Is a racquet sport played by either two opposing players (single) or two opposing pairs (double), who take positions on the opposite halves of a rectangular court that is divided by a net. Players score points by striking the shuttlecock with the racquet so that it passes over the net and lands in their opponent’s half of the court. Each side may only strike the shuttlecock once before it passes over the net.

• The history of badminton shows that it had its roots in an old children’s game in England known as battledore and shuttlecock. • British Army officers in India played a grown up version of this game. Known in its early days as ‘poona’, it was played with many people who tried to keep the ‘bird’ in air. • The new sport was definitively launched in 1873 at the Badminton House, Gloucestershire, owned by the Duke of Beaufortt. During that time, the game was referred to as "The Game of Badminton," and the game's official name became Badminton.
