    It basically means "do-over". So when the umpire says "play a let", it means "replay the last rally".

    Usually used in cases of ambiguity or interference, like if a line judge doesn't see where the shuttle lands, or if a shuttle from another court comes in during play.

    The must common let cases, imo, are when the server serves while the receiver is not ready. This is a let and the point is reserved.

    Also a good example. If the server serves when the receiver isn't ready, then the umpire calls a let, and the server serves again.

    Exactly, then you replay the last rally.

    I think this should be Sticky because beginners and others should know about what it means

    Also if you nth are arguing over wheter or not the shuttle lands in or out in a game without a umpire the players can decide to play a "let" so that the point Is replayed

    never ask for your own thread to be a sticky because it won't work

    There's that, and also in this case I'd wager 99% of people know what let means. Not everything can be stickied...

    agreed 99.9% of badminton players understand the concept of a "let" and even if they didn't know what the definition of a let is they would still probaly know when it was used or they have probaly still used it without knowing it was called a let
