    Try Rackets&Runners on Oak and King Edward, they carry quite a selection for Yonex. Tad's Sporting Goods on Granvile and 70th has better pricing compare to R&R, in my opinion.

    Hi Martin,
    There are a couple. For example Tad's Sporting Goods down on Granville/72nd and Abby's on Main/33rd.

    As for me, I'm getting into the business to be the agent for Winex equipment for Western Canada. If you are interested in trying out the racquets, give me a shout and let me know where you play (time & place) and I will bring a couple of the racquets out (e.g. Ti-9, Ti-3 & Ti-20 - all strung at 22 lbs).

    Cheers,
    Peter

    The big mall places, like sport check and sport mart. For higher end stuff, try Tads Sporting Goods, or Racquets and Runners.

    Personally i've was pretty happy w/ my purchase experience at Tads, they're not super cheap but they have good selection of higher end stuff, and reasonable prices.

    Tad's has a very good selection of different brands which includes Prince, Babolat, Carlton, Yonex, Winex.

    Other places includes Abbie's on Main/33rd (westside of Main) or you can try the pro shops at the various clubs like VRC, VLTC, etc.

    Rackets and Runners have three locations; the Vancouver one is located on Oak/W. 24th and the one in Richmond is located at Steveston Hwy/No. 3 Rd and the last location is in Coquitlam.

    Default Or if you wait at any community center long enough

    you might run into the travelling badminton store! Jim usually makes his rounds daily to most community centers throughout the lower mainland. he's an older asian fellow, who carries in a rather large bag, and almost on cue, all the regulars will swarm him to take a look at his offerings, or just pick up some loose ends like grips and shuttles. He usually carries a range of racquets, prices are okay, or comparable.

    Hey SL, it's probably lot easier to tell him which center you are at, he'll probably make the trip there.

    In the past, wherever i happen to go, if he is not aware of it, he will make a special trip to go there. anywhere there is a badminton playing, he will make plans to attend. he likes driving around anyways, he is used to it from his daytime job....
