Badminton: Origine Histoire

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.

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. I love the defensive play where it looks like the point is over but somehow, the shuttle keeps coming back. It’s truly something that’s amazing and has my legs and body twitching when I’m watching! And I know for sure that many others feel the same way.
