How high should a badminton net be?

I used to love to play badminton as a child and want to set up a court in my backyard.


Answer by  Edenane (22)

According to the IBF (International Badminton Federation), a net for badminton should be 5 feet one inch at the poles, and 5 feet in the center of the net. For a singles match, the court should be 44 feet long and 17 feet wide, and for a doubles match the court should be 44 feet long and 20 feet wide.

A badminton net is basically the same as a volley ball net, so you can get a cheap one at a sporting goods store, and that should be about right. A tennis net would be good if you have children and you don't think they'd be able to hit it over.

The net is supposed to be 5 feet 1 inch on the edges and 5 feet in the center. The poles are planted outside the double's line.

First of all your court needs to be 44' long by 20' wide. The poles are positioned halfway down (right in the middle) and on the outside of the court. The net is then put up 5 feet high.

A badminton net should always be 44 feet in length and between 17 to 20 feet wide depending on if you are playing a singles or doubles match. The net should stand 5 feet off the ground in the center.

Generally they are set up to be 5 foot and 1 inch high at the sides with enough slack to be 5 foot tall in the center

A regulation Badminton net should be approximately five feet (or one and a half meters) high, and twenty feet (6.1 meters) wide.


Answer by  dcasst2002 (31)

A badminton net should be stretched out and tied to two poles. The net should not be extremely tight or too loose and it should stand about five feet high.

The standardized height is 1.55. That's for professionals, so I think that for amateurs it really doesn't matter if it's a little lower or higher, because also your equipment will always be worse, too.
