The Badminton World Federation has mentioned all the rules of badminton games including court size. I reached them and tried to explain them straightforwardly with illustrations that were missing there. I searched for them on their website but nothing was found. After scrolling through the results, I found these rules in the Pdf published by BWF. The unit used there was meters so I converted it into feet, inches, and centimeters. You can find them in the below table. Before making any delay let’s know the accurate measurements of the badminton court in different units, especially in feet.

All measurements of the Badminton Court in Feet, Inches, centimeters and Meters

Tip: Don’t Read all tables. Just look at the unit that you mostly use. The purpose of including other units is every type of reader can get results as he desires.

Let’s know the dimensions of service court in singles and doubles.

Dimensions of Service Courts (singles) in feet

The length of service court for singles is 15.1 feet. The back boundary line also called the long service line is included in it. The width is 8.3 feet while the area is 125.3 square feet. Calculating the area of surface of the court is pretty simple. Just multiply the length and width. Anyway, I have multiplied it multiple times so you don’t need it.

Dimensions of Service Courts (Doubles) in feet

The width of the service court for doubles is 9.6 feet as sidelines are included in it. Remember, Sidelines are not for singles and back boundaries and not for doubles. One reason for including sidelines for doubles may be that two players are on either side making for them wider area for easy play. The length of the service court is 12.7 ft. After multiplying 9.6 by 12.7 we get the area in square meters and that is 122 square feet.

I missed mentioning important information about badminton court lines. Can you guess? Share the answer in the comment box. Don’t forget to share my content as I wrote it after eight hours of struggle.
