Kinds of basketballs

Leather basketball – The outer surface on these basketballs is 100% genuine leather in most cases. Due to this they tend to be more expensive. They can be used only on indoor surfaces as dirt, and the abrasiveness of the outdoor surface will ruin it quickly. Leather basketballs have to be “broken in” to achieve proper grip and control. This kind of basketball is recommended for recreational play.

Composite/ Synthetic leather basketball – When compared to leather basketballs, composite basketballs are more durable. They do not have to be broken in are can maintain itself better during a game. This kind is also not as expensive as leather basketballs, and another advantage is that it can be used both indoors as well as outdoors.

Rubber basketballs – These are the most durable kind, and are ideal for the wear and tear seen on outdoor basketball. They can be used on indoor courts as well. Rubber basketballs are the least expensive of the lot.

A couple of other things that you should know about basketballs:

Channeling – There are two kinds of channeling – narrow and wide. Wide channeling is much
better because it gives the player more control and grip.
Bladder of the basketball – The bladder of is the part which retains air. Butyl bladders have lower levels of air leakage in comparison to the latex bladders, and therefore are best suited for outdoor/ hard surfaces. For those who might play on a grassy surface basketballs that have a latex bladder.

They not only ensure your safety but also make for a more comfortable and smooth cycling experience.

Safety accessories

Helmet – The standard accessory that every cyclist must have is a helmet. When buying a helmet, your first consideration should be how it fits rather than the style of the helmet. A good helmet should fit correctly without any gap between it and your head. Different cycling style require different kinds of helmets, such as sport or multi-use helmets which are used by those who choose cycling as a for f recreation.

Lastly, the mountain bike helmet is made with an enhanced rear head coverage and secure fit to ensure that it stays on no matter the terrain.

Lights – This cycling accessory is a must have if you cycle at night. Front and rear lights must mainly to make you visible to others on the road, rather than to illuminate the way. Brands like Btwin make these kinds of lights. If you do not want to fix lights, an alternative is reflectors.

Locks – Having spent a fair amount on your bike you wouldn’t want it to get stolen. You can prevent this by buying a sturdy lock for it. You can either get a combination lock or a regular lock which can be opened with a key. Both these kinds of locks are made by Btwin.

National Sports Day – Time to make it Big - 31 Aug 2013 11:49

Tags:

August 29th is celebrated as National Sports Day to commemorate Dhyan Chand , one of India’s erstwhile hockey players. This Indian hockey legend redefined the sport for the country with his outstanding talent, and brilliant achievements. The aim of National Sports Day is to spread awareness about sports to every corner of the country and also enlighten people on the various opportunities in terms of international competitions and so on.

Celebrate National Sports Day!

nsd.jpg

National Sports Day is celebrated with various events such as walkathons, friendly hockey matches and for also football tournaments will also be hosted across the country. On Tuesday FICCI made it official that Dhyan Chand’s birth anniversary would be celebrated as National Sports Day. There’s a whole lot of sporting fun happening in India today, if you are a sports fanatic be a part of it!

The world typically does not associate India as a nation to sports naturally. While India may be one of the super powers in Cricket and Hockey (in past), there isn’t much to talk about in other sporting disciplines. And, hence this notion!

Dhyan Chand is one the all time greatest hockey players and it was not for nothing that he was nick named ‘The Wizard’. He mesmerized the world during his playing days with his superb ball control and goal scoring ability. Not surprisingly, Indian hockey was at its pinnacle during the times when Dhyan Chand was at helm. It is unfortunate that Indian hockey is no more a super power in current times.

The recent success and popularity of non cricketing sports like Badminton, Tennis, Wrestling, Archery and a few more is an encouraging sign. Today, we see lot more kids and young players getting seriously involved in these sports as well. Sporting properties like IPL, IBL, I-League have also successfully positioned sports as not just recreation but also as lucrative career option.

Understandably, the time when India will shine in Olympics and other multi-national multi-sports events is a little far away. But, we are at least taking the steps in the right direction!

Yonex Badminton Shuttlecock and Yonex Nylon Shuttlecock Online - 12 Aug 2013 07:03

Tags:

Like any other sporting equipment, shuttles too have evolved over the years. While the traditional shuttlecocks consist of 16 feathers, the more modern ones are made from plastic or nylon. Shuttles are graded according to their speed, if you are an expert you can use a standard speed shuttle and play from baseline to baseline. Conversely, if you are a beginner you can use faster shuttles till you build the necessary skill and power in the strokes. Weather and varying temperatures can affect your game, as these directly impact the flight of a shuttle. When it is cold the shuttle will move slower, and when temperatures are higher it will move faster.

