Badminton Accessory

In this Badminton Accessory category, I have grouped five items under it. They are Grip, Badminton Clothes, Socks, Wrist Band and Head Band.


You can choose to use either a towel grip or a synthetic one. Both serve the same purpose, which is to absorb sweat and provide you a drier feel.

So it's really up to personal preference as to which to use. I personally prefer to use the synthetic ones. I don't feel comfortable with the towel ones.

I would recommend that you change your grips more often if you really want to enjoy playing Badminton as well as for hygiene purposes.

Badminton Clothes

Always wear shirts and shorts that are comfortable and will not hinder your movements. I usually wear a cotton round-neck or a collar t-shirts with a pair of light shorts.

Badminton is a game with much cardiovascular activity. So there will always be a lot of sweat. Usually a normal cotton t-shirt will do well to absorb your sweat, but you can always go for a more fancy shirt that does it better.

A track suit is useful too, so that you can warm up before play and cool down gradually afterwards.


Wear a pair of thick cotton socks as they help to absorb sweat. It will prevent your feet from slipping inside your shoes. Nylon socks can stretch and provide good fit but are not suitable for badminton as they can't absorb much sweat.

Wrist Band

If you are those that perspire a lot, consider getting a wrist band. It will prevent your sweat from flowing to your racket handle.

Head Band

Wear a Head Band if you are wearing spectacles. It will prevent your lenses from getting wet. Head Bands will also stop the sweat from getting into your eyes.
