Badminton is a fast-paced racket sport played both recreationally and competitively. It is typically played indoors on a rectangular court divided by a net. The game involves two or four players, with the objective of scoring points by hitting a shuttlecock (a feathered or synthetic projectile) over the net and into the opponent's side of the court. It offers a great way to stay physically active, improve one's fitness, and enjoy a competitive or recreational game. Whether played casually with friends or in a professional setting, badminton offers a combination of athleticism and fun.
