Although the game of Badminton has existed in many different incarnations since the days of Ancient Greece, today's game derives from the western past-time of Battledore and Shuttlecock. It eventually developed into its present incarnation and was definitively launched in 1873 at badminton house, home of the Duke of Beaufort.
