    Hi!

    I've heard about new kind of Badminton - Beach Badminton. Has anybody got any info about it? I'd like to take part in some european tournament of Beach Badminton. So I'll be very grateful for any info about rules and calendar for 2013.
    Thanks in advance!

    I don't think it is an official sport yet, only organized for fun with the same rules as normal badminton. Only maybe smaller courts but no rules for it ...

    But unfortunately, I don't speak italian, so it's a secret for me what President of Italian Badminton Federation is speaking about :)

    I think it was more to promote normal badminton but yes there are beach badminton tournaments organized here and there. I just don't think there is a regular circuit or even fixed rules for the court dimensions yet ... (or if there ever should be :D)
