Badminton demands physical fitness, mental well-being and increase in stamina. It happens to be the fastest racket sport in the world. Yes, faster than tennis, squash, table tennis and golf (we do mean the ball speed!) Besides, the fast pace of badminton goes with extreme intensity, looking at the percentage of time played in a rally. It’s even twice as intense as tennis in terms of gameplay! This makes badminton both exciting to play and watch. Beside fitness, players need to stay constantly aware and ready for the next shot. A sport that matches the core of Nightwatch: Extreme Energy for Focus & Power!
