I broke a racket playing a normal drop shot. Admittedly the racket had been clashed and the graphite was damaged. It was quite amusing for my opponents and partner though to see the racket give up after such a gentle shot. Especially the attempt at a return shot with a semi-collapsed frame which went flying off into the other court even though I thought I'd hit the shot cleanly (and I though in a straight line).

I guy in my club was being upset-ed by a player supposedly weaker...
he suddenly shooted the plastic box in which you put the bags, and destroyed the box haha

I watched my friend play doubles with a beginner and when we went for the smash, his partner didn't go far forward enough or duck, and he broke his racket on his head. I almost dies laughing

Hit it onto your partner head
My partner in accidently smashed me in the head with his racket and his his racket broke to pieces. The whole hall starting to run around to get some ice pack while im being treated like a fallen soldier. The side of my head just above the left ear was swallen big, but luckily no bloody thing happening.
What happend was, i was at the net and hit a drive down the middle and my opponent double hit the shuttle but managed to return the bird. At that point, the ref called the point and i let myself stand straight. But my apparently my partner missed the whole story and thought that the bird is still in play, so at half court he smashed as hard as he can and hit both the bird and me. Now me and my partner joked around that YY racket is not as strong as my head
BWT we still managed to get into SF with my dizzy head going around

Do 3 x jump smash
It happend last week; again with the same partner i was on the net and managed to get a nice net shot/drop, and hence my opponent lifted the bird high to the back where my partner was ready to smash. Ane jump high and smash (1st time) and the bird was return high again so my partner smash again (2nd time) and this time the bird was returned to the net, so i net back and the bird was flying high again. For the 3rd times in a row he smashed again, then there was a sound like a string has broken. My partner said "oh my string is sbapped" as soon as he said that the bird came back driving to the middle, so he had no option but to hit back. Once the play was over for the point, he looked at the racket and realised it was not his string that was broken but actually there is a long crack on the shaft just above the cone. The racket is RIP

'you break mine, i break yours'
this is a true story.
2 guys came out of the court to continue their argument and
both of them holding their racket with the frame missing.
from their argument one could find out during their game earlier
the first one trying hard to retrieve a drop shot but before he could
his partner also dashed to the front and stepped on his racket while hitting the bird.
that caused the first one to be off balance and flung himself forward
and he also stepped on a racket, his partner's!
seeing those two players sizes, there is no reason one step would not break any racket!
and of course the off balance speed they could have! lol
