    Default Singles low serve, shuttle touches white tape and lands in opponents service box.

    Hi all

    In a singles game, I do a low backhand serve.

    The shuttle travels over the net, touches the white tape slightly, and lands inside the opponents service box.

    Is that considered my point ? I would think so.

    My opponent argues that during serve, it should not touch the white tape (in play it is allowed), but not during serve, and thus he did not take it and it landed in his service box.

    Please share with me your thoughts.

    I'm sorry if this has been discussed earlier, did not find the post.

    Thanks

    it is your point as you think it is.

    unlike tennis, in badminton play continues when the shuttle strikes the white tape on service. afterall, it is the server's fault if it strikes the tape and didn't make the service court!
