adidas Badminton is coming to the UK – it’s a new game.

The adidas Badminton range will be available to UK and Ireland trade to order from February 2013.

The Hong Kong based sports licensee KWCC will manufacture and sell adidas Badminton racquets and accessories globally from 2013 through its worldwide distribution network.

The company boosted its Badminton expertise two years ago by hiring experienced sports engineers and developers and has since worked on producing a highly innovative range.

The core range consists of 27 racquets in four different benefit pillars: adizero, adipower, Precision and Switch.

The hardware range will also include a developed shuttlecock with a range of nylon and feather options.

There will also be a complementary range of grips, strings, bags and accessories.

KWCC will also be the global distributor for a new range of adidas Badminton specific clothing and footwear.

Racket Sports Europe is the UK and Ireland subsidiary for KWCC responsible for the exclusive distribution and marketing of adidas badminton products in these countries.

Stuart Beattie, managing director for Racket Sports Europe, says: “We feel extremely privileged to have been given this opportunity by adidas to distribute and promote performance and recreational badminton products to the UK and Irish markets.

“We have assembled a highly experienced UK team to ensure adidas badminton continues to reflect the adidas brand values of innovation, commitment, authenticity, passion, inspiration and honesty.

“We look forward to working with the UK and Irish retail trade and badminton community.”

Accompanying the launch will be a comprehensive global and UK focused marketing campaign, two aspects of which have already been actioned.

adidas’ first player signing is a major global men’s singles talent, who will join the brand on March 1.

Additional major signings will follow.

In addition to this, the adidas badminton Facebook page has launched and will play an integral role in communicating with the badminton community.
