It’s a special week for Badminton Unlimited as we celebrate our 300th episode. To mark the occasion we look back at the origins of our favorite sport!
In particular, we trace badminton’s roots back to India and the Poona Club and speak to Indian legends Nandu Natekar and Prakesh Padukone.
We also look at where badminton got its name and the significance of Badminton House.
Finally, we explore how badminton has become to be the sport it is today with the creation of Badminton Associations around the world.
Badminton in the early days.
