Simple Description and Aim/Objective
Badminton has an original name of battledore. Originated by ancient civilization from Europe and Asia, it is an ancient game made approximately 2000 years ago Badminton is a net game, just like Tennis. The game consisted of 2 players to 4 players. Badminton can be played by all genders and people above 10 years old. Badminton are made up of 3 game modes such as single (1v1), double (2v2), or mixed (2v2). Each game mode is similar to each other, but they have different rules which will be explain later.
Location to play and net
Badminton is an indoor sport because of various (located on the right). Those factors are really important because they affect the way you play, learn, and feel. It is possible to play it outdoor, but there are consequences for doing so. It is preferred to be played in a building with almost no wind and have a smooth ground (for example wood tile). Furthermore, make sure that lights are not angle at the players because it will affect their vision.
Equipment
There are a few equipments that Badminton players need to have to be able to play. The purposes for these equipments are clear, but there is description below for each of the equipment. Pictures are provided as an example if you need to know how these equipments looks like. These equipments can be find and buy easily at Sport store.
Court
The court has a rectangle shape and consist of two sides. The court is divided by the net and lines which indicate the serving position, outer and inner court, and "out" territory. It is recommended to have yellow or white lines with 40 mm for its' width. Furthermore, use court with wood and asphalt material to give you better movement and to avoid injury. The diagram below will show the measurement and the purpose of each part of the court.
Single & Double
Badminton has a limit on the amount of players playing in a match. When playing, the gender of the players have to be the same in order for the match to be fair. It may sound a little sexist, but usually men and women have different physic and mentality. There are three ways/game mode for Badminton such as:
Single - a match where 2 players
(same gender)
play against each other (1 v 1).
Double - a match where 4 players
(same gender)
play in a group of 2 and play against one another (2 v 2).
Mixed - a match where 4 players
(mixed gender)
play in a group of 2 (male with female) and play against one another (2 v 2)

Those 3 game modes have the same basic and goal, but the rule has been tweak in order to make it fair and playable.
Score
In Badminton, a point is rewarded if the shuttlecock hit the floor. The original game point for a game is 21, but it may change. Also there are 3 matches in total, however the 3rd match will not be play if player(s) wins the first two game in a row. The person who reaches the 21st point win the match. However, if two of the players have 20 points each, then the game point will be increase by 1. It will keep increasing until it reaches 30, first to reach win.

There is also another way for a player to receive a point. There is "out" which means the shuttlecocks hit the floor, but beyond the available lines given. The person who hit the shuttlecock beyond the lines will not gain a point. Meanwhile, the point is rewarded to the person align with the shuttlecock.

Long Distance Shot
Description:
Short distance shot is one of the basic type of shots in Badminton.

Time to use:
It is usually use when the the opponent is on the back part of the court, but it is also use when the opponent is near the court.

Purpose:
Like it's name, it is use to let the player hit for a short distance.
Opponent far from net:
Short distance shot is use at this time because two purposes such as deplete your opponent's stamina and trick your opponent.
When your opponent is on the back of the court or far from the net, use short distance shot to let the shuttlecock to land near the net. This trick your opponent as your opponent expecting you to use long distance shot. By doing that, there is a chance for you to gain point and it will drain your opponent's stamina.
Opponent near the net:
Short distance shot is use at this time because three purpose such as tricking your opponent, gaining stamina, and straight duel.
The way to trick your opponent and deplete opponent's stamina is by keep using short distance shoots for a small period of time. Then when you are ready, use long distance shot to hit the back of the court or the corner. If your opponent is not ready at the time, you can gain a point or you can waste your opponent stamina.
The straight duel is basically when you and your opponent keep using short distance shots until one of you score or until one of you change your technique.

Description:
Long distance shot is one of the basic type of shots in Badminton.

Time to use:
It is usually use when the the opponent is on the back part of the court, but it is also use when the opponent is near the court.

Purpose:
Like it's name, it is use to let the player hit for a long distance.
Opponent far from net:
Long distance shot is use at this time for two purposes such as tricking your opponent and deplete your opponent's stamina.
The way to trick your opponent and deplete their stamina also is to make them play long distance shot with you for a short period of time. When you are ready, use the smash technique which may give you a point or it may get block, but your opponent will use some stamina to do so.
In order to only deplete your opponent's stamina, you do the same ways, but instead of using smash, you use short distance shot to let the shuttlecock land near the net.
Opponent near the net:
Long distance shot is use at this time for two purposes such as tricking your opponent and deplete your opponent's stamina.
This is the same as the one from the short distance shot guide. The way to trick your opponent and deplete opponent's stamina is by keep using short distance shoots for a small period of time. Then when you are ready, use long distance shot to hit the back of the court or the corner. If your opponent is not ready at the time, you can gain a point or you can waste your opponent stamina.
Description:
Grip is one of the most basic thing a player need to know. Grip is the position of your hand when holding a racket.

The aim/objective in Badminton is to hit the shuttlecock (known as shuttle) with a racket across the net to the opponent's court until the opponent can't reply the shot and the shuttlecock hit the floor. At the same time, you need to defend your own court by hitting or replying the shuttlecock that are going to you. This is going to be repeated for a specific number of scores and games and there is also a specific place that can't be hit. Furthermore, there are techniques which will help you. These information will be explain later.
Important factors to why Badminton is not recommended to play outdoor:

Wind
It may seems simple, but these are the best reason to not play outdoor:

Speed and Angle - Since the weight (recommended) of shuttlecock is 4-5 grams, it's easy for it to get push by the wind. This will effect how fast it will go and where it land after it is hit. Because of this, players usually have to adapt with the situation by changing the angle of their shots and amount of their power which is not easy to do.

