We’ve been spending a lot of time outside lately because the sun has been shining and it’s been glorious. My husband will tell you that it’s actually starting to get hot. Sports are always a fun thing to do outside and over at our church we have a huge flat grassy area to play on. Franklin sent us the Franklin Advanced Badminton Set to play with. So we got it out and gave it a try. Minus the net, only because we need some practice still. Including how many rackets it takes to actually play the game.
I had Zoe, Miles and their friend Emily all playing together. They were taking turns hitting it to each other and I was always the cheerleader. When one of them actually hit it, I cheered as loud as I could. They LOVED IT.

- Poles: 1.125" diameter octagon, virgin PVC with 61’’ assembled height and scoring system
- Rackets: (4) “Tightstring” stringing, “soft-touch” padded grip, tempered steel shaft

- Guy rope: (2) Top and (2) middle
- Other: 6 adjustable guy rope tension clips
- Case: Deluxe messenger style carry bag
We had a really great time practicing together and it’s just fun to spend time as a family. I’m a very strong believer that a family that plays together and spends lots of time together has a strong family bond and helps you to raise kids that behave. As long as you’re together you know they’re not getting into trouble. Plus kids are so much fun to be around.
And when I really think about it what does it matter that she wanted to play with both rackets in her hand. The Regular Price is $39.99 on-line at Franklin.
We received samples.