Super Saver - Yonex Mavis 370 Badminton Nylon Shuttlecock

AAB0019_1.jpg

Feathered shuttles vs Synthetic shuttles

One of the first factors that are taken into consideration is price. Feathered shuttles tend to be more expensive than the nylon shuttlecock, the latter is preferred because it is far more durable, and lasts through more matches with minimal impairment.

Professional players usually stick to the feathered shuttles as it offers a better feel on impact with the racket string bed, and gives them better control of the shots. Novice players and those who play the game on a recreational level prefer the plastic ones.

In terms of performance, plastic shuttles fly slowly during initial impact, but take time to slow down when descending, which means that you cannot really a straight drop get falling. On the other hand, feathered shuttles fly fast on initial impact and slow down faster as they drop.

In the world of badminton Yonex is one of the biggest and most reputed brands.
Sports365 has an irresistible offer on Yonex shuttles. Check out the Super saver packs for both plastic and feathered shuttle cocks. The Mavis 10, Mavis 370 and Mavis 350 nylon shuttles are available at excellent prices! This online super saver offer lets you get a better discount with the more number of boxes you purchase.

Badminton Shoes Guide - 19 Jul 2013 13:53

Tags:

Badminton is a fast paced game. It requires quick direction changes and more lateral movement. Badminton shoes have a thinner sole and this lowers your center of gravity therefore reducing the risk of injuries. For this reason you should avoid buying regular running shoes or trainers if you play badminton. Here are some tips that will help you buy badminton shoes.

AAF0004-1%20(Copy).jpg

A good badminton shoe will ensure that -
• Performance is maximized during the game
• Prevent injuries

All Badminton shoes need to have some basic qualities as follows.
• Traction and grip
• Good cushioning
• Lightweight

Badminton Shoes

You can buy badminton shoes depending on the surface of the badminton court. Most people play on a wood or PU court, and some use a cement court. For those who play on a wood or PU court, shoes with gum rubber soles are the best. They provide ample traction and grip. When buying shoes with gum rubber soles you must remember that the sole accumulates dirt easily. This will reduce traction.

Here are a couple of things to keep in mind to avoid dirt accumulation:

Wear your shoes only when you are in the court.

Have a moistured towel by the court, step and rub on it from time to time to keep the soles clean.

For those playing on a cement surface a normal rubber sole is ideal.

Cushioning

Good cushioning will help you move quickly in different directions. The primary function of the cushioning is to absorb shocks. A good cushion can absorb the impact. Some shoes have specially designed cushion to do a better job here.

Beginners

If you want a pair of shoes that are sufficiently good for a casual badminton game, consider buying a shoe with the following technologies in it.

Ergoshape- is a contour, the way the shoes are shaped. It provides comfort and stability at the forefoot area and toes for efficient and organized badminton footwork.

Power cushion acts as a shock absorber. It enables the wearer to perform quick reverse movements. It is also excellent for maintaining body balance.

Double Russel Mesh- is the best breathable material available. They are super lightweight and durable. It provides 8 times better air-exchange when compared to normal shoes so that sweat does not get accumulated around your feet. It prevents blisters.

These shoes are reasonably priced and quite affordable.

Regulars

If you want to maximize your performance in the game there are more technologies available in the market today.

MsLite- is lightweight and provides great support for fast paced footwork to make the shoes durable.

Lateral Claw- adds to the power and quickness of your foot movement.

Hexagrip Sole- created for agile and stable footwork. The hexagrip pattern is made from a newly developed material that provides 3% more gripping power and is 20% lighter than an ordinary material.

As you move up in price, you get additional features as follows.

Super MsLite- This super performance construction features a polymer-based midsole 10% lighter than MsLite.

Round sole- It provides a feeling of natural comfort under the foot and maximizes the transfer of body energy into movements around the court.

Power Graphite Light- This 3D graphite sheet sole plate provides high stability and it cushions the impact on landing.

Power Cushion Insole MC- It provides instant resilience that minimizes shock.

These shoes can be slightly expensive, but worth the money since they last for a long time.

Badminton shoes for men, women and kids

The badminton shoes for both men and women share almost all the features as far as the make is taken into consideration. They just differ in style, shape and color. They come in cool colors for men and tend to be feminine when it comes to ladies badminton shoes. Badminton shoes for kids also have the same features, but they are of limited-edition and come in smaller shoe sizes.

You can buy a great pair of badminton shoes from Sports365. Have a look at our website. - Comments: 0
