Badminton can be played professionally or at a laid-back setting like a family barbecue. Playing badminton means using rackets for every move. Sometimes these rackets become damaged or worn out if used for a prolonged period. You can replace the strings on a racket or even a damaged badminton grommet. Find grommets and grommet replacing tools at sporting goods stores or through online retailers.

  1. 1

    Purchase the correct size grommet for your racket. Bring in the racket to a sporting goods store and ask an employee for assistance. Or, look on the racket for a grommet size.

  2. 2

    Take a 3mm grommet grinder tool and insert it into the grommet on the outside of the racket.

  3. 3

    Twist the tool back and forth in the hole where the grommet is. Do this until the grommet disconnects from the racket's strip.

  4. 4

    Remove the grommet that you're replacing.

Tips and warnings

  • To complete the replacement procedure, insert a new grommet into the hole. Flip the racket over so you can see the inside of the frame. Cut off the excess grommet from the inside of the frame with a pair of wire cutters. Cut until you have about one-tenth of an inch of excess grommet left on the frame.
  • Be careful when using wire cutters as they are sharp.
