Time’s different now where every child has his/her own badminton racket made from aluminium or graphite. We think now is a great time for every child to experience badminton like we never did before.
Let’s look at why Badminton should be introduced to every child.
Low start-up with minimal equipment or player
Badminton needs at least 2 players. A child would need a friend to play with. Secondly, the players would need a badminton racket each. They’ll also need at least 1 piece of shuttlecocks.
A pair of good sports shoes will help reduce feet injuries. Shoes should be indoor non-marking badminton shoes if they’re playing inside any badminton courts.
I remember playing badminton wearing slippers back then. The drawback is we couldn’t do much, we couldn’t jump or race for the shuttle.
Badminton is gentle and is considered a safe game for people from all ages and background. Common types of badminton-related injuries caused in badminton games are sprains and muscle strains which is relatively rare and low-risk if proper warm-up is done. Players who practise more on proper footwork and racket handling would reduce the risk further.
