Tennis elbow can turn into something very serious if it's not treated properly. You should see a medical professional (doctor, physiotherapist, ...)
If possible, take a few weeks off badminton and let your arm rest. I know that's the last thing you want to hear. But if you don't rest and let your arm recover properly, this condition can stick around for months or years.
Ice will help a little, ten minutes a couple of times a day. There are stretches you can do, and medications that will sometimes help. Ask your doctor.

If there is already pain, I think you shouldn't massage it. It will get worse. Find a doctor but abstain from any massaging.

If pain is occurring before or at the very start of exercise, you need to rest as damage has occurred and inflammation is present. A sports physio or doctor will likely first suggest resting the injury ....this means rest not play a little bit less. After the main inflammation and pain has reduced over time you re start playing however it may return. Not any miracle cures (massage etc may help in the short term) however things to look at. 1. Correct warm up n cool down can reduce damage to the playing joints. 2. Your technique on high speed overheads could be causing some of the problems. 3. Long term strengthing and conditioning of the forearm and upper arm will be required if you really want to get rid of tennis elbow and your very active (this is why top players don't suffer this often.) 4. Chronic long term sufferers can receive cortisone as a pain killer, however this isn't always effective and will hide any further damage you may be doing.

Hi there bro .....
I used to have the same problem some time back too from playing too much badminton.
I've also tried rubbing medicated oil and various creams, but they didn't work either.
Then, i think came across a post in BC regarding stretching exercises to relieve 'Tennis Elbow' pain.
I can't remember where the post is, but i did save the link to the website. (below)
The site is in either German or Dutch, but you can select English in the 'Home' page.
I've also included a condensed pictorial of the stretching exercise for your convenience.
Just give it try ..... it worked for me !

Warm up the muscles before play, I don't mean hitting shuttles. I mean stretching exercise with n without rackets.This will minimise tendon n muscular injuries.

The stretch this man does above is good but also stretch the arm the other by by extending the hand the other way
This stretch below is another form of it.
Also you need to strengthen the forearm using ecentric exercises
But now rest it, ice it and massage will help!!! Cross fibre massage will be good where you massage across the bellt of the muscle. Instead of massage up and down the forearm from hand to elbow. Massage with your thumb across the top of the muscle belly from left to right. Use a bit of massage oil or cream but not too much. Doing this 10 mins every other day will help a lot.

Along with stretching before I play, I wear a tennis elbow brace.
