The racquets and shuttles are out. The Nets are set up and the gym floor is lined with white tape marking the boundaries for the 8 courts that we have in the gym. The students in grades 5th through 8th are improving their skills and knowledge related to the wonderful game of badminton. Each grade level will be involved in a doubles tournament which culminates in the victors from each class competing for the golden shuttle during spirit week.

Some interesting badminton facts:
1-A shuttle has been recorded traveling at 206 mph.
2-After soccer, badminton is the 2nd most popular participation sport in the world.
3-A top badminton player travels over a mile per game.
