Badminton PE 6/7 Miss Toane

History Badminton is one the world's fastest racket sports. At high levels it uses quick reflexes and strong conditioning. In a badminton smash, the shuttlecock flight has been timed at speeds over 200 mph in top international competition. Badminton came from the game of battledore and shuttlecock. Players tried to keep the shuttlecock in the air as long as possible. Adults and children played badminton at least 2000 years ago in ancient Greece, and more recently in China, Japan, India and Siam (now Thailand). Sometimes feet were used instead of bats. Court
