For the first time since I’ve started grad school, I’ve found myself without a personal racket to use. That’s because I managed to break the strings on both of my rackets without about a week. The strings on my main racket were worn out and broke in the center. As for the backup racket, I hit a shot with the top of the racket and the string broke. Since both of my rackets are out of commission, I have to use the club public rackets to play. As expected, those rackets don’t feel nearly as good. I don’t think there are any badminton racket stringing services in the area, so I’ll have to wait until winter vacation to bring my rackets back home to get them strung and/or get some other rackets from JP.
