Badminton

Badminton is a racket sport that involves hitting a shuttlecock over a net on indoor courts. Points are scored when the opponent is unable to return the shuttlecock before it hits the floor.

An Overview of Badminton

  • Badminton is the world's fastest racquet sport, there's a raised net and you can play singles or doubles.
  • The aim is to hit a shuttlecock, a cone shaped object usually made of feathers with a cork or rubber base, over the net with your racquet.
  • If the shuttlecock lands inside your opponent's half, or if they fail to return it back over the net in the rally, you win the point.
  • The first to 21 points will win a game, and a match is a best out of three games.

Courts can be found in schools, universities, leisure centres, badminton and mixed sports clubs.
