Badminton at Colyton Leisure Centre
Fast paced and fabulous - badminton is a great racquet sport that offers tremendous physical and mental benefits for participants
Badminton is a racket sport played by either two opposing players (singles) or two opposing pairs (doubles), who take positions on opposite halves of a rectangular court that is divided by a net. Players score points by striking a shuttlecock with their racket so that it passes over the net and lands in their opponents' half of the court. A rally ends once the shuttlecock has struck the ground, and the shuttlecock may only be struck once by each side before it passes over the net. - Badminton WA
