A brief history:

Badminton, although widely recognized today as a dynamic sport requiring speed and reflexes, has its roots in ancient games played over 2,000 years ago in Asia. It evolved from games such as ti jian zi in China, where players used their feet instead of rackets to propel a shuttlecock. However, it was in India that the game took on a form similar to the one we know today, under the name of Poona.

British officers stationed in India in the 19th century discovered the game and brought it back to England. There it was introduced as"Badminton", named after the Duke of Beaufort 's residence where the game was first played. The basic principle of badminton is simple: two or four players exchange a shuttlecock, using rackets, over a net, seeking to land it in the opponent's half-court without the opponent being able to return it. Speed and strategy are essential, as the shuttlecock, despite its light appearance, can be launched at speeds exceeding 300 km/h in the most powerful shots.
