    Hey guys,

    I have a question,
    How do you become an authorized dealer for those big brands like Yonex, Victor, li-ning, etc. :confused:
    Say I want to open a shop that sells badminton stuff,
    What are the requirements and where do I look for?:confused:
    call Yonex directly?:confused:
    Any advice would be appreciated!;)

    Thanks guys!

    look for the local sales rep and or distributor and talk to them.

    Yonex will most likely require you to have a physical store, others might be less strict.

    Thanks Kwun,
    Ya I guess I will call yonex canada then, there is only one office in canada, I guess that would be it?
    I tried to look for a regional rep in my area, but there is non that I can find.
    Thanks for your reply.

    Hi Stevenni,

    You'll need physical location to be an authorized dealer for Yonex, Victor, Black Knight, Li Ning and Adidas.

    Aside from Li Ning, the rest are headquartered in the west although BK may have an eastern warehouse.

    PM if you need any help
