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.
