About Team Seattle Badminton
We are in the first stages of introducing Badminton to the LGBT community in Seattle. Many men and women are playing independently. Would you like to join a group of men and women that play badminton?
Contact Richard R. for more information to play badminton in Seattle.
The shuttlecock (or shuttle) is a feathered projectile whose unique aerodynamic properties cause it to fly differently from the balls used in most racquet sports; in particular, the feathers create much higher drag, causing the shuttlecock to decelerate more rapidly than a ball. Shuttlecocks have a much higher top speed, when compared to other racquet sports. Because shuttlecock flight is stubbornly affected by wind, competitive badminton is always played indoors. Badminton is also played outdoors as a casual recreational activity, often as a garden or beach game.
