Do you want to lose weight but do not like to do dancing and exercise? Well, sports can help you to be your recreational activity like badminton. Badminton was formerly called “Poona” or “Poonah” which is came from the town of Pune. This is one of the kind of sports that use rackets or racket to hit the shuttlecock then make it pass over the net. It can be played as singles or one vs one that is common to those who love this game and sometimes doubles or two vs two, mostly have this partnership in a competition. Badminton begins with a coin toss to see who will be the first player to serve the shuttlecock. You can always play badminton anywhere and anytime as long as you have the two important materials, the racket and the shuttlecock. It is often played as an outdoor activity which is commonly done in a wide yard or garden, an empty lot or even in a street that is seldom way of vehicles.
Badminton is a good Sport
These are the materials that is needed to play badminton. First, shuttlecock- one of the most important thing you must have because you cannot start a play without it. It has two types, made of feather and plastic or synthetic. But as far I had experienced it is much better to use the shuttlecock made if feather especially when you are playing in an open place with an air. This shuttlecock is composed of sixteen feathers. Second, racket-it is used to hit the shuttlecock and you must have it. It strings are sometimes made of plastic or light metals. Third, net-this thing would determine if you strike the shuttlecock in high level that it is required to be.
And lastly, court, every sports need this to have a formal game especially if it is a competition but sometimes it is fine to do not have this especially if you’re just playing an ordinary match. In serving, there is this terms- good and bad shot. Good shot, if you hit the shuttlecock then it passes over the net but it must also fall to the right side, if you serve on the right you need to make it go to the right of your opposite player then when you are in the left side you targeted to fall it to the left court of your opponent. Then it is called bad shot if you cannot strike the shuttlecock across the net and also if it will fall to the wrong side of the court. Also, be aware that this game has an outside that made the opponent got the point.

In scoring, the points will be awarded to the player who strike the shuttlecock using the racket across the net going to the opponent’s court. You will get the point if the shuttlecock fell on the ground of your opposite player’s court or he did not made a rally to you. Then like what I have said on the above information, you need to make sure that your shot is inside the court. The person who is responsible for the whole game is the umpire. He is the one who need to have focus in watching the game because he is the looker if who will gain the point. But sometimes, there are instances that this person did not see what happened to the game that is why there is a referee. Referee is the one who can state what he saw during the match when the umpire is not aware. Then there will be a time that they are not both aware so they will need to ask the service judge opinion about it.
