In badminton you can either play singles or double. Before you can
get started you need the following utensils.
The size of the field depends on whether you play single or double.
If you play single the field is a little smaller on the sides (see
graphics), if you play double the outer lines border the field.
The net divides the field into two parts. It should be 1.55 metres
high and you need to play the ball over the net.
The badminton-racket is very light. Badminton is a quick sport in
which the player needs good reflexes and at the same time accurateness.
The little weight of the racket makes everything a little easier.
Rackets for badminton are not very expensive. You can get a fairly
good one for 70 €.
The most important thing in this sport is the ball. You always need
to control whether it is ok or broken in any way. The course of a
broken shuttlecock can not be controlled by the player. With shuttlecocks
you can expect a high wastage and therefore you should always take
some more shuttlecocks with you if you want to go and play badminton.
