The server will stand diagonally opposite to the opposition on the court and without touching the boundary lines. Both feet must remain on the floor until the service has been served. The servers racket must hit the base of the shuttlecock. In singles, if the server has an even number of points, they must serve from the right side of the court; if they have an odd number, they must serve from the left. The shuttlecock must be served from below waist, and the head of the badminton racket must be pointed downward. The shuttlecock must move upward from the server's racket and pass over the net so that if the opposition was to miss the hit, it would land in the correct quadrant of the...

Rules of Badminton

Below is a brief summary on the rules of the game, for a full and complete version of the I.B.F. (International Badminton Federation) rules please see http://www.worldbadminton.com/ibf_laws.html.

Badminton is a game between two players or a team of doubles hitting a light, feathered shuttlecock with a racquet over a central net. Only the serving side can score a point, while the receiving side is trying to win the right to serve the following point.

A badminton match is played as the best-of-three games. In doubles and singles, the first side to score 15 points wins the game.

A coin toss decides who is to serve first and which side of the net a player will initially defend.

Service

The shuttle must be hit below the server's waist with the racquet head below the server's hand, and the server must have part of both feet stationary in contact with the ground. The shuttle then must fall within the receiver's...

LAWS OF BADMINTON

According to the official LAWS OF BADMINTON (2012), set by the Badminton World Federation, chapter 9 is applicable: SERVICE.

In that chapter, no reference can be found of the fact that a specific time interval needs to be taken into account or that the shuttle needs to be fully released.

The following is to mention about "taking your time":

9.1.1 neither side shall cause undue delay to the delivery of the service once the server and the receiver are ready for the service. On completion of the backward movement of server’s racket head, any delay in the start of the service (Law 9.2), shall be considered to be an undue delay;

and in chapter 16, this is restricted:

16.6.1 deliberately cause delay in, or suspension of, play;

In hitting the shuttle, these two paragraphs are to be followed:

9.1.4 the server’s racket shall initially hit the base of the shuttle;
...
9.1.8 the flight of the...

Beginners don’t need to know everything about the rules. Here are some simple guidelines to get you started.

Experienced players may wish to skip this page, and move on to faults.

The absolute basics

The aim of badminton is to hit the shuttle with your racket so that it passes over the net and lands inside your opponent’s half of the court. Whenever you do this, you have won a rally; win enough rallies, and you win the match.

Your opponent has the same goal. He will try to reach the shuttle and send it back into your half of the court. You can also win rallies from your opponent’s mistakes: if he hits the shuttle into or under the net, or out of court, then you win the rally.

If you think your opponent’s shot is going to land out, then you should let it fall to the floor. If you hit the shuttle instead, then the rally continues.

Once the shuttle touches the ground, the rally is over. In this respect, badminton is not like tennis or...

Badminton is a racquet sport played using racquets to hit a shuttlecock across a net. Although it may be played with larger teams, the most common forms of the game are "singles" (with one player per side) and "doubles" (with two players per side). Badminton is often played as a casual outdoor activity in a yard or on a beach; formal games are played on a rectangular indoor court. Points are scored by striking the shuttlecock with the racquet and landing it within the opposing side's half of the court.

Each side may only strike the shuttlecock once before it passes over the net. Play ends once the shuttlecock has struck the floor or if a fault has been called by the umpire, service judge, or (in their absence) the opposing side.

The shuttlecock is a feathered or (in informal matches) plastic projectile which flies differently from the balls used in many other sports. In particular, the feathers create much higher drag, causing the shuttlecock to decelerate more...

Rallies usually end with a fault. Whoever makes the fault loses the rally.

For example, hitting the shuttle out is a fault: you lose the rally.

Service faults

Badminton has several rules about serving, most of which are meant to limit the advantage that can be gained from a serve.

In club badminton play, disputes over the legality of serves are common. It helps to know the rules before you argue over them!

With the exception of delays, breaking any of the following rules is a fault. In the case of delays, the umpire will normally warn the players first. If the players continue to delay, then the umpire would usually call a fault.

Definitions

9.2

Once the players are ready for the service, the first forward movement of the server’s racket head shall be the start of the service.

9.3

Once started, the service is delivered when the shuttle is hit by the server’s racket or, in attempting to serve, the server misses the...

The game
Like tennis, badminton can be played by singles and doubles, mixed or same sex.

Matches are played to the best of three sets.

The sport's governing body, the International Badminton Federation (IBF), has introduced a series of rule changes to make the game faster and more entertaining.

Under the old system the first player (or team) to reach 15 points won the set, except in women's singles when the target was 11 points.

However both men and women now play up to 21 points. If the score reaches 20-20, the winner is the player or team with a two-point advantage.

And if the score goes up to 29-29, the winner is the first to reach 30 points.

In badminton the serve is of huge importance. Points used to be only won on serve.

But this has been scrapped under the new changes, so a player or team can win the point without holding serve.

A team now has only one serve in doubles, rather than two...

The official badminton rules (as of May 2006, when the gamed switched from 15 points to 21 point rally scoring) are found here: http://www.worldbadminton.com/rules/ This page also links to a complete historical archive of the rules – so you can check the rules which were adopted in 1873 in the Punjab if you wish! (These rules look pretty familiar – very much like the pre-2006 play to 15 points rules, but in the good old days if the shuttlecock hit the net you lost the point automatically whether it went over or not).

If you’re not sure how the 21 point rally scoring works then there’s a detailed explanation at badminton-information.com. For the traditionalists among you, for the old, 15 point scoring rules, best use the 1992 rules.

What happened between 1992 and 2006? There were experiments with alternatives such as...
