    Default Unusual rule query...help!

    Hello

    A query....

    This scenario doesn't need to be on service, but let's say it is for the purposes here...

    Player A serves. The shuttle is heading towards Player B's service box, and just before it drops onto the line (to be called in), Player B swings for it and misses. However, the shuttle is pulled off-course by the gust of air and lands just outside the service box.

    How does one call this?!

    Help appreciated....

    One calls it 'Out', of course.

    Fair enough.

    You think it'd be possible to try incorporate this as a tactic? Or too difficult to do on purpose...?

    Unless you equip yourself with a turbofan-assisted racquet or SuperBreath, it will be quite a challenge to rely on this as a regular tactic.

    Of course, it doesn't hurt to try.

    On the other hand, returning the shuttle might be a more practical idea

    it would be very very difficult to prove the shuttle landing in or out was affected by the racket'g gush of air. It is considered being a part of the game, just like natural air draft floating around the gym. However, if a player purposely blows air to push a falling shuttle out, and if i'm the umpire, i would call a fault, because blowing air on a shuttle, whether it was effective or not, is not part of the game.

    i think unless it happens in an international game, there won't be an explicit rule written on it. but like cooler said, if there's a ref, he/she might give a warning first, and if u do it again, lose the point

    I don't really know how some1 would able to do that every shots. The racquet has holes, to able to create the wind that is strong enough to push the bird goes backward direction. He or she should have a super built body or arm or watever. Go try it if you want, lol, hanging paper? sure. something that is small and heavy as like i don't know, let's say a foam cup, see if you able to make it move with a swing.

    put a paper on one said of the frame... if they serve short, swing the racket to the direction of the paper-side so ud have enough wind to force the shuttle fall before the line...otherwise swing to the other direction and the paper will drop and wont bother the game unless u step on it and slip =p

    lol...pretty pointless to try and use this as a tactic unless you have absolutely pinpoint accuracy and judgment.

    And if the referee can see movement change in the shuttle alot of them will actually call that you have contacted the shuttle.
