Equipment needed:A Badminton racket and a Shuttlecock

the type of suitable clothing: Protect yourself in all types of weather by making sure your clothing easily absorbs sweat

the rules of the sport:Standard size is 20 feet wide and 44 feet long. The length and width may be modified depending of the area available, though.
The net is stretched across the center of the court, dividing it in half. The net's height is 5 at the center and 51" at the poles.
In doubles, two players are on each side:

  • The team winning the coin toss has the option to either serve first, receive the serve or choosing the court end. The side that serves first has one service to start the game. After the game begins, each team gets two serves.
  • The team that serves first must serve from the right half of their court, diagonally opposite to the opponent's right half court.
  • The serve alternates from the right half court to left half court after each serve, so nobody on the opposing team receives two serves in a row. Teammates always serve consecutively.

In singles, one player is on each side:

  • Players serve from the right half court whenever their score is 0" or an even number.
  • Players serve from the left half court on odd numbered points.

When a serve results in a fault, one serve is lost. If the team receiving the serve makes a fault, the team serving gets a point and continues the serve. The serve must alternate from right and left half courts after each serve as stated before.
PLAYING: The game is played to either 15 or 21 points. The best two out of three games wins the match. Teams change court sides after each game.
A fault occurs when:

  • The shuttle is served overhand. The shuttle must be struck at a point not higher than the server's waist.
  • In serving, the shuttle falls into wrong service court or falls short of the service line or beyond the long service line or outside the side boundary lines.
  • The server or person receiving the service does not serve from within their right or left half court, whichever the case may be.
  • The server or player intentionally distracts, balks or obstructs his opponent.
  • The server in attempting to serve, misses the shuttle.
  • The shuttle falls outside the boundaries of the court, goes through or under the net or fails to go over the net
  • A player reaches over the net and hits the shuttle on the opponent's side of the court. However a player may hit the shuttle on their side of the court and follow through on the swing over the net.
  • If the shuttle is hit twice in succession by the same player or the shuttle is hit by a player and his teammate successively.

Note: It is not a fault if the shuttle hits the net during service or play and goes over the net. If this occurs during the serve, it is just reserved.

the skills needed:Agility,Strength,Flexibility

history of the sport:

Badminton was known in ancient times; an early form of sport played in ancient Greece and Egypt. Badminton came from a game called battledore and shuttlecock, in which two players hit a feathered shuttlecock back and forth with tiny rackets. The game was called "Poona" in India during the 18th Century, and British Army Officers stationed there took the Indian version back to England in the 1860's. The new sport was definitively launched in 1873 at the Badminton House, Gloucestershire owned by the Duke of Beaufort. During that time, the game was referred to as "The Game of Badminton," and, the game's official name became Badminton.[2]
Until 1887 the sport was played in England under the rules that prevailed in India. The Bath Badminton Club standardized the rules and made the game applicable to English ideas. The basic regulations were drawn up in 1887.[2] However, in 1893, the Badminton Association of England published the first set of rules according to these regulations, similar to that of today, and officially launched badminton in a house called "Dunbar" at 6 Waverley Grove, Portsmouth, England on September 13 of that year.[3] They also started the All England Open Badminton Championships, the first badminton competition in the world, in 1899.
The Badminton World Federation (BWF) was established in 1934 with Canada, Denmark, England, France, the Netherlands, Ireland, New Zealand, Scotland, and Wales as its founding members. India joined as an affiliate in 1936. The BWF now governs international badminton and develops the sport globally.[4]
