Some days you’re serving aces and others you’re being called on an accidental carry, but one thing’s for sure, badminton requires stamina, agility, speed and precision. As a technical sport, players must have good coordination navigating their racquets to hit a shuttlecock or birdie, a cork with attached feathers creating a cone shape, across a net.

Badminton has a longstanding history as an attractive sport for competitors regardless of age. With some of our local Cleveland clubs dating back to the 1930s, dedication to this sport has seen enthusiasts from high school students to masters athletes pick up their racquets in friendly competition.

In 1992, badminton became a Summer Olympic staple offering single, solo player and double, or two players a side, matches.

Flash forward to Summer 2024, we can’t wait to see all the drives, drop shots and kills that sail over the nets as the race to 21 points heats up The Land.
