by Henry Wong July 03, 2019 3 min read

Badminton's origins are believed to be traced back for more than two thousand years in ancient civilisations of Greece and Egypt. A badminton-like game named Battledore and Shuttlecock involved two players who hit a feather shuttlecock back and forth with paddles for as long as possible without hitting the ground. It was also referred to as Jeu De Volant, which means "The Game of Flight" in French; this is also the origin of our brand name.

Why TV doesn’t do our sport justice

by Jeffrey Tho June 12, 2019 5 min read 2 Comments

I love badminton.

The speed and power of the top players. How quick their reactions are, their skills, gameplay and strategy in high-pressure situations.

And I know for sure that many others feel the same way.
