Whether you’re trying to set up your own badminton court or just want to know for fun or educational purposes, let’s get down to the details of the size of a badminton court! I already have a post that details the dimensions of a badminton court and some strategies but this post will give the details specifically in feet and be very concise.

A full badminton court is 20 feet wide and 44 feet long. This is used for doubles and mixed doubles.

A singles badminton court is 17 feet wide and 44 feet long. The singles court has a smaller width because the side alleys are not used in singles and are considered out of bounds.
