    Badminton is fast and dynamic, and more than half a million people every week play it in the UK in sports halls, or at schools, leisure centres or social clubs.

    Physically, it can be an energetic or light workout. Either way, your body will be leaping, lunging, twisting, turning and stretching.

    You can just book one of the 22,000 leisure centre badminton courts with a friend and go for a few rallies or take the step to joining a club that will cater for social and competitive players of all ages.
