    for the service judge, it easier to figure out whether a service is above waist-level than whether it is below 1.2m.
    this idea is just ridiculous.
    Really? all they would need is a solid board in front of the service judge at said height. Service judges eye level sit at top of board. If line judge can see contact with shuttle then fault, it's full proof. Maybe need a chin rest so there is no bobbing of the head

    My "Yes" or "No" would depend on just one answer:
    Will it improve Cheng Wen Hsing's serve?

    agree. in fact, that is a good idea!

    they do need to calibrate it very carefully beforehand with a spirit level, etc. etc.

    Yes, and once he's correctly seated, strap him down tight, pin him in place with duct tape, so that he cannot shift and send all the calibration out the window. Since we don't want any error after all this effort, he will just have to co-operate...

    Mixed doubles can be a back breaker sometimes. You got to be moving your chair and body sideways to see the shuttle.

    Hi

    So if there is no "below the waist" requirement any more - so does it mean I can sit on my ass and hit an round-the-head stroke with my rasket slightly pointing down?


    Woooooooowwwwwww !!!

    Valentinas

    PS. I am totally not serious

    Ok, I am at a junior tournament with other officials and I discussed this topic with them. Not too much info out there, they will be testing this in select countries (not sure which ones yet). Apparently there is some sort of equipment (I'm not sure what it is either) that will be given to service judges to enforce this rule.

    how about laser sights that can only been seen with nightvision goggles, but in our case, with a pair of special glasses, so that the laser sight is not seen by anyone else but the service judge and/or the umpire who's wearing the special glasses, that way the players won't be distracted by the laser.

    Firstly this sounds cool But everyone serves from a different position, think mixed doubles. So it would have to be a horizontal wall of laser at 1.2m covering at least the first 2/3 of the court on both sides. Sound really cheap and doable.....

    Why should the laser be only seen by the service judge and umpire? I think that horizontal wall of laser criss crossing should also be visible to spectators, like in those jewel heist movies where the protected area is covered with laser.
