Speed badminton (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Speed badminton, also known as speedminton, is a badminton variant without a net. Speed Badminton is a new racket game which combines elements from different sports like badminton, squash and tennis. Today, Speed Badminton is played all around the world. There is no net in between and no prescribed playground, so it can be executed on tennis courts, streets, beaches, fields or gyms. The court consists of two squares of 5.50m (18ft) length. They are fixed opposite to each other at a distance of 12.8m (42ft). Currently, there are tournaments all over the world which are organized in a growing number of clubs. In some countries, associations are already established, for example the German Speed Badminton Association (DSBV) and the Swiss Speed Badminton (SSB). On August 25, 2011 the international Speed Badminton Organization (ISBO) was founded in Berlin.
