Badminton is a racket sport in which players hit a shuttlecock back and forth over a net. It is a game that can be played either as singles or doubles and the object of the game is to score points by hitting a shot that your opponent cannot reach or by forcing them into making an error.
Badminton England is the sport's governing body in England.
