What is Badminton

Grandparents and grandchildren will have fun playing badminton.

Badminton is an active sport that even young children can learn to play.  The British brought the game over from India in the 19th century, and it quickly caught on throughout the world. Badminton can be played with two or more players, a net, racquets and a shuttlecock.

"The aim of badminton is to hit the shuttle with your racket so that it passes over the net and lands inside your opponent’s half of the court," notes The Badminton Bible. "Whenever you do this, you have won a rally; win enough rallies, and you win the match."

Kids Sports Activities notes that you can easily modify the game for even the youngest players by:

  • Lowering the net
  • Allowing players more than one hit to get the birdie over the net
  • Eliminating the net altogether
