Badminton as a sport can be traced to various regions such as ancient Greece, China and India. The modern version of the sport originated during the mid-19th century in India after it evolved from an earlier style of the game called Poona. British Army officers eventually transported it to England and the name of the sport came to be from Badminton House where it made its debut back in 1873. For the last few years, India has reemerged as a dominant force in badminton at a global stage. Indian players have done really well in tournaments such as World Championships, BWF World Tours, Thomas Cup, Uber Cup, All England Open and others.
