India played a vital role in the development of this game. This was through the introduction of another game that was similar to “ti jian zi” called Battle and Shuttlecock that was played in China, India, Japan and Greece. The game was played in India during the 18th Century, at which time it was called "Poona" . In the 1860s it was adopted by British Army officers stationed in India.

The bat was then referred to as “Battledore”. Battledore and shuttlecock was a rather simple outdoor game. Both players were just required to keep the shuttlecock in the air as long as possible, preventing it from touching the ground. The British government officials who were posted to India during those years took the game to their homes in 1873.
