A set of badminton rackets is an easy, inexpensive and fun way to get the whole family playing sports. They’re lightweight, so ideal for children and adults alike and the basic rules of badminton are simple to learn too. Whether you’re in the garden, at the park, or on the beach all you need is a bit of space and some shuttlecocks and you’re off. Throw in a badminton net too if you want to make things a bit more serious.
Table tennis is another fun way to get kids into racket sports. You can invest in your own table tennis table, or many parks and public spaces now have tables available for everyone to use. You’ll just need to take along your own table tennis bats and balls. And from there they can move on to the real thing - again many parks have free or low-cost courts open to the public, so grab a tennis racket and some tennis balls and start practising those aces.
While you’re stocking up on tennis equipment it’s important to make sure you and your family have the right footwear too. Choose from our selection of women’s trainers or men’s trainers and you’ll soon be zooming around the court.
