Badminton is a 2000 year old sport originating from ancient civilizations in Europe and Asia.It was earlier known as battledore (meaning bat or paddle) and shuttlecock.
During the 1600s it was predominantly an upper class sport played largely in England and other European countries.  Battledore and shuttlecock was a two player sport where each player had a battledore and they kept hitting the shuttlecock back and forth as many times as they could without the shuttle cock hitting the ground.
