Laws of Badminton - Fixed Service Height Experiments

Following a positive trial at the World Championships in Paris in 2010, and the conclusion of the Olympic Games 2012, Badminton World Federation would like to undertake trials of a fixed service height. These should be domestic (non-World Ranking) tournaments and be agreed with BWF in advance. In order to enable this, an experimental law is necessary to run in parallel with the existing laws in order to validate the trial events. An appropriate ‘measuring tool’ will be developed for use at tournaments conducting trials and sent to Member Association’s conducting trials by BWF.
BWF Council agreed the adoption of the following Law of Badminton and consequent Recommendation To Technical Officials (RTTO):
