We all know that when we talk about sport, the first things that come to mind are sports such as football, basketball, tennis or paddle tennis. Also fitness in the gym or crossfit. However, there are many, many sports that we can enjoy today. One with an incredible popularity in Asia, although with much less presence in our country, is badminton. That is why in today's article we would like to focus on the badminton court. What are its exact dimensions?

Badminton court

The official dimensions of the badminton court differ depending on whether it is a single or double court. For single courts, the dimensions are 13.4 metres long and 5.18 metres wide, forming a rectangle. In the case of the double court, the dimensions are again 13.4 metres for the length, although with an increase to 6.1 metres for the width. This is logical if we take into account that four people require more space to participate in the game.

In addition, we must also pay attention to other fundamental measures. As in other paddle sports such as tennis or padel, badminton has a net located in the centre of the court. It divides the 13.4-metre length in two and must be 760 millimetres wide. As for the length, it must be at least 6.1 metres long, even when the match is individual. Now you know a little more about the sport, but is there anything else you should know about the badminton court ?

Of course it is! For example, the height of the posts on which the net is placed: 1.55 metres. And the lines painted on the pitch must be at least 40 millimetres thick. In general, they are usually painted in white, but other colours such as red or yellow are acceptable. The important thing, as is obvious, is that they are clearly distinguishable and allow for normal sporting activity. The colour of the badminton court must be taken into account. This will create contrast.

What else can we tell you as specialist badminton court manufacturers? Well, the width of the court is divided into four halves, with two 2.53 metre zones in the middle, which delimit the left-hand service zone and the right-hand service zone. The other two correspond to two 0.42-metre zones that are intended to mark the difference between the singles court and the doubles court. As you can see, many regulatory measures must be taken into account to build a professional court.

Finally, there are a few facts about the badminton court that we should know. Specifically, the service area is located between the long service line and the short service line, the former being located 0.72 metres from the baseline and the latter at 1.98 metres. However, it should be noted that there are varieties such as mini-badminton that have other dimensions and rules. At Grupo Pineda, as you know, we can take care of the project regardless of the variety chosen.
