Entry 8- My Favourite Game

Badminton is my favourite sport.  It is the fastest racket game in the world. It is played with rackets and a shuttlecock.  The shuttlecock is made from goose feathers pushed into a small  piece of cork.  The smash of the shuttlecock can travel up to 260km per hour.

The court on which badminton is played is in the shape of a rectangle and is divided in half by a net. When there are only two players, one on each side of the net, it is a singles game.  Badminton takes its name from the home of the Duke of Beaufort, Badminton House in Gloucestershire, England where the first game of badminton was played.

I love badminton because it is good exercise and a lot of my friends play.  I play a lots of competitions with my friend Fitri Azeera.
