The height of the hall should be 9.14m (30 feet) at the centre of the court. A hall with a slightly lower roof can be used but it would not be suitable for first class play. Halls of less than 7.62m (25 feet) from the floor at a point over the net, or 6.7m (22 feet) at the baseline, are unsuitable for the game to be played at a reasonable standard.
The background should be uniform in colour. The walls should be finished in medium to dark shades with a matt surface. The floor finish should be dull, not glossy or shiny or slippery. The marking lines should, preferably, be white, but may be yellow if this helps to distinguish them from those used for other sports.
When the court is permanently in use for badminton the best posts to use are those with a metal base that can be screwed to the floor. Alternatively, posts can be obtained with well weighted bases which will hold the net taut at the correct height.
