It helps the player to hold the racquet firmly Players most commonly use PU synthetic or towelling grips but it depends to personal preferences. There is a problem that players encounter and that is sweat. Some players put drying agents on the grips or on to their hands, sweatbands may be used also. Shoes Shoes have to be lightweight with rubber soles or similar high grip, non-marking materials and have a little lateral support. Players should wear proper badminton or lightweight shoes rather than running shoes or trainers Equipment to decrease friction Strings and racquets Strings increase friction when hitting the cork-like base of the shuttlecock but also racquets and strings both decrease as they go through the air and air is a fluid.
