Badminton is a very fun activity, especially for family members and friends. However, it is also considered as an actual sports event, and like every other sports event you can wager your money on a game of badminton. This is a game that is played with racquets, which are used for hitting a “ball” that is called a shuttlecock, across the net. Even if badminton can be played in larger groups of teams, the most common are for it to be played in singles (where there is one player per both sides) or doubles (where there are two players on each side). Badminton is an entertaining game that can be played anywhere, usually, families play it as an outdoor activity in a yard or just on a beach; in a formal game, badminton is played on an indoor rectangular court. The points in this game are scored when the opposing team lands the ball in the other team’s half of the court.
Each team is allowed to strike the shuttlecock only once before the shuttlecock passes over the net. The play will end once the “ball” has fallen on the floor, or if one of the teams had a fault in their play, which is called by the service judge, umpire or the opposing side (if the two previous are absent). The “ball” which is usually referred to as the shuttlecock is a feathered or in some informal matches a plastic projectile, which is able to fly away in a different way than most of the other balls used in sports.
This game was developed in British India, and it came from an earlier game version called the battledore and shuttle cock. The European game has become really popular in Asia, but it has also been dominated by Denmark and recently dominated by China. Badminton has always been a sport with 5 events, a summer Olympic sport since 1992. Those five events were: women’s singles, men’s singles, women’s doubles, men’s doubles and, of course, mixed doubles. Even if it does not seem like it, badminton actually requires a high level of fitness; players need aerobic stamina, strength, agility, precision, and speed. Since it is also a technical sport, it requires great motor coordination and the growth of sophisticated movements (by racquets).
Even if it is not a major sports event, badminton is still played very competitively and some individuals can make a profit by betting on these games. Like it was mentioned earlier, badminton uses a type of a ball called the shuttlecock, which can reach the speed up to 200 mph when it is hit by a player. This is definitely not a sport that deserves to be dismissed as an inferior sport, just because it is not that well known. The players who want to reach the top of this game, need to be athletic, agile and they must have very quick reactions. In 1992, badminton was recognized by the international community …
