Badminton



The sport of badminton is supposed to have originated in Greece, about 2000 years ago.
with teams of two (two people on each opposing team) or as a singles game where one person plays against another single person. Both of these sports including other sports such as Squash, Racket Ball and Ping Pong use a type of racket (in Ping Pong a paddle). However the differences between badminton and these various racket sports are many
Different from tennis, badminton uses a shuttlecock, otherwise known as a shuttle or birdie and the shuttle is not allowed to hit the ground as in tennis. Squash is another racket sport that is played with two players but differs in several ways from badminton.
Badminton is a racquet sport played using racquets to hit a shuttlecock  across a net . Although it may be played with larger teams, the most common forms of the game are "singles" (with one player per side) and "doubles" (with two players per side). Badminton is often played as a casual outdoor activity in a yard or on a beach; formal games are played on a rectangular indoor court. Points are scored by striking the shuttlecock with the racquet and landing it within the opposing side's half of the court.
Each side may only strike the shuttlecock once before it passes over the net. Play ends once the shuttlecock has struck the floor or if a fault has been called by the umpire, service judge, or (in their absence) the opposing side
All of these sports have the same general idea which is to score a point on your opponent by creating sufficient doubt or hesitation causing them to miss the shot available. There are deceptive shots and similarities in the types of swing in all these games when compared to badminton
