(Lugoff, South Carolina )Question: How do you play badminton?
Hi Bobby, thanks for the question.
We’re happy to hear someone interested in the sport.
In badminton, you can play a singles game or doubles game.
Badminton requires at least 2 players to play a singles game, or 4 players to play a doubles game.
The picture below shows you the boundaries of a badminton court.
The black line in the middle represents the badminton net.
Objective of the Game
The objective of the game is to hit the shuttlecock over to the other side of the court.
A badminton rally commences once a player serves.
Once the shuttlecock touches the ground, the rally ends. If the shuttlecock lands on your side of the court, the rally point will be given to your opponent.
In a singles game, the in/ out boundaries are as follows.
In a doubles game, the in/ out boundaries are as follows.
Badminton is Played Indoor and Outdoor
Badminton can be played indoors and outdoors. If you want to enjoy the game more, I highly recommend playing indoors.
Also if you play badminton outdoors, the wind will affect the flight pattern of the shuttlecock. It will not be fun at all if the wind keeps interrupting your play!
Badminton gets interesting only when long rallies are being played. Therefore, I suggest an indoor plot if you’re looking to enjoy the sport.
Here’s an example of a really long rally in a professional match:

For my Personal Exercise Programme coursework I have chosen Badminton as my sport, the reason behind this is I enjoy playing it with my friends in sport centres as well as watching the sport. This sport is a fast moving energetic game where a lot of thinking is required. In order to play this game you need 2-4 players. This is a game where a net is required which is used for the shuttlecock to be returned over the net.
The exact origin of the game, tracing back to ancient Greece and China more than 2000 years ago, is shrouded in mystery. It is believed that the game descended directly from the ancient game of battledore and shuttlecock. This was primarily a children's game although 19th century illustrations show…show more content…
Badminton shoes need a gum sole for good grip, reinforced side walls for durability during drags, and shock dispersion technology for jumping; badminton places a lot of stress on the knees and ankles.
The Japanese manufacturer Yonex dominates the badminton equipment market, making racquets, shoes, and everything in between.
Playing the game
Each player or pair takes position on either side of a net on a rectangular court marked on the floor, as shown in the diagrams.
The object of the game is to hit a shuttlecock (normally shortened to "shuttle" or "cock"; more colloquially, "bird" or "birdie"), using a racquet, over the net onto the court within the marked boundaries before the opposing player or pair can hit it back. For every time this is achieved by the team currently serving, the serving player or pair scores one point. After winning a point the same player serves again, and continues to serve as long as they continue to win points. If the non-serving team wins the rally, no point is scored but instead there is a change of server. In doubles, one server starts the game, and after losing a rally the serve switches to the opposing team. From then on, both players on a team take turns serving before the serve switches back to their opponents. The player on the right-hand serving side always begins the serving.
At the start of a match, a
