Get ready to rally! Badminton is a racquet sport that can be played by either two people (singles) or four people (doubles). Unlike other racquet sports, such as tennis or squash, badminton involves hitting a shuttlecock – a cone-shaped projectile that moves differently than a ball - making badminton the ideal sport for those who like to be kept on their toes. In addition to speed and stamina, good motor coordination is a must if you want to be able to master key racquet techniques.
Ross Irwin, a native of Scotland, grew up playing competitive badminton at a very young age with several club teams in Glasgow, Scotland. He advanced to be an alternate for the U18 Mixed Doubles National Team. He has continued to play and coach this lifelong sport through his adult life and as a resident of Franklin for the past 24 years. He is excited to see this recent surge of interest in this exciting Olympic sport.
