BADMINTONWhat is Badminton?Badmintonis a racket sport like tennis or table tennis that involve two opponents trying to keep an object in the air while passing it to one another over a net. The main difference here that differentiates badminton from tennis is that rather than this object being a tennis ball, players instead pass a ‘shuttle cock’ which is a small cone that has feathers coming out of the back. The game is very similar to tennis with points scored by getting the shuttle to touch the floor on the opponent’s side. Each game is played to 21 points with a match being the best of three games. As in tennis the players stand in diagonally opposite sides of their courts and take it in turns to serve.When a player loses their rally the serve passes to the other player when they will have a chance to win points. There is no ‘second serve’ in badminton. In an interesting quirk, the server will stand in his right service court when their score is an even number and the left when it is odd. Badminton is a sports game played using lightweight rackets and a shuttlecock across a net. There are two sorts of game singles and doubles. Points are scored by striking the shuttlecock with the racket and landing opponents court. This game was usually played outdoor but nowadays it is played on indoor courts. It is played on a rectangular court measuring 44 feet x 17 feet for a singles match (one player per side) and 44 feet x 20 feet for a doubles match (two players per side).
