· Goal of game: Best of three games; 15 points wins men’s games, 11 points wins women’s games; scoring is only when serving, and when, 1) having hit the shuttle over the net and onto the floor of the opposing side’s court; 2) your opponent hits the shuttle into the net or out of bounds; 3) the shuttle hits the opponents’ clothing; or 4) the shuttle is hit by your opponent before it crosses the net.

Bottom line: The game is much like tennis.
