The two paintings, Battledore and Shuttlecock, were commissioned by James Leathart of Newcastle upon Tyne in 1869 and were completed in September 1870. In 1871-2 Moore became engaged upon a single larger composition, Battledore and Shuttlecock known by a large study now in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum. The present whereabouts of the finished painting is unknown and it is possible it was never completed. Moore made many studies for these paintings; both nude and draped chalk compositional drawings and small oil sketches experimenting in colour themes. In his intention to show the players paused between periods of play he set his models to play battledore and shuttlecock in his studio so that he could make authentic studies of their poses.
