The Badminton Net The top of the badminton net is hung 5 feet above in the center net line. Short Service Line The short service line is marked 6 feet 6 inches from the center line. The area inside the short service line is also called the Non Volley Zone . Center Line The Center Line is the line that divides the court from the Short Service Line to the Back Boundary Line. This delineates the Left from Right Service Court. Side Line for Singles Play The Single Line is marked 1 ½ feet from the edge of the outer boundary (doubles side line). Back Boundary Line and Long Service Line for Singles The back boundary line is the same for singles and doubles play. It is the outermost back line on the court. Long Service Line for Doubles The Long Service line for Doubles is marked 2 ½ feet inside the Back Boundary Line.  Badminton Equipments Badminton Rackets It shall not exceed 680mm in overall length and 230 mm in overall width. So how to choose a Badminton Racket that suits you most? Don't be overly economical. The lower priced rackets are usually quite heavy because they are made of cheaper material. You will tend to use more arm movements rather than your wrist to hit the shuttle if your wrist muscle is not strong enough. This will lead you to develop bad habits. Heavier rackets  are mostly preferred by players who have much stronger wrists and can therefore make use of the weight of the racket to extract more power   from it. The weight should not exceed more than 100 grams.   A majority of racket manufacturers use 1U, 2U, 3U, 4U to indicate the weight of the racket, 1U being the heaviest and 4U the lightest. The weight of high quality rackets range from 83 grams to 100 grams. Most racket manufacturers provide four grip sizes. In Japan, they range from G2, G3, G4 to G5 where G2 is the biggest size and G5 is the smallest size. In some countries, the opposite applies. Some brands go by small, medium and big sizes. Shuttlecock  A Shuttlecock  shall have 16 feathers fixed in a cork base covered in kid leather. Interestingly, the best Badminton Shuttlecocks are made from feathers from the left wing of a goose. The feathers shall be measured from the tip to the top of the base and each shuttle shall be of the same length. This length can be between 62mm and 70mm. The shuttle shall weigh between 4.74 to 5.50 grams. Shuttles are usually graded according to speed. If you have reached a certain level and can hit from baseline to baseline, use standard speed shuttlecocks. If your strength is not there yet, you can use shuttlecocks of a slightly faster speed. The speed at which the shuttle travels is also affected by the weather, altitude and temperature . When it's hot, the shuttle will fly faster. When it's cold, the shuttle will move slower. If you are playing in an air-conditioned hall, use a slightly faster shuttle. If you're playing at high altitude, use a slower speed shuttle. . Badminton String There are two types of Badminton Strings, strings made of natural guts material  or synthetic material . Natural guts strings provide more feel, control and power. It gives out less vibration and is nice to play with. However, they are less durable and more expensive. Unless you have a higher budget, you may want to use the synthetic ones. Badminton Strings have different gauge numbers to indicate the thickness or diameter of the strings. Thicker strings will have a lower gauge number. A 20 gauge string is thicker than a 22 gauge one. Thicker strings are more durable and gives more control but not as powerful. Thinner strings will give you more zip and power but they don't last long .   A lot of people think that a higher string tension means more power. In fact it's the opposite that is correct. A higher string tension will give you more control while a lower string tension will give you more power. This is due to the trampoline effect of the strings. Badminton Shoes    A good pair of Badminton Shoes  must provide good grip, cushioning and some flexibility at the forefoot. Never wear jogging shoes  to play badminton. These shoes have thicker soles and lack the stability needed for badminton. You might end up twisting your ankles. If you want to get a good grip from your badminton shoes, only wear it on badminton courts. Do not wear it for jogging or any other activities. Once the grip is gone, the shoes will not be effective on court anymore. Reserve it solely for Badminton purposes . When selecting the size, leave a space about a thumb's width from the tip of your big toe to the tip of the shoes. This will allow some room for your feet to move inside your shoes after wearing sports socks. If your heels and knees start to hurt every time you land heavily on the floor after jumping, it means that the cushioning of your shoes has worn off.  Although your shoes may still look new, it may be time to change them. If you want them to last longer, you may have to change the insole. To protect your heels, it would be wise to invest in a good pair of heel cups. While they may be expensive, they are certainly worth it as they can save you from a lot of pain. Heel cups can also help to prolong the life span of your Badminton Shoes. If you decide to invest in them, get a good pair that comes with a life-time guarantee. Badminton Accessory In this Badminton Accessory  category, I have grouped five items under it. They are Grip, Badminton Clothes, Socks, Wrist Band and Head Band.
