| A badminton court is a rectangular space, 44 feet long X 17 feet
wide for a single's match and 44 feet long X 20 feet wide for a double's
match. It is normally made out of wood or composite flooring surface. The
idea is for it to be smooth and leveled. A minimum of 6.5 feet of clear
space on all four sides is required.
The court is divided into two halves by a net. The next obvious question
is- how high is badminton net? The net is supposed to be 5 feet 1 inch
on the edges and 5 feet in the centre. The poles that support the net are
planted outside the double's line even when a single's match is being played.

badminton net must measure 5 feet at the center and 5 feet 1 inch at the
sidelines. Vertical posts at either side of the court provide support for
the net. The net posts must measure 5 feet, 1 inch in height. The net height
remains the same for singles and doubles play as well as for menís and
The Badminton World Federation's Laws of the Game dictate that the
dark mesh badminton net must measures 30 inches from top to bottom. The
shuttlecock cannot pass through our under the net.
White tape runs along the top of the net covering the net cord. The
white tape should measure about 3 inches in height. This tape makes the
top of the net more visible to players, spectators and rules officials.

States Tennis Association and International Tennis Federation rules, the
standard tennis net measures 3 feet at the center and 3 feet 6 inches at
the sides. The badminton net does not reach as high as the standard volleyball
net, however. According to USA Volleyball and International Federation

must measure 7 feet ,11 5/8 inches, while the standard volleyball net for
womenís competition must measure 7 feet, 4 1/8 inches.
