Badminton was first played in Ancient Greece and Egypt when players hit an early version of the shuttlecock, made of bird’s feathers, with a racquet. The sport of Badminton was played in the Olympic Games for the first time in 1992, when Barcelona was the host city, after being a demonstration sport in Munich, Germany in 1972. Initially men’s and women’s singles and doubles were introduced.  In Atlanta in 1996, a mixed doubles event was included, this is the only mixed doubles event in all of the Olympic sports.

The Trinidad and Tobago Badminton Association (TTBA) is the local body responsible for the badminton.
