Get Inspired: Gail Emms on badminton

Badminton is a fast and exciting sport, where shuttlecock smashes can reach speeds of more than 200mph.

Olympic mixed doubles silver medallist Gail Emms is one of Great Britain's most successful players, and she told BBC Sport how following in her mum's footsteps at Bedford & County Badminton Club led her to glory in Athens.

For those looking to get involved themselves, Badminton equipment can be relatively inexpensive to buy, with some sport centres and clubs also offering a rental service.
