speedmintonC  It’s always especially nice to get review items that the kids can enjoy too.   Even better when it’s something that will get them outside and away from technology for a bit.  This Speedminton badminton set was a hit as soon as our son Hayden saw it!  The first thing he said was  “Wow! This is awesome and these racquets are so light!”   Lightweight racquets are great because they give  you more control and keep your arms from getting tired so you can play longer.  The set also includes different birdies. There are ones for beginners, one for windier days, one for greater speed and even one that glows in the dark.  It also has cones for marking off boundaries, glow in the dark sticks for night time play and an awesome backpack style case to carry it all in.  (Speedminton isn’t normally played with a net although they used one.)

Matt & Hayden started playing while I was fixing dinner and still didn’t seem to want to stop when it was time to come inside and eat.  The whole time I was cooking I could hear them outside laughing and yelling “score!” or “haha!  you suck!”…and at one point Hayden ended up laying on the ground because he was laughing so hard he couldn’t stand up.  (From what I understood, neither of them were very good and it was quite funny)

speedmintonBy the time dinner was over it was getting dark so they got out one of the glow sticks and put it into the birdie.   What a great idea!    The birdie was very bright and quite easy to see and both of them said that they loved being able to play in the dark.  I had never seen an option like this on a badminton set and think it’s a great touch. The birdie  looked really cool and it was fun watching them play when they could barely see each other.

speedmintonD This would make a wonderful Christmas present if you live in an area with mild Winter weather.   It’s great fun and the option to be able to play in the dark is wonderful.

  1. It’s about time someone came out with this! My family has talked about light up birdies for yrs! We all love badminton! when my brother and sister in law lived next door, we would all go out side and play volley ball or badminton, and it was always the funnest at night. We would laugh so hard at each other missing the birdie or getting hit with it!! This would have been great 5 yrs ago!

      I’m sure they would, especially the night time play with the glow in the dark birdie…that was fun just to watch!

  3. Looks like fun 🙂 My 4 kids would be arguing over who gets to play…. Only challenge we have, is no grass — would have to borrow the neighbor’s yard… or go up to the school yard (near by)…

  5. Jessica Rudnick says:

    My daughter would love this! Thanks! I will have to get her one. She just learned how to play this Summer!

  6. Wow! This sounds as much fun as it looks! I love having the birdies for windy weather and really love the birdie with light stick!! What a wonderful idea! I will be getting one for our family, with the lightweight birdie, we could even use it for indoor play! Thank you for your wonderful reviews, I love having someone tell me their experience with a product before I purchase.

    Some of the best times we had when we were young was playing outside till time to go to bed. One of the things liked to do was chase fireflies (lightening bugs) and can imagine hitting the Speedminton birdie would be fun to chase with the glow in it. My children also played outside a lot and think my grand kids would love this, thanks for review!!
