 I feel a bit stupid asking this, but...

I bought this Wilson racquet at a fleamarket a while ago, but can't for the life of me figure out if it is a squash racquet or badminton racquet? Length is 670mm and width 200mm. It says "Graphite Force" and "PWS" on a few places on the frame and shaft.

It just seems a bit too flimsy to be a squash racquet - on the other hand the shape would make it a very unusual badminton racquet. Thanks in advance for any help!

well it looks like a squash racket to me.  A badminton racket is very light and the strings quite thin. I would think if you hit a squash ball with a badminton racket the frame would end up warping, and the ball end up making a hole in the strings.  Hitting a feather and hitting a squash ball with the same racket does not make any sense.

Sell the racket and start again sounds a good thing.

 I have one of these as well. It is a badminton racket.  Not sure if its leagal in proper matches or not.  Never see any like this anymore so assuming it probably is not.  I would think this shape would probably give you some advantage for slamming.  Don't tend to use mine anymore, its just my backup.

 Would this pass regulation?
