The main objective of the game of badminton is to hit a small object called the shuttle that features a rubber ball with a ring of feathers attached to it using a racket. The game is all about the to and fro movement of the shuttle across a raised net hitting by a racket. The badminton racket is weightless yet strong and durable. Earlier the rackets were made up of wood but now they are made up of high-tech materials. The Badminton World Federation (BWF) states the laws that determine the parts, shape weight and forms of the ideal badminton rackets to be used in different competitions.

Today most of the badminton rackets are made using these materials.
