ActiveSG Badminton Academy
Did you know the speed and power of Badminton? With the shuttlecock speed going as fast as 408km per hour, Badminton is officially the world’s fastest racket sport.
AirBadminton is an ambitious new development project in partnership with HSBC, BWF’s Global Development Partner, designed to create opportunities for people of all ages and ability to play badminton on hard, grass and sand surfaces in parks, gardens, streets, playgrounds, and beaches around the world.
The project has been five years in the making, starting with a vision to develop a new outdoor shuttlecock with increased durability, stability and wind resistance to allow people to have a more positive experience of badminton outdoors. This project has developed a special shuttlecock, called the Airshuttle, and it can withstand with speed of up to 12km/h. The overall aim of the Airbadminton is to inspire more people to play more badminton in more places.
For more information regarding Airbadminton, you can visit BWF's website here.
