Badminton is a sport that dates back to the sixteenth century. The sport is practiced inside, and the Olympic competitions are the pinnacle. Asian countries such as China and India are huge fans of the sport, with China and India producing some of the top players in the world.

The Goal of the Game

In badminton, the goal is to hit the shuttlecock over the net and into the allocated court areas. A rally begins when your opponent successfully returns the shuttlecock. You win a point if you force your opponent to hit the shuttlecock out or into the net during this rally. You must score 21 points to win a set, with most matches being the best of three groups. Either can result in a moment.

Players and their gear

Badminton is divided into singles and doubles (mixed doubles is also an option). Each player is permitted to use a shuttlecock and a stringed racket (similar to a tennis racket but with a smaller head). The shuttlecock has a half-round ball at the bottom and a feathery substance at the top. You can only strike the bottom of the shuttlecock, and gravity will always restore the ball side to the down position. Before the shuttlecock reaches the ground or travels over the net, you can only hit it once.

The court is 6.1 meters wide and 13.4 meters long. A 1.55m-long net runs across the center of the rectangular court. Two tram lines go down either side of the court. For singles matches, the inside lines are utilized as the parameter, whereas the outer tube is used for doubles matches.


When you successfully hit the shuttlecock over the net and into your opponent’s court before they hit it, you get the point. When your opponent hits the shuttlecock into the net or outside the boundaries, you get a moment.

The Game’s Success

You must score 21 points before your opponent to win a game. You will have won that set if you do so. If the scores are deadlocked at 20-20, the winner will be the player who can gain a two-point advantage. If the scores are still knotted at 29-29, the set will be decided on the following point. To win the overall game, you must win two of the three groups played.
