    These are called muscle cramps. The lack of electrolytes (essentially salts) and water circulating within your muscle tissues is what causes them. I don't remember 100% how it biologically works but I can tell you that stiff muscles + dehydration + lack of electrolytes = a recipe for muscle cramps. Just make sure you drink enough water or sports drinks while and before playing badminton. Warm-up and stretching is also extremely important.
