Best Answer

Badminton began in the mid-18th century when a net was added to the game called "Battledore and Shuttlecock". It was also called "Poona" as it was particularly popular in the town of Poona (now Pune). The game then became known as "Badminton Battledore" in about 1860 and then "Badminton" when played in 1873 at Badminton House.
