I guess it's interpretation of the rules then
I think although it passed the side of the net, it still is "under" the net
What if it was inside the poles? (some gyms the poles are 2-3 feet away from the sidelines)
Does pole location determine the length of the "net" and how this shot is interpreted?

I would be quite happy for an opponent to hit one of my shots that is obviously out of bounds - thus giving me another chance to win the point.
I think that if the off court shot was a foul - net posts would continue much higher to spot "around the net fouls".
2.2 Where it is not practical to have posts on the side lines, some method must be used to indicate the position of the side lines where they must pass under the net, e.g., by the use of thin posts or strips of material 11/2" (40mm)wide,fixed to the side lines and rising vertically to the net cord

This exact topic was discussed at my coach part 1 course. The instructors -- these are people who teach coaches, don't forget -- were clear about the issue: it is legal. You can hit it round the side.
It barely matters anyway. In this situation, the shot is obviously out. His judgement was poor

The shot was perfectly legal !!!
as far as I am concern as long as the birdie does not touch the ground the play is still on.

The shot is legal. The net does not represent a never-ending barrier dividing each half of the court.
Btw, the shot is legal in tennis as well. Especially now, with players looking to hit the ball at very acute angles, I've had more than one opportunity to squeeze a shot around the post but below net level. It's actually easier in tennis, even though the net extends past either side of the court.

Hmmmm, interesting dialogue here. Learn something new everyday.

the shuttle must pass the area above the net. some more in this case, it was 2 feet under the net, no way it can be considered in.
a bit off topic, but in volleybal, the same thing applies. you can hit the ball wherever but it must cross the area above the net only...

In tennis, you can hit the ball after a bounce, therefore the ball can be well wide of the court. Therefore, the understanding of this rule is very important.
In contrast, this rule is not that important in badminton. If the shuttle is landing clearly out, then the point should be yours anyway. If you still want to hit it, you're just giving your opponent another chance. Unless you are talking about very strong draft, which will eventually blow the shuttle in, in which case you should not be playing there.

Ho ho ho, I concede then, I'm at fault-- no way so many BCers could be wrong. Intersting though!

My opinion: UNLESS the shuttle passes through the red area AND lands INSIDE the court, it is a fault.

the rule says going under or through "the net" is illegal, not "a line at the height of the net extending between the two sides of the court". also consider that the net is higher at the sides than at the middle. which height would u use as your imaginary height?
the point is that it counts, but it would probably never be seen in a proper competitive match so more exact rules haven't been made (such as for the S serve), but one should still try to follow the common interpretation of the rules. anybody want to ask JR about his take?

Man, I'm getting a headache. If I was in this situation and couldn't come to an agreement, I would just play the point over.
