Badminton has been identified as a lifelong activity. It is an inexpensive sport and everyone--children, seniors, and individuals with disabilities--can reach a level of enjoyment in the game after mastering basic skills and tactics. In teaching badminton, teachers need to understand how students develop game play ability from a low level to an advanced level. To help students develop competency in badminton, teachers must be able to develop movement tasks that match students' skill levels. After identifying performance characteristics of the students at different skill levels, teachers need to design movement tasks appropriate to students at different learning stages. In this article, performance characteristics of badminton at four different levels are presented and then followed by instructional strategies and drills proposed for students at each skill level.
