Best Answer

In India during the 18th Century.
Invention of Badminton - In China?

The Invention of Badminton was claimed by some parties to have happened in China during the 5th century BC originated from a game called 'Ti Jian Zi'.

This claim is disputable as 'Ti Jian Zi' is actually a game which you are suppose to use your feet and not a racket to hit the shuttle.

But since it is the first game to use a shuttlecock, I will give them due credit... Somehow I wonder if this has contributed to players from China being the powerhouse in World Badminton today. Just a thought...

Since I have a more detailed page here, I am just going to list down a few must know to better understand Badminton.

- The Badminton Game was first played in a place called Badminton, England.

- The IBF (International Badminton Federation) is the official body of World Badminton.

- Thomas Cup (men) and Uber Cup (women) are the most prestigious team event in World Badminton held every two years.

- The World Championship is the most prestigious individual event in World Badminton held every year.

Whether or not we can trace the true origin of the invention of badminton is not really important. The important thing is that you enjoy playing this game.
