Badminton 6 week training program The invention of Badminton originates back to at least two thousand years ago, where it was a combination of the games battledore and shuttlecock played in ancient Greece, India, and China. "It is known that around 1860, the daughters of the Duke of Beutfort were playing Battledore and Shuttlecock in the great hall of Badminton house, the seat of the Somerset family in Gloucestershire, England. To add a little variety, they rigged up a string across the hall from the doorway to the fireplace and the aim of the game was to try to keep the shuttle going by playing it to each other over the string.

Before you can get started you need the following utensils. * field * net * racket * shuttlecocks Field: The size of the field depends on whether you play single or double.

From the results I can show you the outcome. Evaluation In these last few weeks, I have learned that anything can be learned. I thought that the teaching of skill improvement was going to be impossible. As I have learned the sheer determination and the enthusiasm of the participating performer is greatly needed. The six week program was a success. If I were to carry out the 6 week training program, I would definitely carry out more harder therefore challenging tasks to test the performer to the limit. I would keep a tight schedule to the food intake of the person aswell as the daily exercises. I felt during the six week training although it improved Ahsan overall, smash, there were the slight sense of miss -leading to the other areas of badminton such as the backhand. In conclusion, I am happy, with my results and hope for future improvements. ...read more.
