The English dukes of
Beaufort probably played this game
at their country estate named Badminton. The game
supposedly originated in 1873. The game of Badminton
most likely emerged from an old
children's game called
battledore and shuttlecock. The game of Badminton was
first to become
very popular when played out-of-doors
by army officials in India. MORE!