Misleading - There will be less wind indoor which means you will learn Badminton the wrong way. Even though it is useful to know how to play with the wind, you need to know the core of Badminton first.

Motivation Down - After you keep practicing, but can't do it right, you may feel bad about yourself. This will lead to you having lower motivation to play Badminton properly. This may also make you stop learning how to play Badminton.

Net is a guide which show how high the shuttlecock have to across and limit how low the shuttlecock can go. It is not allowed for the shuttlecock to go across from the bottom of the net. It also separate the court so the two players know their territory and not go to the opponent's territory. It can be used as a weapon also by letting the shuttlecock hit the rubber and fall on the opponent's court. Preferred sizes are shown with diagrams.
Sun
The sun can affect the you in two ways such as blinding you, making you tired easily, and you may get sun burn.

Blinding - The sun really affect you outdoor in a country like Dubai. Sun shine will make it hard for you to see where the shuttlecock is going, especially when it is high above the air. It will make you and your opponent unable to reply the shuttlecock to each other.

More Tired - Since it is quite hot in Dubai, especially outside, it will make you sweat more. Even though it is good, it is also bad because you will not able to play at your full potential and you will not survive long enough to play until the last round. In Badminton, you have to keep moving and react fast to reply the shuttlecock which means you need to have a lot of stamina and having the heat on you is not helping.

Sun Burn - Some people may not like to get sun burn. Playing and practicing outdoor with the sun on you does not help you get away from getting sun burn.
Weather/Season
Weather and seasons can get in a way when playing outdoor. They may affect you directly or indirectly and these affect do not appear all the time when you are playing outdoor.


Seasons
Seasons - In a country with 4 seasons, winter and summer will most likely affect you while playing outdoor.

Summer: The temperature will affect you as you will tired more easily, especially when you have to keep moving all the time.

Winter: The low temperature will affect you as you will not be able to play outdoor for a long time with the equipment you have to wear and no heater at all around you. Furthermore, the snow may block the area or space you are going to play. It will take you some time to take out the snow away, but is it worth it?
Weather
Weathers - In a country with high temperature like Dubai and other middle-eastern countries, the temperature will affect you a lot. The same thing goes to countries with high chance of rain like Singapore and other countries around the world.

High temperature/heat: Like usual, if you play outdoor with high temperature, you will go tired faster than usual.

Rain: Depending on the amount of rains, it can affect you in two ways. The first one is rain has a chance of producing floods in some countries which may take out the place/area where you are going to play. The second one is rain may have a chance to give you sickness like flue if you stay out for too long.

Racket and String
Shuttlecock
Net and Post
Accessories
Badminton racket is the equipment you use to hit the shuttlecock. There is a special string at middle of the head and it is the part you use to hit. Good strings should be able to give you good springiness, comfortable for you, and control over your shot. There are small and big racket that are intended for different people. Picture of a Badminton racket is located below.
There are 3 Badminton accessories that you have to have in order to play Badminton. The 3 accessories are T-shirt, short, and shoes. The clothes are used to cover your body, while the shoes are used to make you more agile on the court. These items are made from many different companies, but they are quite similar. However, you don't need to buy sport T-shirt and short in order to play Badminton, just use what you have. Pictures of these items are located below.
Shuttlecock is a the item that you hit with the racket. It is shaped like a cone with an open bottom layer. It is made of around 16 goose/duck feathers for the side part and leather for its' head. When playing, have a backup shuttlecock because some shuttlecock do not last long. Different companies make shuttlecock, but they are quite similar. Picture of a shuttlecock is located below.
Net are made out of various type of materials such as nylon, polyethylene, and vinyl. The net has many parts such as:
the tape (top/upper part) - to hold the fibers together
the fibers (the bottom part/main part) - to block shuttlecock
cables or cord (upper side) - to tie the net with posts.
Posts are the things that you use to tie the net with and it make sure that the net is high enough. It's usually made of heavy gauge steel.

When buying, try to find a proper (correct size, height, width, and length) set of net and posts. It is recommended for beginners players because the maker already tie both of them together with the right length and height. This should decrease errors that you may do when trying to set up the net and posts. Furthermore, it require lest time to set up since you just need to pull them apart until its' maximum. Pictures of net and posts are located below.
Single
Double
There are 2 special rule for single game mode such as court and serve.

Court:
When playing single, the available space you have to play is from the outer back line to the inner side line. Players can only play and score within those lines and there will be consequence if the shuttlecock goes beyond those lines. To make it simpler, the space you have for single is "tall and thin".

Serve:
When playing single, the two players must not face to face another, but one of them have to stand either on the right or left side of the court. Basically, the player who has to serve have to do a cross serve.

The picture below show an example of single game mode.
There are 2 special rule for double (including mixed) game mode such as court and serve.

Court:
When playing double, the available space you have is from the inner back line and outer side line. Players can only play within those lines and there will be consequence if the shuttlecock goes beyond those lines. To make it simpler, the space you have for double is "fat and short".

Serve:
When playing double, players will face each other, but the player who serve must not face to face the person he/she going to serve to. Similar to single, players must do a cross serve.

The pictures below show example of double game mode.
