Winning In Badminton • In badminton you have to hit the shuttlecock over the net with your racquet. • A match is made up of best of 3 sets meaning that you need to win 2 sets to win a match. • To win a set you need to get 21 points. • You earn a point if your opponent fails to hit the shuttlecock before it lands on the floor, or if your opponent hits the shuttlecock into the net or outside of the parameters. • To win the point the shuttlecock must land within the parameters.

Rules • A fault is given if a player hits the net with a part of their body or with the racquet and the opponent earns the point. • A fault is also given if a player distracts his opponent on purpose, the shuttlecock is hit more than once or the shuttlecock gets caught in the racquet or hand and is flung. • A let is when the game stops and the last serve is not counted. This serve will then be replayed. This can happen if a server served out of turn, a player was not ready or if the referees or not sure if the shuttle cock landed in or out of the parameters. • These decisions are taken(umpired) by a referee on a high chair. • If the shuttlecock is ‘live’ a player can hit it from outside of the playing area. • A serve must be hit from under the waist.

Time • A match is about an hour long. • When the leading score reaches 11 points both players get a 60 second time out. • A 2 minute break is allowed between each game.
