What happens if both players have a same score at 20 points in badminton?
Question: What will happen if the two players had same score at 20 points?
Answer Hi Saina, thanks for your question.
When the score in badminton reaches 20-20, the game will be deuced.
Deuce is a common badminton terminology. This term is also used in tennis. This means that the game can only be won if one party is 2 points ahead of the other party.
For example, the game will end when the score reaches 22-20, 24-22, or 25-23 and so on.
If the score ever reaches 29-29, the next player that reaches 30 will win the game straight away. However, I’ve never seen a badminton game that reaches the score of 29-29 since the inception of the new rules.
