Badminton Explainer - 2017 Summer Universiade
Did you know badminton is the fastest sport in the world?
Badminton may look like an easy sport, but it actually requires players to have strong stamina to constantly return the shuttlecock! On the court, players have to give their all - whether doing the smash shot or lob shot - opponents can gain a point in a blink of an eye! Diving onto the floor to make a save is very common.
The rules are straightforward, a point is earned once the shuttlecock strikes within the opponent’s court, the first to win 21 points takes the match.
