A badminton court has two lines that run vertically and two lines that run horizontally. In singles, the court is long and narrow and thus we use the inner two vertical lines and the horizontal back line. Anything that lands within the box or right on those lines is in, and anything outside those lines is out.
Use the stakes and string to lay out and paint the net line, centered along the length of the court and parallel to the back boundaries (short ends). On each half of the court, mark the short service line at 6 feet, 6 inches from the net line, and the long service line at 19 feet, 6 inches from the net line.
