Badminton is a small indoor sport made of feathers and cork, played with a long handled mesh ball across the net. Badminton matches are held on a rectangular field with a net between the two sides. Both sides use various techniques and tactics such as serving, hitting, and moving to and from the net to hit the ball back and forth, in order to prevent the ball from falling within their own effective area or causing the opponent to make a mistake in hitting the ball. 
There are many theories about the origin of badminton, but the most recognized one is that it originated in Japan from the 14th to 15th centuries. And modern badminton originated in India and formed in England. In 1875, badminton officially emerged in people's sight.
