Hyderabad is known for Badminton besides Bangles, Biryani, Bahubali and many other things. Badminton is the best and easiest sport that can be be played in any open space just with a racket, she said
Unlike many racquet sports, badminton uses feathered shuttlecock. Badminton is a non-contact sport, making it a lot safer than most contact sports. And can be played indoors. It is a swift game and a lot of calories can be burnt. That is why we chose this sport for Heath and Fitness Drive. And what is more exciting is an opportunity to meet, greet and interact with PV Sindhu motivates many participate and excel, said Ms Shubhraa
