The sport of badminton depends on an appropriately installed badminton net to make a physical obstruction between singles and doubles opponents. The badminton net is what equally divides the badminton court into two sides, creating the objective of attempting to make the shuttlecock hit the floor on the other side to win a point. Without a proper badminton net, the sport would not exist in the form, it does nowadays.
The badminton net needs to be installed accurately and the height & width must be accurate to attain consistent play on any badminton court in any facility. The most excellent badminton net installations are either permanently affixed posts or heavy posts systems. The net post should be placed exactly outside of the doubles court lines so that the badminton net is extended over the complete width of the court. A pro player may also wish to have the posts on or inside of the line because it could interfere with a winning point at a net level down the line.
The badminton net is made of a thick nylon cord that runs through a white nylon tape which ties to each side of the post. The nylon cord and tape are important parts of the badminton net since the shuttlecock mostly hits the tape and is either rejected and falls back on the hitters’ side or it pops over the badminton net causing a rebound that often leads to winning a point.
The badminton net is set to 5’1” above the line, and it is permitted to droop specifically 1” to 5’0” at the centre of the court. The mesh on the badminton net is 2’6” long and can regularly be tied off at each side. Numerous installations don't tie the badminton net down the sides because it can cause restriction when going back and forward under the net. Li-Ning Badminton offers two types of badminton nets. The basic difference is of the badminton net mesh. The tighter the mesh, the more durable it is. A stronger mesh is preferred by some pro players as it stands better against the constant pounding by the shuttlecock.
