Better By Design

The HL Badminton equipment company was founded in California in 1973 as HL International Sports, selling one product the HL Champion feather shuttlecock. In 1975 HL forever left its mark in the world of sports equipment when Richard Haglund (the "H" in HL) invented the process of using graphite fibers in the production compound curves. Soon after the first graphite badminton racket was born, the “HL Graflite”. It revolutionized the industry laying the foundation for the modern rackets of today. Today, HL Badminton is the only all-American badminton specialist brand. HL badminton is focused on quality and value, offering rackets at the PE level that are used in schools across the country to high end tournament rackets. The HL Condor shuttlecock is the gold standard of interscholastic competition across the High Schools and Middle Schools of the United States.
