Badminton is a racquet game played over a net on a rectangular court involving a shuttlecock (this is half a rubber ball with feathers attached in a cone shape). It’s a little like tennis except the net is higher off the ground more like a volleyball net and the racquets are much smaller and softer.
Badminton is easily accessible to both girls and boys. On a social level, boys and girls can play, train and compete together.
