Badminton

* Under Development *

Badminton is a racket (racquet) sport where players hit a shuttlecock over a net to score points. Badminton can be played in either singles (one player per side) or doubles with court sizes adapting for either game style. Points are scored when the shuttlecock lands on the opposing team’s half of the court. Badminton can be played casually outdoors or more formally regulated in indoor courts.

Badminton Court

Length: 44’ | 13.41 m
Width (Full/Doubles): 20’ | 6.1 m
Width (Singles): 17’ | 5.18 m
Area (Full): 880 ft2 | 81.75 m2
Clearance: 2’ | .61 m around full perimeter

Badminton courts are rectangular and are divided in half by a center net. Regardless of the game type, courts are usually marked for both singles or doubles games. Both play styles require the same court length of 44’ | 13.4 m, but double (full) courts are 20’ | 6.1 m wide and single courts are reduced to 17’ | 5.18 m. Service courts are split by a center line dividing the width of the court and are set back from the net by a ‘short service line’ of 6.5’ | 1.98 m.
