she still works there. Btw, i walk to this yonex shop by foot since i have to ask for direction here and there from the locals..

I know this reply may come too late, but hope it helps on your future visits to Taipei, Taiwan
There's a great place in Taipei City to play badminton and it is quite convenient to get to.
You can play one off or join badminton social teams to play
Here's the Address for the badminton shop and the facility:
7Floor, No. 1 HsinYi Road, Section 1, Taipei City, Taiwan
ZhongZheng Sports Center
No. 1 HsinYi Road, Section 1, Taipei City, Taiwan
It is about 5minute walking distance from 2 popular MRT stations. The facility is a city owned sport center with 5 badminton courts, and a lot of other indoor sports facilities such as archery, basketball, golf, table tennis, swimming pool, etc. They charge quite reasonably for court usage, it's air conditioned. Oh, another plus, is that there's a badminton shop right on the floor where the courts are at. They sell all badminton related products and accessories. Racket prices are very reasonable as well. They sell Yonex, Victor, Flypower, MMOA, Fleet, etc. It's worth the visit Have fun when in Taipei!

As for Taiwan sports centers in Taipei, I actually "volunteered" at some of the centers, like the one at Xinyi. Like you say, they do have a wide assortment of sports activities available. Their court usage fees, in my opinion, is quite expensive. Almost $9-10 USD per hour. However, I suppose that this is the standard rate that Taiwanese sport centers charge for badminton, since it is exactly the same at other places.
