Badminton is a Fun Backyard Game for the Whole Family!

Playing badminton is great exercise and lots of fun for any age. There is no need to be a professional player, you just need to be willing to get out and play. Even little kids can have fun with this game, teens think it's cool, and adults can hold their own! It can be played with a mix of all ages. Perfect for family or group outings. It is my favorite outdoor game!

How Good does a Badminton Set Need to Be?

Just like everything else, better quality will last longer, thus saving you money. The rackets sometimes receive rather rough treatment during an exciting game, and they will break easily if not well made. You will not regret purchasing good quality rackets and shuttlecocks. It is a good investment in future years of outdoor fun.

Fun for a Summer Day!

My 2 Favorite Badminton Sets

Are you looking for a new badminton set? On this page I've included (in my opinion) two of the best badminton sets for fun outdoor playing at home, at a picnic, or on the beach.

1. The Park & Sun Badminton Pro Set

2. Speedminton Fun Set - It will Glow-in-the-Dark for playing at night.

Both of these sets are made well enough for professionals, but not too expensive for the family player.

1. Park & Sun Badminton Professional Set

This set in one of the best selling on Amazon and has received 4 stars. I highly recommend it!

This is a professional grade set, and a great value because it will last longer than the lower quality sets.

The rackets have steel shafts, Gosen strings, and padded grips. The shuttlecocks are made of A-grade nylon and have sport cork tips. If you want quality, this is the set for you.

Park & Sun Sports Portable Indoor/Outdoor Badminton Net System with Carrying Bag and Accessories: Professional Series

Fun on the beach at night!

2. Speedminton Set

Have you ever heard of "Speedminton"? This game combines the best of tennis, badminton, and racquetball. You can play it indoors or outdoors since there is no need for a net, in the daytime or at night because it includes lights to insert in speeders. Speedmintion is a new and fun way to have fun in the backyard or at the beach this summer.

Badminton is a Fun Way to Get Exercise

I've spent many fun hours playing badminton on a summer night in our back yard. Later, It was one of my kids favorite games to play with their neighborhood friends. It makes a fun family game, as all members, no matter what the age, can participate! A perfect way to pass the day and get some needed exercise.

      I just love badminton. It is a great game for the whole family. I like the glow in the dark stuff now. That will be good for playing late in the evening when it cools off a little.

      This is such a fun game that we've played for years. Family events were a bit wilder with outdoor sports.

      We got a badminton set as a family gift one year and we sure made use of it in our big front yard.. I remember reminding Dad "No spiking!", but every once in a while he just couldn't resist.
