Badminton is a popular sport in Singapore, particularly in Asia. It is played at all levels, from casual games between friends to professional tournaments.

If you’re interested in playing badminton, there are a few things you need to know and prepare before starting. Here are the basics of the game:

Equipment

A piece of equipment for badminton is the racket. It should be made of lightweight materials such as high-module graphite or carbon. The strings of the racket should be tight and have a good repulsion enough to allow the shuttlecock to be hit with speed and accuracy.

The shuttlecock is a feathered projectile that is hit back and forth over the net. It is made of 16 feathers attached to a cork base. The net is placed in the middle of the court and is 5 feet high in the middle.

Scoring

A game of badminton is played to 21 points. A point is scored when the shuttlecock is hit into the opponent’s court and they are unable to return it, or when the opponent hits the shuttlecock out of bounds.

If the score reaches 20-20, then the next point is played as a “set point.” The first player to reach two set points wins the game.

Rules

Badminton is played either as singles (one player per side) or doubles (two players per side).

The game starts with a player serving the shuttlecock from behind the baseline of their court diagonally into the opponent’s court. The shuttlecock must clear the net and land in the opponent’s court. The opponent then hits the shuttlecock back over the net.

Players can hit the shuttlecock anywhere on their side of the court. They can also hit it into the opponent’s court, but they cannot hit it twice in a row.

The shuttlecock can be hit with either the racket’s head or strings. A player can only hit the shuttlecock once before it must be returned back over the net. The game is over when one player reaches 21 points, or when one team has won two set points.

Strategy

Strategy is when you play single, you know how to let the opponent run and make mistakes to help you win the point. Badminton is a game of quick reflexes and strategic shot-making. The best way to improve your game is to practice and play as often as possible.

When you’re hitting the shuttlecock, aim for the corners of the court. This will make it more difficult for your opponent to return the shot. Like make them run around to burn their stamina and when they are tired, they will probably lose the game.

Also, try to keep the shuttlecock low over the net. This makes it more difficult for your opponent to hit a powerful return shot. Force them to life and by the time you can use your favorite skill smash them.

Finally, try to vary your shots. This will keep your opponent guessing and off-balance, for example, drop and smash combination in one pattern, let the opponent can’t find out what skill you going to hit over.

Now that you know the basics of badminton, about 50%! get out there and start playing!
