Speedminton’s unique format evolved from a desire to play shuttle sports outdoors. Whilst official Speedminton match courts are 12 metres apart, shifting racket sport learning to the school oval lifted constraints from students developing the fundamental striking movement. 
Students have the space and time to learn how to hit and to swing a racket with effect, at their own pace. Eliminating the fear of error or point loss, instils a freedom of movement. Spreading from a court to open spaces invites imaginative game creation and skill challenges, for both individuals and groups. It is particularly effective with junior students, where the mechanics of setting up drills becomes simpler, safer and achieves high levels of participation. Combined with the user-friendly nature of the equipment, this free-style play has produced outstanding racket sport outcomes in over 3500 Australian schools. Speedminton delivers a safe, compliant and easily supervised racket sport activity, with games and drills for all age, skill and enthusiasm levels. Contact
