    Default Badminton places in Melbourne?

    Hello. Can anyone tell me where one might find a badminton shop in or near to Melbourne city, and if they were to have an online presence, their internet address as well?
    I had a look through Google and one of the 'Australian' search engines, but it was a nogo.

    Thanks!

    And 5 seconds later I find a place in Sydney named Top Serve Tennis who still list the MP99, anyone dealt with them?

    Hi,
    There's a really good racket shop in Blackburn South on Middleborough road:
    http://www.xinsports.com.au/index.ph...847336250-7061
    This shop has the cheapest NanoSpeed and Armortec rackets I've seen in Aus (even online). The shop also has a very good range of Apacs rackets (which i recommend you getting). I've been there before and the rackets are all genuine. You can buy rackets online from here as well. re-string is $18 for bg-65

    Another shop is at:
    http://www.jtultra.com.au/contacts.aspx
    This one has extremely cheap muscle power rackets

    Whatever you do, i suggest not going to tension 24 because they are way too overpriced. They could charge up to $80 more than other places and use the excuse of a restring. $48 for BG-65 re-string clothes are just painfully expensive... don't get me started.

    You can keep an eye out for sales at sportsmart at moorabbin as they sometimes clear badminton rackets really cheaply.

    I like the idea of Xin's shop really I am still gonna go pop in when I get to Melbourne, though I only have one day before I go to the rural area, and it's a fair way out.

    Kyabram. I was born there in 1980. Basically it's a big Christmas drinkup with my extended family, it's good fun And the food is fantastic, all homemade roast chicken, lamb, turkey etc, homemade Ice Cream. Pudding! Apricots off of a tree..... *drool*

    We'll probably go to Shep once or twice too. I dunno if Ky is big enough to support a badminton club, but people were gonna find out for me.
