    Return to Activity guidance from Badminton England


    Badminton is Britain's most popular indoor racket sport based around a simple rule: keep the shuttle off the floor with your racket and hit it back over the net to your opponent, inside the court. It's an easy sport to start with the shuttlecock moving more slowly than most other racket sports but practice is rewarded with a fast, technical and tactical game.
