I have to admit that I have not played badminton since junior high school PE. Our gym teacher was determined to teach us girls some basics of a handful of sports including football stating that if we knew something about more sports our future boyfriends would be impressed. I didn’t learn anything about football but my husband could care less about the sport so I still won out in the end, lol.
Summer is a great time to learn a new sport like badminton. It’s a great addition to any list of kids activities for Summer. Add in an uncle or two and the game is even more fun.
This was Princess and Eldest’s first time playing badminton. We were out at my parents house in a mowed field which yielded plenty of space for the game of badminton.
I believe the score was kept but the main goal over fourth of July was to just have some fun.
I actually purchased a badminton set last year on clearance but have not put it up at our house. I was waiting for a homeschool family cookout or a when I know there will be enough people to play.

No kidding, badminton is one of my favorite outdoor games! I wish we had a net set up, I’d play with my kiddos today! Well, maybe not today, it’s hot here in TN. 😉
Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

Badminton is a great game to play with our kids and family. My kids liked to play badminton right from the first day.
