How to Keep Score in Badminton

Learn how to keep score in badminton from New York City Badminton's Chris Awong in this Howcast video.


The next topic of discussion is keeping score in badminton. In badminton you play typically the best of three games. And each game lasts up to 21 points. In order to win a particular game you need to lead by at least two points. So the final score in a particular game can be 21, 10; 21,19. But, you cannot win a game by a score of 21, 20. Because like I mentioned, you need to lead by at least two points. In terms of who gets the point and when they get the point, it doesn't matter who serves, as long as the person wins the point. So if your opponent serves, but you win that rally, then you actually get that point. Regardless if you served or not. And that's how to keep score in badminton.
