How To Play Badminton: Game Rules

Badminton singles is a match consists of the best of three games of 21 points. Every time there’s a serve, there’s a point scored. The side winning a rally adds a point to its score. At 20 all, the side which gains a two-point lead first wins that game. At 29 all, the side scoring the 30th point wins that game. The side winning a game serves first in the next game.

When the score is zero-zero, or when the server’s score is an even number, such as zero, two, four, six, eight, and so on, the server serves from the right service court, as shown in the area highlighted with the white squares. In addition, the server has to serve to the opponent in a diagonal direction. The server can’t serve to the opponent directly opposite from the server.

When the server’s score is an odd number, such as one, three, five, seven, and so on, the server serves from the left service court, as shown in the area highlighted with the white squares. Again, the server has to serve to the opponent in a diagonal direction. The server will lose a point if he or she serves to the opponent directly opposite from him or her.

If the server wins a rally, the server scores a point, and then serve again from the alternate service court. If the receiver wins a rally, the receiver scores a point and becomes the new server. Left service court if the score is odd, and right service court if the score is even.

When you were served, the first hit, you have to make sure your shuttlecock goes beyond a short service line. The blue arrows indicate the short service lines. Also, on the first hit, your shuttlecock will consider out of bound if it lands beyond a singles sideline, as indicated by the orange arrows, or it lands beyond the baseline, as pointed by the black arrows in the video. However, after the first hit, on the second hit or other following hits, the shuttlecock can land anywhere on the court, as long as it doesn’t land beyond a singles sideline and baseline.

All right, let’s recap on the rules of badminton singles. Here’s the scoring system of badminton singles.

  • It is a match consists of the best of three games of 21 points.
  • Every time there is a serve, there’s a point scored.
  • The side winning a rally adds a point to its score.
  • At 20 all, the side which gains a two-point lead first wins that game.
  • At 29 all, the side scoring the 30th point wins that game.
  • The side winning a game serves first in the next game.

Here is a quick summary of the rules for badminton singles. At the beginning of the game, when the score is zero-zero and when the server’s score is even, the server serves from the right service court. When the server’s score is odd, the server serves from the left service court. If the server wins a rally, the server scores a point and then serves again from the alternate service court. If the receiver wins a rally, the receiver scores a point and becomes the new server. They serve from the appropriate service court. Left if the score is odd, and the right if the score is even.

  1. When I first started badminton I got the Nanoray 50fx around 58 dollars. It is really good for its price. It lacks drive for smashes tho but if you are a beginner should not matter too much.
