I have no arthiritis. The ankle only swells up immediately after the pain. I have played competitive badminton for 40 years.

It is looking like that you got tendonitis due to trauma to tendons while playing.However do simple things like applying ice to area.Taking a pain killer like Ibuprofen three tmes a day.Giving rest to area.
Other option is that problem happened in alignmenet of bones of ankle.Which needs to be correcetd by a Chiropractor.However wait 5 days if problem persist then you need to show it to an orthpedic doctor or a chiropractor.
