Dimensions of a Badminton Court The dimensions of a badminton court are standardised by the Badminton World Federation (BWF). The court is rectangular and measures 13.4 meters (44 feet) long and 6.1 meters (20 feet) wide for doubles matches. For singles matches, the court is narrowed to 5.18 meters (17 feet) wide. The court is divided into two halves by a net that is suspended from two posts. The net is 1.55 meters (5 feet 1 inch) high at the ends and 1.52 meters (5 feet) high in the middle.
The court is also divided into four service courts, two on each side of the net. The service courts are separated by a centre line and are 3.66 meters (12 feet) long and 2.44 meters (8 feet) wide. The lines marking out the court are 4 centimetres (1.5 inches) wide and should be white or yellow. The court should have a clearance of at least 2 meters (6.5 feet) on all sides.
In addition to the above dimensions, here are some other important things to know about a badminton court: The short service line is located 2 meters (6.5 feet) from the net and marks the front boundary of the service court. The long service line is located 3.96 meters (13 feet) from the net and marks the back boundary of the service court in doubles matches. The sidelines run along the length of the court and mark the outer boundaries of the court. The centre line divides the court into two halves and marks the centre of the service courts.
The net posts are placed on the doubles sidelines and support the badminton net. Badminton courts can be either indoor or outdoor. Indoor courts are typically made of hardwood or synthetic wood, while outdoor courts are typically made of concrete or asphalt. Badminton is a popular sport all over the world, and it is played by people of all ages and skill levels. The standardisation of the dimensions of a badminton court allows people to play the game on any court, anywhere in the world.
