New here as well as to badminton
Hi folks I'm new to the wonderful sport of badminton as well as to the forums.
I live in a very small town in NE Washington called Metaline Falls. I play badminton twice a week at our local high school gym. We have around 12 players on a daily basis. Im hunting for my first racquet so if you have any suggestions let me know.

What voices are you hearing? Since you are a writer, perhaps you have a muse or two who give you ideas.
What sort of stuff do you write? Perhaps an action-love-drama based around a badminton club? That would be sure to make it to Oprah's list.

Then I realized the username of the thread starter is "ohthevoices"
About the first racquet.
Just buy one from academy or something.
After a couple of months, when you kinda know your style, strengths and weaknesses, and if you are sticking with badminton, then we can recommend a racquet to you.
Have fun playing badminton.
It's the best.

Oh I am sticking with Badminton as I am already addicted. As for purchasing one from acadamy, what is that? Im not familiar with the term.
I was thinking of just purchasing a wilson match point racquet. ive used one recently. It was nothing special, and kind of light but it was strung tight and I liked that about it.

Academy is short for Academy Sports and Outdoors.
It's a sports store (obviously), but I just looked it up and it's only located in southern and southeastern US. I didn't know that.
Yeah you can go for a wilson match point racquet.
Nothing wrong with that.

As for the racket to choose, you can hover on over to the Market Places or Bou & Sell sub-forums. Also, you can look for advices in the Equipments sub-forum.
Anyway, keep coming back & hope you'll stick around baddy & enjoy this forum!
