The History section comprises of 3 topics – ‘Events’, ‘People’ and ‘Development’. In the ‘Events’ section are articles ranging from the First All-England to the First Professional Open Tournament. ‘People’ section at the moment, profiles of some of the great All-England Champions.
In the ‘Development’ section the topics are about early parts of the game of badminton. In the ‘News’ section of the website there are articles like: - ‘The 1924 Birmal aluminium racket with steel strings’ and ‘The shuttlecock that travelled 70 million miles before landing on the ground’.
