    Hey guys, been trying to do a bit of research for our club to find out the best price for some new shuttles. Would be great to know how much people are paying for yonex As30s. Currently I can get them for £19.80 a tube (including discount if ordering over 25doz).

    I would be surprised if you can better that by more than a few pennies in the UK.

    The usual Badminton specialists like Central Sports, Direct Badminton, Stringers World etc. are all around the £20 mark give or take a few pence.

    I think instead of ordering it in larger quantities from a shop, there is the option to make a contract with a shop. The contract normally look like that way:

    You state the volume of shuttles you need for a year and the bundles you wanna get them every few months.
    The shop guarentee that the price will stay the same for the whole year.
    The shop also give you a discount on the price per tube. It is necessary to get offers from various shops you are interested to cooperate. There can be difference in price. Depends on the shop, volume and the brand. Some shops have better connections to Yonex, others have better connections to other brands. Normally the discount on Yonex shuttles is lower compared to Babolat or Victor according to my area and shops.

    A form of shuttle cooperative could be set up if somebody wants to be VERY generous. There is something similar around Bristol with Yehlex shuttles for local clubs. I don't know specifics of the deal but clubs buy the tubes from "whoever set it up" at much better prices. It means you can buy fewer tubes now and then at much lower cost but still benefit from the economies of scale pricing. As I said, it requires a generous investment up front from a county association or league.

    I think I read something about Badminton England having a deal with Babolat and can sell shuttles at a better cost than retail. Might explain why Babolat shuttles are popular for some county matches and tournaments too.
