In basketball, a free throw shooter is given 5 seconds to shoot the ball from the line. Beyond that, he is called for a violation. Is there a similar rule in badminton for a server? I am asking this because I recently played with someone who takes more than 15 seconds to serves the shuttle. It really took out the momentum from my game. If there is a rule against this, i'd definitely let him know. Can anyone help me on this?
