About badminton

Badminton has its origins in ancient civilisations in Europe and Asia.  The ancient game known as battledore (bat or paddle) and shuttlecock probably originated more than 2000 years ago.

In the 1600s battledore and shuttlecock was an upper class pastime in England and many European countries. Battledore and shuttlecock was simply two people hitting a shuttlecock backwards and forwards with a simple bat as many times as they could without allowing it to hit the ground.

Modern badminton can be traced to mid-19th century British India. It was created by British military officers stationed there.  A net was added to the traditional English game of  battledore and shuttlecock.

Initially, woollen balls were preferred by the upper classes in windy or wet conditions, but ultimately shuttlecocks took over the role of a “ball.” This game was taken by retired officers who got back to England. It was introduced as a game for the guests of the Duke of Beaufort at his stately home ‘Badminton’ in Gloucestershire, England where it became popular. Hence, the origin of the name “Badminton.”

For many years there have been occasions of celebration (New Year’s Eve; Burns’ Night; etc.) and it has been sad that not many people have been aware of the traditional dances used on these occasions. This is your opportunity to develop skills – and muscles – that you never realised you had, whilst enjoying the social gathering that these classes will encourage. Take the opportunity to meet new people and learn just what fun you can have whilst learning the age-old dances of Scotland.

Don’t forget! every Monday from 2.00 to 4.00 at the FHK building.
