# Thread: For Singles, when to stand at which court ?

1. ## For Singles, when to stand at which court ?

In singles game of badminton, when do i know where to stand ? If the server's point is even, the receiver stand at his right ? And when the server's point is odd, the receiver stand on his left ?

2. If its even, stand on right...? If odd, stand on left...? Its the same as the server since he or she has to serve to the opposite court. Or is there something about your question that I don't understand?

Sorry. I mean in singles game, on each side, there is 2 service court. How do each player know when to stand on their left and when to stand on their right ?

4. Even points on the Right and Odd points on the Left. And that's to the server. Receiver will stand diagonally to the Server.

And incidently it's just the same in doubles.

isn't that what i said? odd on the left, even on the right...server serves diagonal.

7. Its pretty simple really. Its your service and you are winning 10 - 1. your score is even so stand on the right hand court.

You win the point so its now 11 - 1. Your score is odd so stand on the left hand court.

If opponent wins the point, its now 2 - 11 so his score is even so stand in right hand court.

The server determines where you stand. If servers score is even, both players stand in their right side court. If servers score is odd, both players stand in left side court

Simples

8. Yeah easy way i remember even number right,(im right handed ) somehow makes it easier to remember. Odd number left

9. If you are the SERVER then if you have an:

Even number score (0-2-4-6-8-10-12-14-16-18-20)
You stand in the right box

Odd number score (1-3-5-7-9-11-13-15-17-19)
You stand to the left box

If you are the RECEIVER then just stand diagonally to the SERVER, but just in case your opponent is trying to confuse you or cheat you (I don't know how they could; maybe he or she prefers to serve at a certain box), if you are the RECEIVER and your opponent has an :

Even number score:
You stand in the right box

Odd number score:
You stand in the left box

Pretty much just pay attention to the SERVER'S point

Hopefully I made it clear.
