Introduction: Rules, Regulations and a Brief History about BadmintonLearning Objectives:-The learner will understand the history of Badminton.-The learner will understand the Rules and Regulations to better understand the game.-The learner will understand the proper equipment to use during Badminton.Equipment:The Shuttlecock is a circular piece of rubber or cork that measures one to 11/8 inches in diameter.Attached to the base is a crown of 14 to 16 feathers, often made of plastic, which keep the badmintonshuttlecock aloft when hit (Central Cougars).The Shuttlecock is the official name, but is also known as a birdie, bird, or shuttle.Racquets (Racket) weigh between 79 and 91 grams including the strings. Rackets are made of alightweight durable material like aluminum or graphite. A standard aluminum badminton racketmeasures about seven inches across and 27 inches long.
Thebadminton playing area. A standard court measures 17x44 feet for singles and 20x44 feet for doubles.The service line is six feet, six inches from the badminton net on each side.History:It is believed that games played with the Shuttlecock have been around since times of Ancient Greecewhich was 2000 years back. This was a children’s game called battledore!In 1877, the rules for Badminton were created. A short time later, the first Badminton competition in theworld took place in England. This happened in 1899.Rules and Regulations:Basis of Understanding:Badminton is played to the best of three games. A coin toss dictates first serve or choice of side. Theobjective of playing a game of Badminton is to hit the shuttlecock over the net to the opposite side(opponents side of the court) within the bounds of the court. A point can be earned if the shuttlecock ishit out of bounds by the opposite player, into the net before crossing it to the opponent’s side of the netor if it strikes the body of the opponent.Serving (Central Cougars):As in tennis, badminton service is always done diagonally, e.g. from the right service court to theopponent's left service court. The first serve is always taken from the right court, and subsequent servesare taken from alternating sides. Following each initial serve, the service court that is used will dependon the serving team’s score. If the serving team has an even-numbered score (2,4,6,8…) the serve willcome from the right service court. If the serving team has an odd-numbered score (1,3,5,7…) the servewill come from the left service court. Therefore, when the person who serves first (except for on the firstserve of the game) loses his/her serve, he/she must switch service courts with his/her partner so that
the service court continues to correspond with the score. Line shots in badminton service or rallies areconsidered in, though court bounds are different for singles and doubles play. The back line is the same
