Badminton Net

Dimensioned drawing of a Badminton Net with players documenting the width and height

The Badminton Net is the central gameplay element in a game of Badminton, requiring players to return the shuttlecock from one side of the court to the other during the match. Made taut by the use of weighted tension poles on the outside edges of the badminton court, the badminton net is allowed to sag slightly in the center of the span. Unlike other sport nets that require the poles to be installed permanently, badminton nets are often mobile and can be moved and setup quickly when ready for play. Variations of badminton nets come in polyethylene, nylon, and vinyl.

Badminton Nets span the entire 20’ (6.1 m) width of the court and are placed over the doubles sidelines, even when singles games are played. The net has a height of 5’1” (1.55 m) at the edges and sags slightly at the center resulting in a height of 5’ (1.52 m). Badminton nets are split into a 1:1 ratio with a 30’ (76 cm) opening below the mesh and an equal surface above.

How high is a badminton net?

Badminton nets are regulated at a height of 5’1” (1.55 m) at the edges of the court and 5’ (1.52 m) at the center of the court.

Badminton is a racket (racquet) sport where players hit a shuttlecock over a net to score points. Badminton can be played in either singles (one player per side) or doubles with court sizes for either game style. Points are scored when the shuttlecock lands on the opposing team’s half of the court.
