What makes badminton better than other racket sports?

by BWT Admin

Badminton is one of the most popular racket sports in the world. Badminton is played primarily in Asia, such as China, Indonesia, and India.

Badminton has some unique things which make it better than other racket sports. One of them is the ball.

Badminton uses a cone-like ball instead of a round one. We call the ball a shuttlecock (or just ‘shuttle’) or birdie.

The badminton shuttlecock can travel at high speeds. The fastest record is 493 km per hour. It makes badminton as the fastest racket sport in the world.

Badminton competition consists of five disciplines: men’s and women’s singles, men’s and women’s doubles, and mixed doubles. All these different categories are exciting to watch.

Men’s singles badminton players rarely play in doubles and vice versa. This makes all badminton events very interesting to watch because we don’t see the same player in two different categories.

People may only know singles players in other racket sports because those disciplines are more popular. But you can get to know both singles and doubles players in badminton because each discipline offers something unique.

In terms of economics, badminton is not that expensive to play. Badminton is economically playable by all people from different economic backgrounds.

Badminton is about being nimble-footed and placements, which is far more exciting to watch and play than in the case of lawn tennis. Table tennis can be exciting but can be too fast to relish. Badminton is just the right mix of power and skill.
