Often on our shelves, but if we're temporarily out, we can get back in!


This vintage book contains a detailed account of the history of badminton, from its conception in the late nineteenth century to 1949. Badminton is a racket sport whereby a shuttlecock is hit back and forth across a net. Although larger teams are possible, it is most commonly played in "singles" (with one player per side) and "doubles" (with two players per side). This interesting volume explores its origins in India and follows its subsequent development and evolution, with reference to notable events, figures, and organisations. "A Brief History of Badminton" constitutes a must-read for those with an interest in the sport, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of allied literature. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on badminton.
