Badminton Overview

The history of badminton is very obscure.  It is known that a version of the sport, using a racquet and shuttlecock go back centuries.  The modern game was developed in the 19th century.  Badminton has been an Olympic sport since 1992. 

In Minneapolis, Badminton was one of the activities girls could participate in through the Girls Athletic Association, which was more of an intermural activity instead of an interscholastic sport.

Beginning in the 1969-1970 school year, a few years before Title IX, Badminton, through the GAA, became in interscholastic sport.
