At its highest levels badminton is the fastest racket sport in the world. The shuttles can reach speeds over 150 miles an hour and the best players need to be agile, strong, quick, and extremely fit. Of course, it doesn’t have to be quite so fast-paced - badminton is also just a great way to get active and have some fun whatever your fitness levels. And whether you’re planning some casual games in your back garden or thinking about joining your local badminton club we have everything you need to get you started, including badminton rackets, shuttlecocks and nets.
If you’re trying to get fit racket games in general are a great choice. Table tennis will give you a good cardio workout as well as developing muscles in your quads, calves and forearms. And with your own table tennis table at home you can easily pick up your table tennis bats a few times a week to work some games into your routine. Or for something a bit higher octane, try squash which involves running, leaping and diving around the court. Get yourself one of our squash rackets and some squash balls and you’re all set.
And then there’s tennis - the world’s most popular racket sports and with good reason. Regularly playing tennis can lower body fat, improve muscle tone and lower resting heart rate and blood pressure. And it’s also a brilliant way to get outside and spend time with friends and family. Browse our tennis equipment pages for a tennis racket along with balls and tennis accessories.
And whether you’re a seasoned sportsperson or just getting into it, you’ll need to make sure you’re properly dressed for your chosen activity. We have a plenty of stylish and functional men’s sportswear and women’s sportswear clothing to choose from.
