What is badminton? Badminton is a racket sport and is one of the five major racket sports. The others are of course tennis, table tennis, squash, and racket ball. Unlike the other racket sports badminton is purely volley sport in which the shuttlecock is not allowed to fall land or on the floor before the opponent hits it. The sport was originated by British India in the mid 18th century became very popular in Asia and Europe and has been dominated by those countries ever since. The badminton equipment is very similar to tennis. We have a racket unlike tennis you have some thing called a shuttlecock i guess you can call it as projectile that is struck with racket and it is typically composed of 16 feathers all from the same wing of either a goose or duck depending on the quality of shuttle. Some times the shuttle is made up of plastic but that is more of the recreational level. Especially the goose is the much better quality that last longer the flight of the shuttle using goose feathers is much more stable and predictable. Duck is used in lower quality more recreational games and plastic is for mostly beginners and that's what badminton is.
