Badminton in Indonesia
The rules of badminton states that a badminton match shall consist of the best of 3 games. In doubles and men's singles, your side needs to score 15 points to win. In women's single, you need 11 points to win. The game will start out with a toss. You can chose to serve first or to start on which side of the court.
Badminton is easy once you get the hang of it. You will need a badminton racket, a shuttlecock, Badminton string, and Badminton shoes.
The Indonesian Badminton Federation (PBSI) is an organization for badminton in Indonesia, established sometime during 1951 in Bandung. It's responsible for the gigantic success there.
In this game you came play one on one (single) or you can play with another person, (double). If you play with another person the other team has to have 2 players. If you play by yourself then the other person plays by them self.
You score a point and serve again from the rotating the service court when your challenger makes a 'mistake' or the shuttle stops to be in play because it touches the surface of your opponent's side of court.
No points will be scored when you make a 'mistake' or the shuttles stops to be in play because it touches the surface of your side of court. The serving right will then be moved to your challenger.
The rules for Single Badminton:
You serve from, and receive in, the right service court when you or your opponent has scored an even number of points in that game.
You serve from, and receive in, the left service court when you or your opponent has scored an odd number of points in that game.
You and your will hit the shuttle alternately until a "mistake" is made or the shuttle stops and the play ends.
The net marks the middle of the court where the net is placed, creating a 22 feet by 20 feet area on each side of the net.
The dimensions for the whole court is 20 feet by 44 feet. The lines along these measurements mark the sidelines for doubles play and long service lines for singles play.
A side wins the rally if:
*(one of) the opposing player(s) touches the shuttle with the body before it hits the ground inside or outside the court's ground
*(one of) the opposing player(s) touches the net with the racket or the body while the shuttle is in the air
*(one of) the opposing player(s) hits the shuttle before it has crossed the net by reaching over to the opponent's side of the court
*Both players of one side in a doubles touch the shuttle
*One player touches the shuttle twice in a row
*A faulty service is played
You can get a point by hitting the shuttle into the other persons side of the court and it hit the ground without them being able to hit it. Also you can gain a point when your opponent(s) hit the shuttle over to your side of the court and it either goes into the net or goes outside the lines.
They have the Olympics that they play badminton in. Below is a picture of Liliyana Natsir and Tontowi Ahmad at the London Olympic 2012 games in webley arena, August 12.
Movement pressure is a basic strategy for Badminton players. This means that you force him to cover distance rapidly and change the direction. when forcing your opponent to move quickly around the court you create situations where they get to the shuttle to late and cant get a good hit on it. Once they hit it back, you can push them even farther out of position, or try to win the rally immediately.
Below is a map of Bandung where the Indonesian Badminton Federation had started and was a huge success.
The rule people want to change that you have to get 21 points to win a game for both men and women. Its not official yet but most people want it to happen.
