In a Badminton Tournament I have watched, a toss was conducted before the game starts. The winner of the toss can chose whether to make the first service of the match or whether to return first, thus leaving the first service to the opponent. The side that lost the toss can then chose on which end of the court he want to start. Alternatively, the side that wins the toss may also choose to select the end of the curt on which he wants to start. The right to decide who makes the first service in the match then goes to the side that lost the toss. It happened last August 5 in the 2012 Olympics that is held in Wembley Area Court 1 in London. There are two categories in Badminton that I’ve watched, one is the Men’s Singles and the other is the Men’s Doubles. Both of these matches are for the gold medal between the two countries that will compete.
The game had their officials. The referee, where in is the overall charge of the tournament. The umpire, where appointed, is in charge of the match, the court and its immediate surrounds. The umpire shall report to the referee. The service judge shall call service faults made by the server should they occur. A line judge shall indicate whether a shuttle landed 'in' or 'out' on the line or lines assigned. An official's decision is final on all points of fact for which that official is responsible.
I first watched the game in Singles. It was a match between the representatives of China, Lin Dan with four wins and zero lose, and from Malaysia, Lee Chong Wei who had also four wins and no loses. Their umpire was Unang Sukardja from Indonesia. A badminton match commonly consists of up to three sets. The side that first reaches 21 points wins a set. For singles, one thing to be considered is, the player shall serve from, and receive in, the right service court when he or his opponent has scored an even number of points in that game. And shall serve from, and receive in, the left service court when he or his opponent has scored an odd number of points in that game.
Lee took the first game of the match 21-15 and looked set to end his Olympic career in style, only for Lin to hit back and take the second 21-10 to set up a thrilling finale. The match was delicately poised at 19-19 when Lin Dan maneuvered to deliver one of his devastating 200mph left-handed smashes, but instead deftly produced a drop shot which completely threw Lee off and set up match point. Chinese superstar Lin wasn't going to let that opportunity slip and took gold as he wrapped up the third game 21-19. A player must have 21 points to be declared as a winner. And China won the gold medal for the Men’s Singles.
Then I watched the game in Doubles. This match was between China and Denmark. The representatives of China were Cai Yun and Fu Haifeng. While in Denmark the representatives were Carsten Mogensen and Mathias Boe. They also both compete for the gold medal. Their umpire was Ian Spear from Great Britain. A rule in Doubles must considered, each time a side gains the right to serve, the service shall be delivered from the right service court. Only the opponent standing diagonally opposite of the player shall return the service. After the service is returned, either you or your partner may hit the shuttle from any position on your side of the net. Then either player from the opposing side may do the same, and so on, until the shuttle ceases to be in play. If the players are serving or receiving first at the start of any game, they shall serve or receive in the right service court when your opponent's side scored an even number of points. And they shall serve from or receive in the left service court when their side has scored an odd number of points.
Cai and Fu geared up quickly in the first game to rule the court, where the Danish only started to become aggressive after being outscored 1-4. They impressed the audience by catching up the Chinese pair, who enjoyed 11-6 advantage before the interval, and levelling the scores 12-12. But some mistakes from Boe and Mogensen sent their rival to a 21-16 victory. The end came with a spectacular smash from Cai scored 21-15, before the duo span and embraced in celebration. China's dominance of badminton at London 2012 was complete.
These both two games had similar rules but vary on the number of players in the game. They both obey the rules and had a wonderful game. I want to congratulate China for winning the gold medals for Men’s Singles and Men’s doubles. A big applause for Lin Dan for singles, Cai Yun and Fu Haifeng for doubles.

...Badminton is a racquet sport played by either two opposing players (singles) or two opposing pairs (doubles), who take positions on opposite halves of a rectangular court divided by a net. Players score points by striking a shuttlecock with their racquet so that it passes over the net and lands in their opponents' half of the court. Each side may only strike the shuttlecock once before it passes over the net. A rally ends once the shuttlecock has struck the floor, or if a fault has been called by either the umpire or service judge or, in their absence, the offending player, at any time during the rally. The shuttlecock (or shuttle) is a feathered (or, mainly in uncompetitive games, plastic) projectile whose unique aerodynamic properties cause it to fly differently from the balls used in most racquet sports; in particular, the feathers create much higher drag, causing the shuttlecock to decelerate more rapidly than a ball. Shuttlecocks have a much higher top speed, when compared to other racquet sports. Because shuttlecock flight is affected by wind, competitive badminton is played indoors. Badminton is also played outdoors as a casual recreational activity, often as a garden or beach game. Since 1992, badminton has been an Olympic sport with five events: men's and women's singles, men's and women's doubles, and mixed doubles, in which each pair consists of a man and a woman. At high levels of play, especially in singles, the sport demands excellent fitness: players require...

...The Different Skills Used in Playing Badminton * Drive - A fast and low shot that makes a horizontal flight over the net. * Drop - A shot hit sonly and with finesse to fall rapidly and close to the net on the opponent’s side. * Fault - A violation of the playing rules, either in serving, receiving, or during play (sees common faults listed below). * Flick - A quick wrist and forearm rotation that surprises an opponent by changing an apparently soft shot into a faster passing one; used primarily on the serve and at the net. * Hairpin Net Shot - Shot made from below and very close to the net with the shuttle rising, just clearing the net, and then dropping sharply down the other side. The shuttle’s flight approximates the shape of a hairpin. * Half court Shot - A shot hit low and to midcourt, used effectively in doubles against the up-and-back formation. * Kill - Fast, downward shot that cannot be returned; a "put away." * Let - A legitimate cessation of play to allow a rally to be replayed. * Match - A series of games (at U.S. Olympic Festival-’93 it is three out of five), to determine a winner. Midcourt - The middle third of the court, halfway between the net and the back boundary line. * Net Shot - Shot hit from the forecourt that just clears the net and drops sharply. * Push Shot - Gentle shot played by pushing the shuttle with little wrist motion, usually from net or midcourt to the opponent’s midcourt. * Rally – this occurs......

