  • Badminton Shuttlecock Details - Feathers, Design, History

    Badminton is a racket sports played by either one opposing player (singles) or two opposing players (doubles). The main equipment for badminton is the badminton racket and the shuttlecock. A standard shuttlecock will consist of 16 feathers compressed into the shuttlecock head. Goose feather is one of the best quality shuttlecock. Shuttlecock length may varies around from 62mm to 70mm, and the weight is not exact and weigh around 4.74 grams to 5.50 grams.

    History of Badminton began 3000 years ago in ancient Greece and China. The present name, badminton got the estate of the Duke of Beaufort.
    The ball is heavy between 4.74 and 5.50 grams.The balls are made of white goose feathers, or of ​duck feathers. Since ball has 16 letters, for the production of 2 balls need feathers of three geese (6-7 specific feathers from 1 goose).

      In which of those two countries it was first played/originated, Greece or China?
      Interesting to know that it requires more than a goose to just provide the 16 feathers in one shuttlecock.
