Recycle Broken Badminton Racquet

A few days ago, after much ego of becoming the next Chong Wei of the country, things went wrong in the badminton court.

My badminton racquet broke.


Not only did it just break, it broke into two just like this.



Maybe it was the powerful smash.

Maybe it was the tightness of the string.

Maybe it was the pink color of the racquet thats filled with it that made the racquet too hot for the "pinky" who used my racquet.


Whatever it is, the racquet is now broken after being bought for only one week.

Not to say, with the racquet broken, the ego of being the next badminton champion of the country went along with it.

The shop that provided a year long warranty for the racquet only covered accidents that, let me put it this way, were not Man-Made.

With all their experience, they concluded that mine was man-made. (Not to argue of course)



So, what had become of this expensive racquet no longer has value.

Now...here's the interesting part.

Before you start to throw away your racquet into the bin to keep the environment cleaner,


I mean you ain't going to keep a broken racquet for your future generations to use right?


THE RACQUET STILL HAS VALUE!!

Don't worry i'm just as surprised as you are!!What I'm Talking about??

Apparently I was told that some shop around Komtar will accept your broken racquet for as much as RM60.

RM60 for a BROKEN RACQUET.

Trade in of-course for a new racquet. Does not matter what brand it is, as long as it looks like a badminton racquet or umm close to it. (Don't bring tennis racquet la)

So there you go guys, don't throw away your broken racquet yet, its still worth at least RM60!! Keep your ego intact, keep playing badminton, and continue your journey to be the next Chong Wei for the country. Will update to you whether this is true, but hold on to your broken racquets.

Gin, you ni banyak ganas! Stu minggu aja, you punya racket dah rosak? Ooo... banyak ganas.

I too play badminton on Monday with Jimmy, Henrick and WeeKeat, buy your pro-ness, you're totally out of our amateur league. LOL.

Mr Gin said...

eh no problem la...hey would love to join u guys...where u playing??

Dann said...

Monday at Permata. 7-9PM. But i felt you would be disappointed, cause we're like purely amateur. LOL. You're too pro for us, at least not for Jimmy.

However WeeKeat would begin his working hour based and on shift, and my gf is back. So we're arent too sure if we're able to attend week in week out.

Anyhow, i'll send u a msg or give you a call next monday to get your feedback if your interested. ^^

Gin! You step on someone's tail recently? The spamming goes again...

You could use the sitemeter to track the ipaddress and from where it comes from. Try to figure out who's the culprit.

H e n r i c k said...

lolz.. I already told him mar.. he kena spammed big times. Just report it to Google la.

Btw Gin, you are right. The shop near to Komtar there offered RM60 for recycle racquets. You know the old Shell petrol station which has closed long time ago? Beside that Shell there's one shop lot selling sports equipments. That is the shop you can go. :)

Mr Gin said...

Dann:hahaha..its ok ler...hey make sure u let me know when u all are playing k.

henrick: ohh okok...thanks for the info!!i guess i'll have to make it harder to comment..

I am an intermediate level player and only had a few chances to play with my newly purchased racket.But what a difference it made to my game!Before, I was using a borrowed racket and I would have to put more oomph into every shot to give the birdie any speed.
