    Default newbie asking

    Hello there. i'm khairul, student at university of glamorgan. I need to re-string my raquet & couldn't find any shop in cardiff. can you help me in this matter? i have tried to PM the person above but the message couldn't be delivered.

    i need to buy a new racquet, but there is not enough sporting equipment for badminton in cardiff. can you recommend me a shop that has many equipment for badminton? i know i can buy stuff online, but you as a badminton player, need to have a feel & test the racquet in hand before buying it. so, buying online is like "hit and miss" sometimes.

    does anyone know if there is any nearby local badminton club at trefforest? i have tried asking the badminton club to join them, but it was already full. so i need to find an alternative place i can play with my friends since the sport centre here is always booked & expensive

    cheers

    YC Sports on Crwys Road are a good bet for stringing - they specialise in Badminton, but I think they mainly just carry Yonex racquets.

    If you want a good non-Yonex brand, Tony Pryce Sports have a good selection. They're in the centre of Cardiff - Queen's Arcade, opposite Argos.

    Thank you!

    by the way... do you know any place nearby the University of Glamorgan where I can play badminton. the sport centre here has the facilities, but always fully booked. So I need to find some place outside the university to play badminton... hope someone here can help me
