Single Badminton Rules

A singles match in badminton features one player on each side of the net. You'll get more of a cardiovascular workout in a singles game than in a game of doubles, because you are responsible for the entire side of your court.

Double's Rules for Badminton

Doubles badminton is played with four players, or two on each side of the net. Unlike singles badminton, the boundaries of a doubles game are marked by the outer lines of the court. The one exception to this rule is that the server uses the inner back line. The net on a doubles badminton court is set at 5 feet high.

Safety Rules of Badminton

While not known as a contact sport, badminton can still produce its share of injuries. Badminton requires running, jumping and sometimes violent swinging motions, putting all participants at risk. To help limit potential injury, players should only compete at their own fitness and skill levels.
