Should I wear white clothing for badminton? 

There is a perception in the UK that badminton players should wear all white badminton tees tops t-shirts (Wimbledon tennis style). Historically, white clothing has been associated with sports like tennis and badminton due to its traditional and elegant appearance. It was believed that white clothing reflected a sense of sportsmanship and cleanliness on the court, but in truth this tradition died out decades ago and it’s perfectly acceptable to be as bright and colourful as you like on court.

Wearing white badminton tees tops t-shirts does however have some advantages. White badminton shirts reflect sunlight and heat better than dark-coloured clothing. This can help keep you cooler during intense matches, as lighter colours absorb less heat. Playing in comfortable clothing can enhance your performance and overall experience, so this may be something worth considering if you are often finding yourself over-heating on court during intense play.

Whereas some tennis clubs have white only dress codes, this is not applicable in any official club to our knowledge and is not mentioned in the official Badminton England tournament rules and dress codes. Fashion in the badminton industry is driven majorly by the preferences of the Asian market, where badminton is one of the most popular sports. Currently this has influenced most of the major badminton brands to sell majority brightly coloured badminton tops and badminton t-shirts which are extremely popular with the Asian market. 

Can badminton t-shirts be used for tennis?

There is no difference between badminton tees tops t-shirts and tennis tees tops t-shirts. Both sports require similar ranges of motion and some of the brands such as Yonex, Babolat and Dunlop are prominent in both industries. The same clothing can therefore be worn across both sports so there is no need to buy separate items each time if you are a player of both sports. The only major difference in badminton and tennis attire is with the shoes. It is not advisable to wear badminton shoes whilst playing tennis or tennis shoes whilst playing badminton as both sports require differing levels of support in different motions.
