For decades, badminton balls (shuttlecocks) have been made of real feathers (natural feather balls) or nylon (synthetic balls). The topic is very extensive, as there are countless manufacturers in both model ranges with different speeds, weights, materials and price categories for the most diverse needs of the players. Now, the FORZA company is pushing forward with a world first and is trying to place a new third category of HYBRID balls on the market. The BADLAB "racket team" wanted to know exactly what this is all about and tried out the Forza Hybrid 5000 during training.

1. Badminton is challenging and simple at the same time. Even with beginners there are rallies - but it is a long way to go to badminton at a high level. Nevertheless, it is fun at every level.
2. After running, badminton is the most effective form of training for the cardiovascular system. Half an hour to a full hour twice a week is enough to increase your fitness level a lot.
3. Badminton as an internal combustion engine. You are constantly on the move and the body burns many calories, almost without even realizing it. Lose weight and have fun doing it - where else can you find that?
4. You can play badminton from 7 to 70 years - and even women and men together! There is hardly any other sport. By the way, a Bundesliga team also consists of women and men.
5. You can play badminton almost anywhere. Many cities have one or even several clubs and often also a badminton center. In summer you can even go to the park or garden.
