    Default Good UK Online Stores?

    Hi there all, I have been searching the net for a couple of days now from some decent badminton equipment stockists in the UK... WHERE ARE THEY ALL!!!

    :-)

    Here are the ones I have found (Not All Good):

    http://www.centralsports.co.uk/
    http://www.newitts.com
    http://www.sportyshop.co.uk/
    http://www.sweatband.com/sweatband/default.asp
    http://www.tennisnuts.org/

    Anyone got any others? I will be forever in your debt... ;-)

    The two best shops in London are ATM and Gefen.

    Gefen is a string specialists, and ATM has good deals on shuttles. Both offer a wide range of rackets at low prices, although Central Sports is probably cheaper for most models (but you have to order through the post, takes time).

    A lot of people also like Wembley Sports, but I'm not sure if they have a web site.

    Do those first two that you mention have a web presence? If so, could someone tell me the URL?

    Thanks.

    (Hating being stuck in Aberystwyth more and more every day...)

    Worth considering certainly, but too much of a risk if I need to return anything.

    Thanks anyway!

    Very good prices... It may certainly be worth considering in future.

    Default UK mail order shops

    This might be of interest to peeps in the UK.

    Someone on the BandmintonUK site recommended a couple of UK shops/mail order places that are quite reasonable (relative to UK price :-)).

    Advancedrackets.com (based in Cardiff)
    http://www.advancedrackets.com/

    Gefen Sports (based in Kensal Rise, London)
    http://www.gefensports.co.uk/

    AMT (based in Southgate, London)
    http://www.ishop.co.uk/ishop/677/shopscr1.html

    Advancedrackets seems to be the cheapest of the lot so far.
    I just bought a Ti-SP (SR) form them for 80 UKP all inclusive
    and got a freebie pack of Yonex Super grap to boot (shame the
    colour they gave me was yucky). Their service was fast as well,
    ordered online at 3pm, received my racket the next day at 12 noon.

    Haven't tried the other two but might go to Gefen for some shuttles soon.

    If anyone has any other good shops in the UK the know of please share.
    (thanks Jim for pointer to AMT, although didn't buy from them in the end)

    Default That's more or less it, except for...

    www.AdvancedRackets.com

    This store was selling the mp77 when it was newly released for £60 incl. delivery + a free Yonex All England bag. They also have a very good returns policy (don't ask!).

    I haven't bought anything from either of these shops and so can't comment much on their price or quality of service:

    www.dtsrackets.com

    (mp99 listed at £98.99 incl. free UK delivery, pricy on other racquets though).

    www.racket-sport.com (rather overpriced for an online shop)

    I wish R&R in Glasgow had an online store; mind you, they'd probably not make much more profit if they had.

    Others I've just noticed in my favourites folder (haven't checked the content of these sites) :

    http://www.racquet-zone.co.uk/

    http://www.davidrosesports.co.uk/

    http://www.sportswholesaler.co.uk

    http://www.newitts.com

    I spend way too much time on the net!
