service fault question
Alright so I came across this problem while someone was playing. So it was 3rd game and the score was 23-22. The person serves and the rally went on normally until that person won the point bring the game to 24-22 (won). But apparently both players didn't notice that they were standing on the wrong side in the beginning of the serve until later. So I was wondering what the official international badminton rule would have to say about this. who gets the point and etc.?

I believe he has to give you the point. It's an illegal serve = you

12 SERVICE COURT ERRORS
12.1 A service court error has been made when a player:
12.1.1 has served or received out of turn; or
12.1.2 has served or received from the wrong service court;
12.2 If a service court error is discovered, the error shall be corrected and the existing score shall stand.
The score stays so the guy who won, won.

Yep, it's not considered a fault. It should be fixed as soon as it's noticed but in reality, it should not have affected the outcome of the point so no fault.

YEEE I usually see judges giving reminder if players are standing on the wrong side but because this is amateur level it's hard to monitor. Thx for clearing that for me guys!

Good to bring this up. Also good for BWF to review the rules regularly.
