In the summer of 2022, Pakistan will host the badminton world championships for the first time, but other nations may have good reason to worry about badminton in Pakistani schools.
Pakistan's education system is in a state of flux, with many schools struggling to keep up with the country's rapidly changing needs. As a result, some schools have turned to unorthodox methods to stay afloat. In one school in Lahore, for example, students are made to play badminton for two hours every day, regardless of whether they want to or not. The school's headmaster says the sport helps students focus and stay disciplined.
But not everyone is convinced. Some parents say the forced exercise is counterproductive and that their children are being turned into badminton robots.
The situation highlights the challenges Pakistan faces in promoting sports and physical activity in a country where more than half of the population is under the age of 18. With obesity and diabetes on the rise, experts say it is imperative that Pakistan finds ways to get its young people moving.
Rule #1: Sportsmanship
Sportsmanship is an important aspect of any sport, and badminton is no different. Good sportsmanship includes being respectful to your opponents, playing by the rules, and using proper etiquette. It is also important to be a good sport when you win or lose.
Badminton is a sport that is enjoyed by people of all ages and backgrounds. In Pakistan, badminton is a popular sport that is played both recreationally and competitively. There are a few simple rules that should be followed in order to ensure that everyone has a good time and the game is fair.
1. Sportsmanship: Be respectful to your opponents and play by the rules.
2. Equipment: Make sure you have the proper equipment before playing.
3. Warm up: Take some time to warm up before playing. This will help prevent injuries.
4. Cool down: After playing, cool down gradually to avoid cramping or stiffness.
Rule #2: No Contact with Opponent's Head
In badminton, the head is considered to be a part of the body and therefore players are not allowed to hit the head of their opponents with their racket or any other part of their body. If a player does so, they will be penalized. This rule is in place to protect players from injury and to ensure that the game is fair.
Rule #3: No Running While Serving
The third rule on our list is "no running while serving". This may seem like a no-brainer, but you would be surprised how many people try to sneak in a few extra steps while serving. Badminton is a game of quick reflexes and running while serving will only give your opponent an unfair advantage. So, make sure to keep your feet planted firmly on the ground while serving and save the running for when you're chasing down a shot.
Rule #4: No Moving to Lose the Return Serve
When playing badminton in Pakistan, it is important to remember that you cannot move to lose the return serve. This means that if you are serving and your opponent hits the shuttlecock back to you, you must be prepared to hit it back to them. If you move out of the way or try to lose the point, your opponent will automatically win the point.
Rule #5: One Point for Serving Outside the 25 Zones
When serving the shuttlecock, always make sure that it lands within the 25 zones on the court. If it goes outside of these areas, your opponent will be awarded a point. This rule is in place to keep the game fair and to prevent one player from having an advantage over the other.
Rule #6: The Slice Serve is Not Allowed
The slice serve is a valuable tool in badminton, and it's a shame that it's not allowed in Pakistan. The slice serve is a low, slow shot that is difficult to return. It's a great way to keep your opponents off-balance and force them to make mistakes. Unfortunately, the Pakistani Badminton Federation has ruled that the slice serve is not allowed. This ruling is sure to frustrate many players, but we hope that it doesn't last long.
Rule #7: The Shuttlecock Must be Touching at Least One Side of the Court on Return Serve
When returning the shuttlecock on serve, the player must make sure that the shuttlecock touches at least one side of the court. This rule is in place to keep the game fair and to prevent one player from constantly serving without giving the other player a chance to return.
