-Mise en place:

  • One player stands on either side of the net just behind the short-service line in a doubles serve/serve receive position–can also be played on a narrow (half) court to accommodate more people on the court.


  • Regular badminton rules apply with two significant differences.

    • Only a short serve into regular court is permitted.

    • Following the serve the short service line becomes the back of the court

  • The bird must land inside the very short court or inside the area in the back of the court.

-Questions et notes:

  • Variations:

    • Long game: [maybe this should be the main game or all of these games should go under short game]. Play as with short and long game but after the service only the back court is considered in–requires good hitting ability (If this is too difficult add a line closer to the net to increase the size of the back court). 

    • Doubles Short long and wide: Play in doubles as with Short and Long Game but after the service the two side areas between the single’s side line and the double’s side line is also in play.      

  • As a cool-down

    • This game plus its variations work well for a cool-down when they are played with 2 players per side (with the exception of Long Game which can be played with 1 player a side).
