Badminton Rules Singles and Doubles

Badminton is a racket sport, like tennis and squash, and can be played as a singles game or a doubles match, just like tennis. The game takes place in a rectangular court with a network extending through the center.

The court is divided into left and right sections on each side of the network. Players – or teams, in the case of doubles matches – reached a flyer/shuttlecock, traditionally made of cork and feathers, over the net using the badminton racket to earn points.

Despite its status as an Olympic sport, it has also played recreationally in gardens and parks and on beaches. These are the basic rules of the game.

Scoring System

Competitive badminton follows a format best of three games, in which the first player in the men’s competition, or the first team in doubles matches, to reach 21 points wins the match. The decision to make 21 points The objective of each game was made by the International Badminton Federation in 2006. Recreational games, however, usually go to 15 points for single men and all doubles match. In female singles, the first player to reach 11 points wins the game.
Points can only be marked when serving, by winning a rally, which is simply the round-trip hitting on the net. When the person (or team) serving the wheel wins a rally (by landing the wheel within the boundary lines on the opponent’s side of the court, or if the opponent hits the wheel out of bounds or on the net), the server has received a point. If the side that receives wins a play, the score remains unchanged and the receiving side goes to serve.

Serve and reception in individual/Singles matches

When the server has an even number of points, it must be serving the right half of the court on its side of the network, and the opponent must receive the service in the right half of the court on its side of the network.

If the server has an odd number of points, it must be on service from the left side and the opponent must receive on the left side. At the beginning of a game, the serving player must serve first from the right side of the court.

Serve and reception in doubles matches

As in the singles match, the initial service is carried out by one player standing in the yard on the right and is received by the opponent standing on the right of the court on the other side of the net.

As in singles, the court on the right is used for service when the serving team has an even number of points in the game, the left hand when the team that draws has an odd number of points. When the team that first served loses the right to serve, the service passes to the opposing team player, who received it for the first time. From now on, the service passes to the substitute players on each side until the end of the game.
