Best Badminton Racket

A service court error has been made when a player has served out of turn, has served from the wrong service or standing on the wrong service court while being prepared to receive the service and it has been delivered.

If a service court error is discovered after the next service had been delivered, the error shall not be corrected. If a service court error is discovered before the next service is delivered, the following rules apply.

If both sides committed an error, it shall be a ‘let’. If one side committed the error and won the rally, it shall be a ‘let’. If one side committed the error and lost the rally, the error shall not be corrected.

If there is a ‘let’ because of a service court error, the rally is replayed with the error corrected. If a service court error is not to be corrected, play in that game shall proceed without changing the player’s new service courts.

5.Lets

‘Let’ is called by the umpire, or by a player (if there is no umpire), to halt play.

A ‘let’ may be given for any unforeseen or accidental occurrence.The rules of badminton consider the following as ‘lets’:

– If a shuttle is caught in the net and remains suspended on top or, after passing over the net, is caught in the net, it shall be a ‘let’ except on service.

– If, during service, the receiver and server are both faulted at the same time, it shall be a ‘let’.

– If the server serves before the receiver is ready, it shall be a ‘let’.

– If, during play, the shuttle disintegrates and the base completely separates from the rest of the shuttle, is shall be a ‘let’.

– If a line judge is unsighted and the umpire is unable to make a decision, it shall be a ‘let’.

– A ‘let’ may occur following a service court error. When a ‘let’ occurs, the play since the last service shall not count and the player who served shall serve again, except where in situations where the Law of Service Court Errors is applicable.
