Badminton is a racket sport that is played on a rectangular court. A badminton court is made up of different materials, and there are four types of courts: Synthetic, Wooden, Acrylic, and Cement.
Professional tournaments are played on synthetic courts, usually on a wooden floor with synthetic mats used as the surface. In contrast, the players use wooden and acrylic courts for practicing and playing in domestic tournaments.
Badminton is played in two forms; Singles and Doubles. Therefore, these badminton courts vary in dimensions, and these dimensions are marked with the help of white and yellow lines to differentiate between them.
Also, a badminton net is placed in the middle of the court, which divides the court into two equal parts. The width of this net is 20 feet, and the height of the posts is 5 feet 1 inch long from the ground. While its height at the center is 5 feet, and its overall height is 2 feet and 6 inches.
A badminton net comprises different materials like nylon, polyester, and vinyl. But nylon nets are the most durable among all of them. Also, there are different types of traps available in the market and online: Indoor nets, Outdoor nets, and Portable nets.
Rather than this, badminton courts hold different types of ceilings, and these ceilings have a maximum height of 39 feet, which is estimated by BWF (Badminton World Federation).
And talking about the construction and cost consideration of a badminton court, let me inform you that it is a long process. It requires site preparation, laying the base layer and subfloor, selecting the playing surface, and design. The procedure costs 5- 55 lakhs, depending on your preference.
