An incredibly professional and all-encompassing site…

By Katie Garner

If you are wondering where on earth to find the newest and most efficient badminton gear, then you’re search is now over, as www.centralsports.co.uk is an extremely comprehensive and useful site for all things badminton and racket sport related. As Badminton England’s official UK online retailer, the site has a distinct professional air, especially as many big brands such as Victor, have chosen it to represent their goods as their only online retailer.

Covering badminton, squash and tennis equipment, there really is a great selection as they sell rackets, racket grips, shoes, clothes, shuttles, bags, badminton DVD’s and more, all at a high calibre. They also have an exclusive Yonex shop that features products from the likes of FZ Forza, Yehlex, Monsoon Direct, Ashaway, Carlton, Li-Ning, Victor and Wilson. Badminton England members can even get a 10-20% discount on all the newest gadgets and gizmos. The trusted and official website also sells rackets that are said to be used by the Korean national team.

Het was the one who recommended this site to me, so if anyone else has browsed or bought anything, why not let us know in the comments box below? What have you bought and how good were the items you purchased? Don’t forget to let me know of any other products or websites that we can review – email me at wychelmbc@gmail.com, or on my personal email or Facebook if you know it.

My favourite picks:

I’ve always fancied getting myself one of those swish looking racket bags and this one ticks all the boxes for me! My singular racket will be swimming in all the space available, as it can carry six rackets and has three handy separate compartments, in a very trendy yet feminine black and pink design. If anyone fancies treating their hard-working Captain then it even has a special web offer of just over £20!

This limited edition, Yonex Voltric racket is a bit of a lust have in the badminton world, especially as this racket is also used by world number one Lee Chong Wei. A tad out of my price range at £190, but check out our full product review for more details!

These Victor Championship shuttles are slightly different from our yellow plastic jobs! As the official shuttles for IBF tournaments, they are speedy and elegant. Wonder if our budget would stretch this far…
