Shuttlecocks are small, dense and usually travel at high speed in close proximity to players. According to research in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, in countries where badminton is widely played, doubles players are especially at risk for eye injuries.

There is no regulation on eye protection from Badminton South Africa. The Wanderers Club advocates safety and recommends the wearing of protective eyewear as a basic precautionary measure to be taken.

 

Protective eyewear is reasonably priced and can be obtained from sportswear stores, usually in the “squash accessories” section.

 

Enjoy the game!
