What is Speedminton®?
Speedminton® is a combination of tennis, badminton, and squash. It is played without a net which allows you to play everywhere (beach, park, street, backyard, even in water!) and due to the Night Speeder™ day and night! It is very easy to set up and takes only five minutes. You can play in singles, doubles or freestyle!
What is so special about the birdies?
The Speeder™ (name of our birdies) is designed for indoor and outdoor play. It was designed shorter, heavier, and narrower than the shuttlecocks used in traditional badminton. It flies stable in wind, is water resistant and can even glow in the dark if loaded with a Speedlight. All Speeder are manufactured in Germany.
Can anyone play?
Yes! Speedminton® is very easy to learn and within a few hits, you’ll get the hang of it and be rallying in no time!
Is it a game or a sport?
It’s both! Recreationally, it’s played on the beach, the backyard, in a park, a parking lot, any large flat outdoor space; competitively, there are rules and an easy to set up official court.
Can I compete? Where can I find tournaments?
The competitive play is organized internationally by the International Crossminton Association (ICO). You can find all information on their website: www.crossminton.org.
Are all Speeders the same?
No! There are 4 kinds: The Fun Speeder™, for novice, young or other players who prefer a more controlled play on shorter distance; Match Speeder™, the official competition Speeder™ for playing at speeds up to 290 km/h (180 mph); Night Speeder™, the one with the translucent tip, glows in the dark for night play when a Speedlight is inserted; and lastly; The Cross Speeder™, which is for windier playing conditions. Here is more detailed information on our speeders.
How do I put the courts down?
Our Easy Courts come with stainless steel pegs to adhere the court to soft surfaces like grass or sand. If you are playing on a harder surface, tape works perfectly to secure the court or you can even draw the courts with chalk!
