What is the age limit for badminton?
Many adults at clubs can be seen playing badminton. Also, many aged and senior citizens can be seen playing badminton at the age of 50-60 years old. Unless and until a person wants to become a world-class shuttler, there is no defined age limit or fitness level; as a result, anyone can play badminton at any age.
According to the official Olympics website, there is no age limit for those wanting to compete. Under rule 42, it states: “There may be no age limit for competitors in the Olympic Games other than as prescribed in the competition rules of an IF as approved by the IOC Executive Board.”
The obvious question that comes to the mind of people is whether it makes sense to start playing the game late. The answer is yes. It would be wrong to suggest that late players of the game will not be able to make much of the headway.
