    I think I just end up doing slow high clears at each other as we get tired....I dont' really warm down that much, but essentially you want to slow down the pace of stuff so your body gets a smooth transition from playing badminton to your rest state.

    Its most important that you run through your entire body stretching excersises. Helps prevent injury and soreness. If you have worked hard enough you are always going to feel the pain.
    But make sure you have a good stretch session at the end of each training session.
