Badminton Study Guide
By Katrina Mosley
A match consists of the best of three games of 21 points. Each serve, there is a point scored. The side that wins the game, serves for the next game. If the score if 20 all, the team to get the next two points wins.
If the servers score is even, they serve from the right side of the court. If the servers score is odd, they will serve from the left side of the court. If the server wins a rally, they serve again and move to the other side of the court. If the receiver wins the rally, they become the new server.
Each side only has one service. The server serves from the right side of the court if their points are even, and if they are odd, they will serve from the left side of the court. If the server wins a rally, they move to the opposite side of the court and serve again. If the receiver wins the rally, they move to the appropriate side and they will become the new server.
