A great sport for fitness, Badminton is well suited for people of all ages and provides a great choice for those wanting to give a new racquet sport a go. Badminton is officially the fastest of all racquet sports. Players can hit the shuttlecock at speeds of up to 493 km/h towards their opponent. However, it is not just all about speed; a player can expect to run upward of four miles (6.4km) around the court during a match, whilst having the agility to maintain energy-busting rallies. In our School we have 4 wooden Badminton Courts equipped for training and hosting tournaments. Under the guidance of our qualified coach Mr. Prakash and Dr. Raji Philip who is the Director of Physical Education, our pupils have participated in many District, State, IPSC & National tournaments and brought laurels to the school.
