Badminton Court Dimensions
The Rules of Badminton specify universal badminton court dimensions. The shape of the court is rectangular and the net is situated at the halfway point. In most instances the same court is used in both singles and doubles play and is marked with the boundaries for both.
Overall badminton court dimensions are 44 feet long by 20 feet wide. This entire width is used in doubles but in singles, the court width is reduced to 17 feet. The service courts are marked by a center line which marks the course at halfway and a short service line which is 6.5 feet from the net. Outer side and back boundaries are also marked.
The Doubles court markings are different with a long service line which is measured 2 feet, 6 inches from the back boundary. This makes for a shorter serve length in doubles.
The height of the net is also specified in badminton court dimensions. The badminton net is a little more than 5-feet high (1.55 meters) in the middle and 5-feet, 2-inches tall on both ends. The net poles are positioned on the doubles sidelines.
