A Badminton game usually begins with a toss-up where one player (doesn't matter who) will hit the birdie (or shuttlecock) straight into the air and let it fall on the ground. The shuttlecock will roll and whichever side the shuttlecock's head (the end without the feathers) is pointing gets to start the game with a serve.
Of course, you warm up first. This is a great opportunity to see how your opponent serves, plays, and whether she or he is a lefty or a righty!
Well, first, one person spins their racket. If the racket has W and M on the end of it, the person who spins asks the other person to pick a letter. Let's say the other person picks M. The spinner spins their racket and lets it drop to the ground. Looking on the end, the spinner can see if it is M or W. If it is M, the other person has the choice of either serving or recieving first, and the choice of which side to play on. If it is W, the spinner gets those choices.
Then, one person serves. Remember to always say the score loudly (0-0, love all) start serving on the Deuce (right) side!
Each game is played with 21 points, with players scoring a point whenever they win a rally (this differs from the old system, where players could only win a point on their serve). A match is the best of three games.
At the start of the rally, the server and receiver stand in diagonally opposite service courts (see court dimensions). The server hits the shuttlecock so that it would land in the receiver's service court. This is similar to tennis, except that a badminton serve must be hit below waist height and with the racquet shaft pointing downwards, the shuttlecock is not allowed to bounce and in badminton, the players stand inside their service courts unlike tennis.
When the serving side loses a rally, the serve passes to their opponent(s) (unlike the old system, there is no "second serve" in doubles).
In singles, the server stands in his right service court when his score is even, and in his left service court when his score is odd.
In doubles, if the serving side wins a rally, the same player continues to serve, but he changes service courts so that he serves to each opponent in turn. If the opponents win the rally and their new score is even, the player in the right service court serves; if odd, the player in the left service court serves. The players' service courts are determined by their positions at the start of the previous rally, not by where they were standing at the end of the rally. A consequence of this system is that, each time a side regains the service, the server will be the player who did not serve last time.

Countries in east and south-east Asia are well-known for dominating the sport, especially the likes of China and Indonesia, who consistently win the Olympic Games for badminton, the Thomas and Uber Cups Tournament and the All England Championship. The sport may not be the most important game in China as the Chinese excel in many other sports as well. However, in countries like Indonesia and Malaysia, badminton can be regarded as the unofficial national sports since this is the only sport that the two countries really excel in at the international level and pin their Olympic medal hopes almost exclusively on this sport. Chinese, Indonesian, Malaysian and Danish badminton players (both male and female) regularly feature on the top ten list of the best badminton players in the world.
