I'm already a member of BC for some weeks, but I hadn't seen this forum yet.
Here's my introduction:
I'm Stijn, almost 17 years old, and I started playing badminton in 1998. This year I bought my first new racket (a MP25). Thanks to BC, I know a lot more about rackets now, and I found out that I should get a stiffer one. However, next year I'm starting in the Belgian competition (D-class) and I'm looking forward to it! At the moment, we haven't got a trainer but soon we'll have 2 (2 members are following a trainer's course). If anyone has some questions, just let me know .

Welcome to BadmintonForum, Stijn! Are you a singles-player?

Welcome, Neighbour! ;-)
Its the best if you got to a sports-shop and let you give 2 or 3 different rackets for testing. So you can see at the training which one you like most at playing!

On most tournaments, there's a racquet-shop, they have a lot of racquets, and you can try them out.

Oh, I´ve never been to Aachen, but there´s a small sports-shop here in Hamburg in my neighbourhood and all the people from my sportsclub go there asking for some testrackets. They get 2 or 3 for a week and then they give them back.
Can´t you do this in Netherlands?

From the far East, a 'hot' (the temperature here is unbearably hot) welcome to you, Stijn.
Only recently, we've been exposed to the badminton scene in Belgium and the level of interest there, which is pretty encouraging.
Here in tiny Singapore (hope you can find us on th world map), we certainly have many more badminton equipment shops than what you have at home. In addition, we can travel to southern Malaysia, Johor Baru (JB for short) to buy cheaper clones of some Yonex brands. Must say they are pretty good for the price we have to pay.
Hope you will continue to enjoy yourself here with all our BC friends.
