How to Play Badminton


How to Play Badminton. For anyone who’s ever wondered why people
are swatting an odd-looking object back and forth across a net, here’s the lowdown. You will need Two or four players A badminton
court A net A shuttlecock and badminton rackets. Step 1. Set up a court by establishing boundaries
of 44 feet long by 17 feet wide for a singles game and 44 feet by 20 feet for a doubles
game. Place a net in the middle, with the top 5
feet off the ground. Step 2. Know the object of the game, which is similar
to tennis: Opposing players with rackets hit the shuttlecock back and forth over a net
trying not to let it hit the ground. Shuttlecocks, which are also called shuttles
or birdies, come in two types: Cork-based with feathers, and plastic with a rubber base. Step 3. Know what constitutes a fault, or an error. A fault is made when the shuttlecock lands
outside the boundary lines, does not clear the net, hits the ground before being returned,
or makes contact with a player’s body or clothing. Step 4. Start with a coin toss; the winner chooses
a side of the court and decides if they want to serve first or not. Step 5. The game begins with the player serving underhanded
from the back of the court on their right side diagonally across the court to the other
team. If the shuttlecock doesn’t clear the net or
lands outside the service area, the other team scores a point and gains serve. Serve from the right when your score is even,
left when it’s odd. Players only get one chance to serve, unless
they miss the birdie completely, or the birdie touches the net on its way across – which
is called a let. Step 6. Whoever wins each rally wins the point, and
whoever gets to 21 points wins a game. If players are tied at 20, the team with the
first two-point lead wins. If the scores go to 29 without anyone attaining
the two-point lead, the first team to reach 30 wins. The match is won by the best two out of three
games played. Did you know Badminton is the world’s fastest-paced
racket sport, with the shuttlecock flying across the net at speeds of almost 200 miles
per hour.

  1. @chocko69chick .. Yes they are.. These guys used super simple things that doest make smashes.. The height of net explains it all.. The outer line, they didnt do it, so it's they foult bro.

  2. @marklx50 That's in controlled conditions. I think Fu Haifeng still holds it for the fastest smash in a match (332 km/h). But a shuttle slows down quickly.

  3. This is pathetic. Call it something else if you are to play it outdoor. Don't even relate badminton to this non-sense.

    This is as ridiculous as teaching how to play ice-hockey outside of your house garage.

  4. this is just stupid
    Totally have the wrong idea of playing badminton, wtf
    just stop posting this useless, misleading video..

  5. nets supposed to be ~5 feet high not like 7 or 8 ft determining server is simple if you dont have a coin in hand… hit the bird straight up and see which way it points when it lands

  6. @jade1104you Let is also for badminton… But there is no let when the shuttlecock passes while touching the net during the serve.

  7. That's not badminton 0_o
    If you want to know what badminton really is, search "2010 Badminton Asian Games 720HD MS Final Highlight Dan LIN [CHN] vs [MAS] Chong Wei LEE" on youtube and you'll see why badminton is the fastest racket sport in the world, and one of the most intense sport in the world.

  8. @zolikonyves it is but i was hoping for a bit more of a challenging type of practice or lesson from this vid cuz i already know how to play basic badminton well

  9. it would be okay if whoever wins on tossing coin chooses which side of the court he or she wants to be in but the winner won't decide whether he or she wants to serve. toss the shuttlecock to know who serves

  10. and if the ball hits someones body that is not a fault it's called badminton smash to overcome it use back hand

  11. U DONT SERVE AT THE BACK RIGHT CORNER! U SERVE AT THE FRONT! GOD! oh btw just saying im one of the usa badminton members

  12. next How to video: how to breathe and how to have a life ( 2-4 episodes, because of the high difficulty )

  13. This isn't badminton, it's fucking casual garden badminton. Also I like how they used tennis ball sound effects to demonstrate the hitting sound.

  14. Possibly the most ill-informed instructional video I've ever seen in my life. Every detail is wrong. Listen closely, they even play tennis sound effects when they hit the shuttle

  15. What a stupid video. If you have never played badminton before, please do NOT pay any attention to any of the advice in this video. It has some glaring errors. Net height shown, where to serve from, etc., all wrong. Please take this video off the web.

  16. I actually play competitive badminton and it is not like this, same with regular badminton, and you can also serve backhand and you never serve from the back of the court

  17. narrator says 5 ft… if the net is 5ft in the vid, those guys playing must be midgets…..
    also the dubbed audio for shuttle contact is awful
    Also flaws in the rules stated

  18. This video is funny i am a badminton player here in Philippines and i never saw any badminton players playing like that. Oh wait the net is too high and you need 1 to 2 player not higher (bad English)
