    It basically means "do-over". So when the umpire says "play a let", it means "replay the last rally".

    Usually used in cases of ambiguity or interference, like if a line judge doesn't see where the shuttle lands, or if a shuttle from another court comes in during play.

    The must common let cases, imo, are when the server serves while the receiver is not ready. This is a let and the point is reserved.

    Also a good example. If the server serves when the receiver isn't ready, then the umpire calls a let, and the server serves again.

    Exactly, then you replay the last rally.

    Also if you nth are arguing over wheter or not the shuttle lands in or out in a game without a umpire the players can decide to play a "let" so that the point Is replayed

    never ask for your own thread to be a sticky because it won't work

    There's that, and also in this case I'd wager 99% of people know what let means. Not everything can be stickied...

    agreed 99.9% of badminton players understand the concept of a "let" and even if they didn't know what the definition of a let is they would still probaly know when it was used or they have probaly still used it without knowing it was called a let
