Why play badminton?
Badminton is the fastest racquet sport in the world.
Badminton is fun for all ages and skill levels.
One is obviously the health benefits. Badminton keeps you fit and is good cardio vascular exercise.
It trains the body for endurance. It is not only a physical game but it also a mental game.
Playing badminton develops and exercises hand eye co-ordination while at the same time, the numerous positions that you have to twist into build a strong spine.
One of the most important benefits is the badminton community. You will never meet a group of nicer people.
Badminton originated in Greece, India and China and evolved from the game of battledore and shuttlecock.
The current day game was first played in 1873 at Badminton in Gloucestershire.
The Duke of Beaufort wanted to play a game inside and he couldn't play tennis because he kept smashing his ornaments, so he resorted to using a racket and shuttlecock - hence badminton!
