From the Manufacturer
Speedminton, a new dimension in racquet sports, combines tennis, badminton, and racquetball and is endorsed by 2006 U.S. Open Champion Maria Sharapova. Easy to learn for beginners and fun for many advanced players, this game can be played anywhere by using the dimensions of a tennis court (although you don't need a net to play). It's fun and portable like badminton, aerobic and competitive like racquetball, and fun for the whole family.
Three Types of Play:
- Fun Speeder can be used by beginners or for recreational volleys on the beach or in a park.
- Match Speeder is for fast and competitive play.
- Night Speeder is modified so that a Speedlight can be inserted at the base.
A game is played to 16 points. Serve from the center of your playing field and players alternate service every three points. Play best-of-five to win a match.
|Freestyle ||No court, no rules, and no limits. From a recreational game at the beach to an exciting volley in total darkness, you can just play without keeping score. If it's windy, simply snap a wind ring onto the Speeder for added stability.|
|Outdoor Competition ||Use Easy Courts to set up a game at the beach or on grassy fields. You can also use cones to turn any open space or a tennis court into two Speed Courts.|
|Indoor Competition ||You can easily set up a game at any gym or indoor tennis court. No net is required--just mark your boundaries with the Easy Court or cones and you're ready to play.|
|Night Play ||The Night Speeder makes it possible to play at night. Just press a Speedlight into the clear Night Speeder head to let it glow in the dark (they glow 2-3 hours). |

The game, speedminton, is much faster than Badminton thanks to the weight of the "speeders" which are analogous to the birdies of Badminton. It took my spouse and me a few practice wacks to get used to the smash-to-speed of travel ratio of the birdies. And during the process, we had some good laughs seeing the glow-in-the-dark speeders zip around at night. Yes, you can play this game in the dark also thanks to those tiny 1.5" glow sticks.
Speaking of which, these are mere mini glow sticks you may get for fishing as one of the reviewers pointed out. Which means you could get 'em cheap here on Amazon should you run out of them. Like 50 mini sticks for about ~$6.
The rackets seem great quality stuff. I'm curious to see if they would work fine with Tennis. They don't come with a shock absorber plugged on the mesh so I'm guessing that may be slightly annoying. But looking forward to testing this out anyway.
We mostly just try to volley for as long as possible over insane distances, but it's a lot of fun either way. The set is very high quality and comes with everything that you need. It's really good exercise and really addicting. With the wind ring on you really can play in a good crosswind (still not so good to play into the wind) by slightly compensating for the curve; with regular badminton it's impossible to play in such conditions. The only negative is the number of people interrupting your game to ask you about it. :-)
-rackets made better than I thought. Very well made. The rackets are a cross between a tennis racket and badminton racket.
-Birdies are made well to. Read reviews that said birdies made poorly. Not so. They are made well. Played hard with them and they seem to last.
-very fast and tiring game. So fast. Very fun.
-birdies travel well even in breezy days. You can't play in windy days but can play in way more air movement then if your playing badminton.
-very quick setup. No net required.
- nice case everything fits in bag.
-instructions are wanting. Check the web page for better instruction.
Lots of fun. Good exercise. Can play in small areas and big areas. Surface can be almost anything you can run on. Almost any age can enjoy.
