Badminton is a sport, in which dexterity, coordination, and logical thinking is being developed. Badminton is named for the game played  in pairs. If game is being played by one couple, it is called single game, if played by two pairs -  double game. 

The game uses a special racket and a ball with feathers. This ball is popularly called the frill.  

Many players the game attracts with its different direction, because the ball direction and change is not predictable. 

This is a very active sport, because during this sport all muscle groups are being trained very active. 

Playing field is divided into two parts - in the middle there is net, whose height is 1.5 m. Badminton participant role is to blow the ball across the net and land it in the opposite square. But  no participant allows the ball landing on its side of the square. 

When the first serve is being done – head can not be higher that the waist of the body. 

Although this is not one of the most popular sports in Latvia, elsewhere in the world (e.g. United Kingdom) it is very popular.
