Details: The Athletic Club of Overland Park offers a wide variety of sports from the games you played in grade school like volleyball and basketball, to other less traditional choices like racquetball, handball, squash, table tennis, and badminton. Actually in the case of badminton, maybe the proper phrase would be “more traditional.” Although it has only been an Olympic sport since 1992, Badminton can be traced all the way back to mid-18th century India where its ancestor (a game called Battledore and Shuttlecock) was played by the British military families. When the military officers retired they took the sport back to England, where the rules were refined and it was eventually given its name by the Duke of Beaufort of the Badminton House. Badminton is one of the most popular sports in the world, second only to soccer. Badminton in Kansas is also extremely popular. In fact badminton in Kansas City plays an important role in history: 48 times larger that in real thing at 18 feet tall and 5,500 pounds, the badminton shuttle the lawn of the Nelson art museum is the largest one in history.
