The overall dimensions of a badminton court are 20 feet by 44 feet. Lines set within these dimensions set boundaries for both doubles and singles play.

The game of badminton has been a popular backyard sport for generations. Badminton sets containing a net, shuttlecocks, or birdies, and rackets are generally inexpensive. Delineating the boundaries of the court is left to the players. The badminton net sets the center court line, with its top set 5 feet off the ground. Additional lines must be set for singles and doubles sidelines, for long and short service lines and to separating the right and left service courts.
