Badminton Racquet Stringing for Teens & Children

Teens and children are not the same as adults. If your goal is to make the game easier and more enjoyable for players in these age groups, then it is a mistake to string their racquets as though they are adults.

Description

Teens and children are not the same as adults. If your goal is to make the game easier and more enjoyable for players in these age groups, then it is a mistake to string their racquets as though they are adults.

Racquet Stringing for Children (6-10 years)

Like adults, children enjoy games when they succeed. In badminton, success comes from being able to hit the shuttle far at the right times. When a racquet is strung too tightly or with string that is too thick, children cannot succeed.

If you want to help your child succeed, bring them in so our coaches can meet them and assess their needs. We can help them pick the right string and string their racquet at the right tension so that we can maximize their enjoyment.

Racquet Stringing for Pre-Teens (11-12 years)

Like adults, young teens enjoy games when they succeed. In badminton, success comes from being able to hit the shuttle far at the right times. When a racquet is strung too tightly or with string that is too thick, children cannot succeed. At the same time, though, we cannot string their racquets with string that is so thin that it is breaking every other week.

If you want to help your young teen find the right balance between enjoyment and durability, bring them in so our coaches can meet them and assess their needs. We can help them pick the right string and string their racquet at the right tension so that we can maximize their enjoyment while minimizing restringing costs.

Racquet Stringing for Older Teens

Older teens are not all the same. Most young ladies need some assistance from their string and tension, but not all do. Most young men need durable string, but not all do. In fact, some still need thinner strings and lower tensions, even though they are well into their late teens. As with the above age groups, we recommend that you bring them in so our coaches can meet them and assess their needs. We can help them pick the right string and string their racquet at the right tension so that we can maximize their enjoyment while minimizing restringing costs.
