Badminton is a racquet sport played by either|
two opposing players (singles) or two opposing
pairs (doubles), who take positions on opposite
halves of a rectangular court divided by a net.
Players score points by striking a shuttlecock
with their racquet so that it passes over the
net and lands in their opponents' half of the
court. Each side may only strike the
shuttlecock once before it passes over the net.
A rally ends once the shuttlecock has struck
the floor, or if a fault has been called by
either the umpire or service judge or, in their
absence, the offending player, at any time
during the rally. 
The shuttlecock (or shuttle) is a feathered (or,
mainly in uncompetitive games, plastic)
projectile whose unique aerodynamic properties
cause it to fly differently from the balls used
in most racquet sports; in particular, the
feathers create much higher drag, causing the
shuttlecock to decelerate more rapidly than a
ball. Shuttlecocks have a much higher top
speed, when compared to other racquet sports.
Because shuttlecock flight is affected by wind,
competitive badminton is played indoors.
Badminton is also played outdoors as a casual
recreational activity, often as a garden or
Since 1992, badminton has been an Olympic
sport with five events: men's and women's
singles, men's and women's doubles, and mixed
doubles, in which each pair consists of a man
and a woman. At high levels of play, especially
in singles, the sport demands excellent fitness:
players require aerobic stamina, agility,
explosive strength, speed and precision. It is
also a technical sport, requiring good motor
coordination and the development of
sophisticated racquet movements.
