Event Overview

The NSW Police & Emergency Services Games Badminton event is on again this year and is to be held on Saturday 22 October 2022 at the Beaton Park Leisure Centre. In 2019, it was the first time the badminton event was run, and we had a  wide representation across Police, Nursing, Corrective Services both current and retired entrants, and looking forward to another fun and amazing event this year.

Badminton is a racquet sport played using racquets to hit a shuttlecock across a net.  It involves a combination of physical, technical, tactical skills and is the fastest racket sport in the world, with smashes recorded above 400km/h when played at the highest level.

Event Rules

Matches will be played in either a Round Robin Format or Double Elimination format depending on number of entries in each event category.

Each match will consist of best of 3 sets to 21 points with deuce from 20-20 onwards, to be decided by a lead of 2 consecutive points; i.e. 22-20; to a maximum cap at 30 points.

Basic rules (as per Badminton Australia):

The server is required to hit the shuttle below the hip when serving, if the serve is above the hip, this is deemed a fault

A shuttle can only be hit once upon returning a serve/shot

The shuttle must be volleyed over the net to continue play

A serve must be served diagonally with the opponents standing within their respective diagonal boxes

Players cannot make contact with the net

The service is always given to the winner of the previous point, meaning it will alternate on the point won.

The serve must alternate their location from left box to right box or vice versa when maintaining serve.
