Badminton is great, it provides an environment for fun, fitness, social interaction and competition. The Bisi Programme (Badminton into Schools Initiative) is endorsed by BADMINTON England and offers that first step to progress from beginning to medal winner.
SmashUp! is BADMINTON England’s perception changing, innovative youth badminton initiative, aimed at inspiring 13-16 year olds of all sporting ability to swing a racket for fun.
Shuttles are usually graded according to speed. If you have reached a certain level and can hit from baseline to baseline, use MEDIUM speed shuttlecocks. If your strength is not there yet, you can use FAST speed shuttlecocks. A shuttle’s travel is affected by the weather, altitude and temperature. When it is hot, the shuttle will fly faster, so use a MEDIUM speed. When it is cold, the shuttle will move slower, so use a FAST speed.
