It's very clear Badminton has always been destined to be an Indoor sport due to it's nature of
having a light ball such as a shuttlecock weighing about 5g and even so, playing in an AC or
draughty hall, can cause problems during tournaments!!
In fact, after it's invention playing outdoors, modifications were made to make the original
shuttlecock heavier with leather which caused other problems like racket gut string breakages
and shots going too long. Courts were lengthened, shuttlecock became ball shaped, rackets
because sturdier giving rise to a new sport 'TENNIS'. So, playing badminton outdoors was
literally abandoned to the professional game in halls.
We still see courageous players playing at seasides, camping sites and recreation areas including
gardens and without total wind it's the finest experience a player can have but it's not possible
to the majority as just a small breeze can ruin any shot and satisfaction in playing.
