    Double question;

    When serving do both feet have to be behind the short service area?

    or can you have one foot just behind the short service area and stretch, making it harder for the opponent?

    And can you have one foot in the right side and one in the left side (being in the middle)? Or is it both feet have to remain in your serve area? :confused:

    Lol, :p (newbie)

    Hi

    Welcome to BC
    first of all just a quick advice, please do some searrching before creating a new thread.

    Both feet will have to remain on the ground in your area. If you want you can tip toe.

    If you want more info dont hesitate to ask but search before hand and you can check the laws of badminton from: http://www.badmintonengland.co.uk/core/core_picker/download.asp?id=1521

    Both feet has to be behind the front line and on the same side, so no standing across the middle. Both feet has to touch the ground throughout the service.

    do not touch the line

    both feet must be in constant touch with the floor (goes for server and receiver) and must be inside the service (receivers) court - if any of feet touches the line it is a fault !!
