Badminton Rules Doubles
Badminton Rules Doubles are pretty much the same as singles. However I get a fair number of questions on doubles rules. Here’s a page to solve all your queries!
Service Boundaries for Badminton Doubles
Serve to the gray area so that the shuttlecock falls INSIDE.
After the receiver retrieve your serve, you can hit the shuttle towards anywhere within the yellow area below.
Badminton Scoring for Doubles – 21 Points
The Badminton Scoring System is commonly known as the 21 Points System or the New Rules.
In doubles, you may get confused about:
- Where should I serve?
- Who’s serving? Me or my partner?
Always remember that a badminton game starts from your right hand side. I’ll give you an example.
Simple isn’t it? Alright let’s move on with TWO scenarios. Let’s assume you are Player A; Your partner is Player B.
Badminton Doubles Rules for Faults
I’ll name some common Badminton Faults in doubles.
One side has only ONE attempt to retrieve the shuttle. So it’s either you or your partner who is going to hit it. Even if you accidentally touch the shuttle with your racket, and then your partner hits the the shuttle, its still a fault.
Only the Receiver Can Return the Serve.
Let’s say you are the Receiver for a particular rally. So only you can return your opponent’s serve. Your partner cannot return the serve on your behalf.
Service faults are more likely to be committed when you try to perform the Flick Serve and the ‘perfect serve’ (shuttle passing right above the net).
