Unique Equipment and Accessories for the Badminton Athlete
WYSONG PRACTICE BADMINTON STATION™
Some time ago someone expressed interest in a automatic badminton
machine. This is to inform you that now, after over four years in
development, we have finished our first production model and others are in
preliminary assembly stages.
The machine has gone through much revision to create a product that would be
as simple and reliable as possible, yet perform essentially every function a
coach who is feeding shuttlecocks could do...and more.
The machine will precisely:
Controls include speed (distance), rate (shuttles per minute) and a wireless
The unit is lightweight and portable. The base is a cart on casters, and the
carrousel holding the shuttles removes easily for refilling. The machine
(weighing only 25 lbs.) lifts off a pedestal mounted to the top of the cart
The unit doubles as a training station for serving by removing the machine
from the table pedestal and replacing it with an adapter that the carousel can
then be mounted to(See model to right in photo). By placing the cart with the
mounted carrousel holding the shuttlecocks next to the server, hundreds of
birds are within easy reach for practice.
The carrousel holds 250 plastic or feather shuttlecocks. Additional
carrousels are available as an option so that while the machine is running,
another carrousel can be filled to be ready when the first is empty. This can
create non-stop feeding. A special telescoping rake is included to permit
gathering the birds into a pile for easy reloading of the carrousel.
This is a beautiful device and fascinating to watch operate. Its body is made
of clear space age polymers which permit direct viewing of all operations.
Everything is also modular so that if repair is needed, parts can be easily
removed for service or replacement.
We guarantee satisfaction. If you order it and do not find it to be
everything you have dreamed of for a perfect feeding coach, return it in
resaleable condition within thirty days and your money will be refunded minus
Each machine is individually hand-crafted and guaranteed for one year, parts
and labor, for any defect other than normal wear.
Price: $3,795.00 plus shipping (compare to the only other one we know of that
is being made [in Europe] for $15,000!). This is a special introductory offer
and does not begin to cover manufacturing and development costs. We offer it
out of a love for badminton and the belief that it can do much to advance the
If there is significant interest in the machine, we have also developed a
computer controlled prototype permitting programming of an infinite array of
drills. But this machine will not be taken into production until it is clear
that there is the level of demand justifying its final engineering and
Club owners, rent it by the hour and it will pay for itself over and over.
This is not to mention its ability to train players rapidly so that their
enthusiasm for the sport is greatly fanned. Also consider the possibilities
with contests using the machine, or the ease for coaches to train youngsters
or new enthusiasts. For the advanced player or novice alike, this is a
totally unique tool that can greatly enhance skills in a short period of time.

The portable court system is designed for temporary portable use. Although the use of tape for lines in the concentrated center areas of play greatly reduces line movement, the perimeter portable lines are loose on the floor and can be moved by feet in play.

Tripping is also possible and awareness of this possibility should cause vigilance in keeping the lines secured flat to the floor.
