Looking like Tron picked up a racket, Blackminton is a faster, nighttime version of badminton where players covered in fluorescent paint hit a glow–in–the dark shuttlecock on black–lit courts. The sport is a spin–off of Speedminton©, which combines elements of tennis, badminton and squash, and was created in Berlin in 2002 to combat the stuffy image the original, slower game had. Now they've upped the stakes. Blackminton players might resemble refugees from an '80s rave, but as you can see in this video, it looks like a laugh to play.
