History of Shuttlecock Sport

Jianzi (chin.: Jiànzi 毽子), Ti Jianzi (chin.: tījiànzi 踢毽子) or Jianqiu (chin.: jiànqiú 毽球) is a traditional Asian game in which players aim to keep a heavily weighted shuttlecock in the air using their feet and other parts of the body (but not hands, unlike the similar games peteca and indiaca).
