    of anybodys string or racquet break then its not a reserve, the shuttle on the other hand for it to be a let or reserve then the cork has to seperate from the skirt in otherwords when using nylon the cork has to come off when using feathers the cork would have to seperate from the feathers.

    I have another two questions about the rule.
    When serving, do you have to stand behind the service line?
    And... If the server completely misses the serve, what happens? Does the server get a reserve? Or does the opponent get the point?

    Why don't you take a few minutes to read the laws of badminton if you play it regularly? An attempt to hit the shuttle by the server constitutes a fault if he misses, and you do have to stand behind the short service line.

    I have a question too. On the pdf it says:

    "The waist shall be considered to be an imaginary line round the body,
    level with the lowest part of the server’s bottom rib;"

    Is that the last bone of your ribcage? I thought the waist was like, to where your torso becomes legs.

    yes it is the last bone of the ribcage, the lowest rib that is present. if you have a high waist then your in luck for serving if not well you can work around it. but yes the waist is located at your lowest most rib.

    Wow. Thats bullcrap. Then our whole league has no freakin idea where the waist is then. This one girl kept telling me I needed to go under the waist, and I was down to my legs almost. ARGH!

    if im not mistaken this was recently amended into it so not to long ago. but yeah alot of players still try to call me on it and have to tell them about the rules and show them where my waist is since i have a high waist so works to my advantage.

    but yeah like watch some of the international matches look at how "high" they are serving it, heres 2 examples:
