Height of badminton net

Badminton is a sport in which racquets are used to strike a shuttlecock from one end to the other over a net. Badminton is a game in which two people hit a shuttlecock over a net. It may be played by teams, although it is most usually played as “singles” and “doubles.”

It can be played indoors and outdoors on a rectangular court. Players get the point when the opposing side doesn’t strike the shuttlecock before landing on the ground.
