How many people play badminton around the world
BADMINTON AND OLYMPIA
Long start-up time: from the 1972 demonstration competition in Munich, it took 20 years before the sport was included in the 1992 Olympic program in Barcelona.
DANES AND ASIAN
Although the sporting origins are rooted in England, Denmark is the country with the greatest success in badminton. Only the Danes themselves know why the sport is so popular here of all places. What is known is that they declared badminton to be their national winter sport at the beginning of the 20th century. The explanation for the great popularity in the Asian countries such as China, Indonesia, Thailand, India and Korea, where the sport is given the same importance as football is easier to explain.
GERMANY AND ITS BADMINTON HISTORY
Although the first club was founded in Bad Homburg as early as 1902, the badminton sport quickly came to an abrupt end due to a lack of clubs and balls. Badminton only made its comeback after World War II in the 1950s, with the establishment of a national association. Interestingly, its first president was the Bonn industrialist Hans Riegel, who also had the first badminton hall built, which bore his company's name, Haribo-Center. Over 200,000 club members are compared to around 4.5 million recreational players in Germany, which also has an effect on rather moderate success in international comparisons.
THE RISK OF INJURY WITH BADMINTON
To get to the point: there is almost none. Which does not mean that injuries can be ruled out. However, with an accident rate of 1.09%, badminton is way behind most other sports, such as soccer, which has a rate of almost 4%. The most common injuries can be abrasions from falls, or strain injuries to the shoulder, knee, ankle or wrist. In addition, the so-called tennis elbow is also observed as a result of incorrect hitting or a racket that is too stiff in badminton.
