Shuttle Care

We use goose feather shuttlecocks which are a significant cost to the club, so please take good care of them - follow the tips below!

Everyone wants to play games with a decent shuttle that flies properly, so follow our guide to making your shuttle last longer.

1. Warm up with old shuttles only.

- save new shuttles for the proper game, it's only a warm-up not an Olympic final!

2. Avoid hitting the feathers (especialy when passing he shuttle between points)

- hitting the feathers instead of the cork is a sure way to ruin the shuttle, so always aim for the pointy end!

3. "Tidy" the feathers between points

- simply straighten the fathers and neaten them up; it's easy and makes them look nice and last longer as well as fly properly.
