Welcome To Racquetwise

Hi there, my name is Paw Markus and I’m a Danish guy who first started playing badminton at the age of 15!

Growing up, I loved watching the Danish badminton legend Peter Gade on TV during the Olympics. Watching him play was amazing and I found the sport extraordinarily entertaining to watch.

As I’m writing this (October 14, 2020), I am actually watching the Denmark Open on my second screen.

My own badminton career (still going) started a bit late, but nevertheless I enjoy every second spent on court.

In the past few years, my passion for racket sports deepened, and I began getting a lot more into the equipment.

However, when I looked online I mostly found commercial pages designed to sell more rackets (and expensive ones!), while not necessarily giving the best advice.

So, I decided to start Racquetwise to share my learnings about racket sports and its equipment with you.

How I Create Content

All the content you find on Racquetwise.com has been planned and edited by me personally, to make sure the quality is of the highest quality.

I do get help by freelancers to put together some articles, but as mentioned before, I personally edit every single piece of content that goes live on this website.

This is to make sure that everything you read is accurate and up-to date, so you can trust the advice and recommendations we give.

Hands On Approach

We try to test out the rackets and other equipment mentioned on the blog firsthand, to get real life experience with it.

In some cases, this is not possible, so we also rely on extensive online research and feedback from real customers of these items.

Furthermore, I spend a lot of time talking to coaches, players, store owners and staff to get to know the different products that come out, which might be interesting to you.

It’s important to me that Racquetwise is a place you can trust and that isn’t stuffed with ads and sponsors, so you can use the information you find here to make high-quality and informed decisions, when it comes to badminton and other racket sports.

What’s In It For You?

So, why should you read Racquetwise?

The biggest reason why you would want to learn more, is if you want to dramatically improve your experience in your racket sport.

If you find yourself nodding at these statements, I’m sure you will enjoy the content on our site:

  • You want to improve your level in your preferred racket sport.
  • You want to feel excited about your sport and the equipment you have.
  • You want equipment advice based on real-life and customer experience, not commercial sales pages.
  • You know that the racket and other equipment you use can make a big difference in your game play, so you want to make the right decision.
  • You don’t want to waste your money on equipment that’s not of the quality you expected.

If this sounds like you, I am excited for you to start reading our guides and tests!
