Racket

Shuttlecock
A piece of cork covered in goat skin with 16 goose feathers attached to one end. It can be made from natural or synthetic materials. Badminton is a racquet sport played by either two opposing players (singles) or two opposing pairs (doubles), who take positions on opposite halves of a rectangular court that is divided by a net. Players score points by striking a shuttlecock with their racquet so that it passes over the net and lands in their opponents' half of the court. A rally ends once the shuttlecock has struck the ground, and the shuttlecock may only be struck once by each side before it passes over the net.The shuttlecock (or shuttle) is a feathered projectile whose unique aerodynamic properties cause it to fly differently from the balls used in most racquet sports; in particular, the feathers create much higher drag, causing the shuttlecock to decelerate more rapidly than a ball. Shuttlecocks have a much higher top speed, when compared to other racquet sports. Because shuttlecock flight is stubbornly affected by wind, competitive badminton is always played indoors. Badminton is also played outdoors as a casual recreational activity, often as a garden or beach game.Since 1992, badminton has been an Olympic sport with five events: men's and women's singles, men's and women's doubles, and mixed doubles, in which each pair is a man and a woman. At high levels of play, the sport demands excellent fitness: players require aerobic stamina, agility, strength, speed, and precision. It is also a technical sport, requiring good motor coordination and the development of

    specifically Arnis players. However, there are still some optimistic Filipinos like me who believe Arnis players in general deserve equal attention as the other athletes because they are also talented and versatile, and Arnis in itself is a very interesting sport to be left in the shadows. Sadly, most Filipinos are not even aware that Arnis is the National Martial Art of the Philippines. Somehow this sport is ignored and perhaps most Filipinos fail to recall it, and even the players of Arnis have been…
