2001 in Berlin's Kreuzberg district, the first players gathered which were thrilled by a faster and more windstable Badminton game. Some of them founded a small company, the Speedminton GmbH, which managed to transfer the idea to an entirely new sport - Speed Badminton - and to develop the appropriate products for this sport within only five years. Speedminton® began marketing their first game sets in 2005 and have continued to grow since. At the 01.01.2016 the official designation of the sport has been renamed in Crossminton.
By partnering with the ICO and top ranked athletes, this gave Speedminton® an opportunity to improve the quality of their equipment.