...Rules of Badminton You shall 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 shall 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 opponent will hit the shuttle alternately until a 'fault' is made or the shuttle ceases to be in play. Scoring System You score a point and serve again from the alternate service court when your opponent makes a 'fault' or the shuttle ceases 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 'fault' or the shuttles ceases to be in play because it touches the surface of your side of court. The serving right will then be transferred to your opponent. What are the fault in Badminton?

(The striker may, however, follow the shuttle over the net with the racket in the course of a stroke.) - If a player touches the net or its supports with racket, person or dress, invades an opponent's court over the net with racket or......

...* Appearance and clothing- If a badminton tournament has reasonably large prize money and attracts attention from the media, the officials usually wear shirts sponsored by the tournament sponsor. In smaller badminton tournaments held regionally or within a club, I doubt there that there are standard uniformed shirts given to the officials. Their clothing is mostly polo shirts, blazer and smart trousers. They must look different from any player that is playing the game so their appearance may vary. * Equipment needed - Typically a Badminton umpire need. A watch with timer and/or stopwatch; one yellow, and one red card (black card if you are a referee), clipboard and whistle for them to carry out their job of watching the badminton game. * Fitness required – No fitness required but good eyesight on the shuttle if needed for the umpire to call if the shuttle was in or out of the court. * Qualifications / knowledge required – An umpire would need to know the rules of badminton as well as needing to complete an official umpiring qualification and to take 2 theory exams on sports or particular sports. Their grades must be from C upwards. * Use of technology – Umpires usually used an electronic scoring system and an electronic shuttlecock sensor to make sure that the scoring is fair and to make sure every score given is correct. * Effective communication (voice, whistle, signals) – Usually a line judge verbally communicates with the other 2 officials including the......

...HISTORY The history of the development of modern badminton is a very long and complex one. Below is a brief account of the history of the game. Origins of the Game The sport of badminton has its origins in ancient civilizations in Europe and Asia.  The ancient game known as battledore (bat or paddle) and shuttlecock probably originated more than 2000 years ago. In the 1600s Battledore and Shuttlecock was an upper class pastime in England and many European countries. Battledore and Shuttlecock was simply two people hitting a shuttlecock backwards and forwards with a simple bat as many times as they could without allowing it to hit the ground. Badminton House Badminton takes its name from Badminton House - home of the Duke of Beaufort in the English county of Gloucestershire. In 1873, the Duke is credited with bringing a version of the game – Poona - back from India and introducing it to his guests. Getting organised The sport quickly grew in popularity and in 1877 the first set of written rules were devised by the newly formed Bath Badminton Club. The Badminton Federation of England was created 16 years later and in 1899 it organised the first All England Championships. Olympic history Badminton made its debut as a demonstration sport at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. It was not until the 1992 Games in Barcelona that it was officially included on the Olympic programme, with men’s and women’s singles and doubles events. The mixed doubles event made its debut in...

...Funniest Moment It is normal that you almost know everything about your friends. You know her crush, favorite food, artist, song and even her things like clothes, shoes, makeup, gadgets and many other more. You almost know everything about her since you’re always with her. In my part, the funny thing is that I was with my friends that moment. We were sitting in the corridor waiting for our next class. We are all busy doing our things like chatting, reviewing and texting. When the bell rang we are about to enter the room. I was about to stand up when one of my friend, Stephanie, said that “ Uy, yong bag ni Hazel” referring to one of our friend. So thinking that it was hazel’s bag, I was about to carry the bag and give it to hazel because she went to the restroom. But before I was able to pick up the bag, I notice Stephanie is smiling devilishly. So I had the second thought. It was then that Hazel is back, carrying her bag. Then I realize that it was not hazel’s bag after all. It was the bag of the girl sitting beside me. The girl looks at me weirdly. She may have other thought about me picking her bag. I feel ashamed and shocked at the same time, knowing that I might have done such peculiar thing in my life. After realizing the prank that Stephanie has done to me, I ran as fast as I could just to move away from that place. My Family My family is the best that I have.

Feasibility of Banana Peel as a Floor Wax

...The 4 Common stroke in Badminton Badminton offers a wide variety of basic strokes, and players require a high level of skill to perform all of them effectively. All strokes can be played either forehand or backhand. A player's forehand side is the same side as their playing hand: for a right-handed player, the forehand side is their right side and the backhand side is their left side. Forehand strokes are hit with the front of the hand leading (like hitting with the palm), whereas backhand strokes are hit with the back of the hand leading (like hitting with the knuckles). Players frequently play certain strokes on the forehand side with a backhand hitting action, and vice versa. Clear- the shuttle soars high in a high arc and falls into the court behind the opponent. Drop- the shuttle falls gently and just clears the net. Drive- it is a hard stroke hit on a straight line. Smash / kill- it is a hard stroke hit sharply downward. Facilities and Equipments Court- For Singles- 44 feet long and 17 feet wide For Doubles- 44 feet long and 20 feet wide Net- Stretched from post to post, 2 feet and 6 inches in depth, and 5 feet in height from the floor.
