Badminton is a court game where two or four players use a light racket to volley a shuttlecock over a net until missed or hit out of bounds by an opponent. Games are typically played to 21 points.

Popular since the 1870's, the rules were drawn up by British officers stationed in India and codified with the formation of the Badminton Association in 1893.
