Transcript of Rules of Badminton

When the game starts a toss should be conducted. If you win, you can choose between serving first or to play at either end of the court.
What is Badminton?
Scoring system
Rules of Badminton
When a side scores a point, if they have a odd point such as (1,3,5,7,9,11, etc) they should serve from the left hand side. If they win a point they carry on serving, when they lose the point and the serve comes back to them the other person should serve. If you have an even point such as (2,4,6,8,10 etc) they should serve from the right hand side.
To win a game a team (doubles) or a player (singles) must reach 21 points, however you need two clear points in between to win. So if the score is 20-20 then 21 points is not in enough to win a game, but if you have 30-29, you have won the game. The game moves on to 30 points which is the upper limit and then you can not go over this.
Badminton is a racquet sport played by either two different players (singles) or two different pairs (doubles), who take position on opposite halves of a rectangular court divided by a net. Players score points by hitting the shuttlecock with their racquet so that it goes over the net and lands in their opponents' half of the court. Each side may only hit the shuttlecock once before it passes over the net. A rally ends once the shuttlecock has struck the floor, or if a fault has been called by either the umpire or service judge.
The posts hold the net. Both side of the court must be 5 feet tall and must stay straight after stringing the net. The net must tie to the net posts so no gap appears between the net and the post.
The outside dimensions of the court must be 20 feet wide by 44 feet long and should be marked clearly. A center line must divide the court evenly lengthwise. The marked line at the end of the court serves as the singles long service line and the line in is the doubles long service line. When playing singles the court is long and thin and for doubles the lines are short and fat. A short service line must be marked across both sides of the court, 6.5 feet from the net.
A Badminton racket should have a handle, which connects
to the shaft, which then leads to the throat and head of the racket. The head has synthetic string. The head is no bigger then 280mm in length and 220 mm in width. The total length of the racket should be 680 mm length and the total width should be 230 mm. The weight of the racket frame should be between 80 and 100g

The shuttlecock can be made by natural
or synthetic materials. The base (cork tip) is made from rubber or leather and is between 25 and 28 mm in diameter. The feather crown
is made form 16 real synthetic feathers. It
should be 62 to 70 mm in length. The shuttle must weigh between 4.74 and 5.50g.
The badminton net can be natural or
synthetic. The net should be no longer than 20 mm.
The dimensions of the net must be 2.5 feet tall and 20 feet wide. A 3 inch white string should be tied in a figure of eight on the edge of the post. The top of the net must be 5 feet from the ground.


Change of ends
The rules of badminton says that you have to change ends with your opponent after finishing the first game.
The player should not touch the net, with his/her racquet or body at no point during the game.
The shuttlecock should always be in the air and never be carried or rested on the racquet.
A player should not reach over the net to hit the shuttlecock.
For a serve to be valid it must carry across the court diagonally.
A point is added to a player's score when he/she hits the shuttlecock and it approaches the floor of the opponent's side
When a player has scored an even number of points, they should serve from and receive in the right service court.
When a player has scored an odd number of points, they should serve from and receive in the left service court.
The player and the opponent should carry on playing until a fault has been called.
When your opponent makes a fault you score a point and serve again from the other service court.
A side should carry out a serve form the right service court, the opponent diagonally facing you will return the service.
Once the service is returned, you or your partner can hit the shuttlecock back, then either player from the opposite side will do the same and carry on until a fault has been announced.
When a player has scored an even number of points, they should serve from and receive in the right service court.
When a player has scored an odd number of points, they should serve from and receive in the left service court.
