    Try the search for abbies sporting goods, Tad's, and Racquets and Runners in vancouver. Those threads will give you a good lead.

    You're buying badminton related stuff in Canada? Isn't it cheaper back home?

    As others have posted. You have Impluse Sports at Aberdeen Mall in Richmond, the various Sports Chek/Sports Mart, ClearOne Badminton Centre, the Hovel at the Vancouver Racquets Club, Abbies on Main/33rd, Tad's on Granville/72nd.

    Give us a shout when you are here and we can help out more. BTW, if you interested in trying non-Yonex stuff, then Tad's probably have the best selection. You can also get SOTX stuff too (limited selection).

    Taiwanese? There's one in Richmond, No. 3 and Granville that's cheap and GOOD! Closes early though, and the alternative is another close to Tads, around Granville and 68th, next to CIBC bank.

    Hey Janeadai,

    Almost all of them are nowhere near Port Coquitlam. Maybe there's a Sport Mart or Sport Chek around there somewhere, but don't bother if you're looking for high end stuff.

    My suggestion is to look and try rackets in local vancouver stores, remember the model/brand, and come back to US to shop (local or online). In general, US online stores offer better price, never have to metion in CAN, u need to pay extra tax on ur purchase.

    If you're a visitor, you can claim back the 7% PST tax. There're outlets in the Pacific Mall downtown, somewhere in Eaton's. I think you have to bring the goods there to show them plus the receipts.

    Thanks for your advise. Yeah, I want to get the feel first before making the purchase....can you recommend any online store that sell good racquets at a reasonable price?

    1. www.nycbadminton.com (call for price quote)

    2. www.badminton.net

    3. www.badmintonalley.com

    4. www.badmintonsupplies.net

    5. www.racketsupply.com

    6. www.badmintonwarehouse.com

    Most of them carry top brands like Yonex, Gosen, BK, Winex, Victor, etc. You might want to consider compare the price case by case.

    I've seen some in the sporting goods store in Crystal Mall in Burnaby. I don't recall the exact prices but they are expensive -- maybe the higher end shirts.
