What is Badminton?
Are you looking for a way to get fit, release frustrations from a long day and make friends all at the same time? If so, badminton is the sport to try! Rack up points in an indoor court by hitting a shuttlecock over the net into your opponent’s half. You’ll get a good work out running around the court, and you’ll also be helping your agility and coordination. You can find a court at most leisure centres and local gyms. It doesn’t need to be competitive either, if you’re looking for a social workout, head to your garden or local gym for a recreational match against a friend or two.
What are the benefits?
- Improves reflexes, intelligence and productivity
- Likely to put you in a good mood as it’s a social activity
- Reduces stress and anxiety
- Easy to adopt
What will I need?
All you need is comfortable clothing and shoes to run around in. Organisers will provide anything else you might need, but if you’re hiring a court yourself then you’ll probably need to hire or supply your own racquet and shuttlecock.
