Badminton
The sport of badminton was invented years ago played in ancient Greece and Egypt. Badminton came from a child's game called battledore and shuttlecock, in which two players hit a feathered shuttlecock back and forth with tiny rackets there was no net--the object was simply to keep the shuttlecock from hitting the ground. The game was called "poona" in India during the 18th Century, and British Army Officers stationed there took the Indian version back to England in the 1860's. Battledore and Shuttlecock was further developed into the sport now know as badminton this was the first time a net was used. The army men introduced the game to friends, but the new sport was definitely launched there at a party given in 1873 by the Duke of Beaufort at his country place, "Badminton" in Gloucestershire. Before long a badminton association was established and rules similar to the current badminton rules were introduced. Guildford hosted the very first open English tournament in 1898 and it only took one more year before the first All England Championships were held. From there badminton spread to other countries and by the 1930s the game was also being played in Canada, the United States and Denmark. Badminton has different rules for men and women. The men traditionally play a game to a total of 15 points. Should both players be tied at 13 points, the first to reach that number can choose to add five points to the game, with whoever reaches 18 first being the winner. Should a tie develop at 14-14, the game can be extended by 3 points or end at 15 points. For women, the traditional games are shorter, ending at 11 points. The rules allow women to decide to add 3 points should a game be tied at 10, or end it at 11 points. The classic rules also differ in determining who can score a point - only the server can score. In addition, players change sides of the court after each game or when the scores reaches 8 in
