Badminton became an Olymic sport on 1992 in Barcelona.
Badminton is not played with a ball. Badminton uses a feathered object called a shuttlecock, or shuttle.
Badminton is played with a birdie, or formally a shuttlecock.
It is either called a birdie or a shuttlecock or shuttle for short.
like tennis, in badminton you hit a "ball" over a net with a racket. however for badminton you hit a "shuttlecock" which is the ball with feathers. the racket for badminton is also much lighter than a tennis racket mostly because the "ball" is lighter. badminton net is also higher, but not as high as a volleyball net
That is the main thing u need to play! just like you need a Tennis ball for tennis to hit the ball, you need a birdie to to pass it back and forth. i love Badminton! <3
If you are able to hit the ball, using both forehand and backhand, then you're doing great. Those are the most basic hits used in badminton.
