Badminton Nets

Badminton nets run the entire width of the court (20’ | 6.1 m) and are placed over the doubles sidelines, even when singles games are played. The net is 5’1” | 1.55 m high at the edges and sags slightly at the center resulting in a height of 5’ | 1.52 m. Badminton nets are split into a 1:1 ratio from the floor to the top providing a 2.5’ | .76 m opening below and an equal mesh surface above. Variations of badminton nets come in polyethylene, nylon, and vinyl.

Badminton Court

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; shrinking by 1.5’ | .46 m on both sides. 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. Doubles games also require a ‘long service line’ that is drawn 2.5’ | .76 m in from the back boundary. Clearances of 2’ | .61 m should be providing around the full court.
