    A shared google doc will be an excellent thing. We can cull questions and answers related to interview.

    Elsewise, if all of us agree, we can create a whatsapp group as well for discussing these questions.

    1.Why do u like to play Badminton?

    2.Rules related to badminton

    3.General information like court length,Racquet and Shuttle specifications,Height of the Net(does this gives advantage to tall players). etc.

    4.Is it a Indoor game or outdoor game? For Indoor is there any limit for ceilings.

    5.Why Racquet is oval shaped, is there any rule for the shape,size and weight of the Racquets and Shuttles? Thickness of the string,Tension of the string(If engg. background do read this all common badminton player like us talk is "Racquet ka taar dheela ho gya h islye shot sahi se nahi lag rha h or thats why I m not able to give my best" what's the reason for this does this help if tension is more what effect does it make etc..)

    6.International Player names,ranking(top3 men and women Singles and Doubles) Indian player names,stadiums/Gymnasium,Famous Teams(PBL)

    7.Why badminton is not so popular though is played by most of us? What can be done to make it popular?

    8.Skirt issue(from shorts to skirts) =>Does this indicates Materialism,patriarchal mindset,Objectifying women etc.

    9.Politics in Badminton..Jwala gutta issue.

    10.Health benefits of playing badminton.


    Ans 1: I play badminton for fun, fitness and developing quick reflexes. It teaches me coordination and team work in doubles and mixed double game.

    Ans 3: The full width of the court is 6.1 metres (20 ft), and in singles this width is reduced to 5.18 metres (17 ft). The full length of the court is 13.4 metres (44 ft). The service courts are marked by a centre line dividing the width of the court, by a short service line at a distance of 1.98 metres (6 ft 6 inch) from the net, and by the outer side and back boundaries. In doubles, the service court is also marked by a long service line, which is 0.76 metres (2 ft 6 inch) from the back boundary. The net is 1.55 metres (5 ft 1 inch) high at the edges and 1.524 metres (5 ft) high in the centre
    Badminton racquets weighing between 70 and 95 grams not including grip or strings. They are composed of carbon fibre composite to solid steel
    Shuttlecock is formed from sixteen overlapping feathers embedded into a round cork base

    Ans 4: It is indoor game. The minimum height for the ceiling above the court is not mentioned in the Laws of Badminton. Nonetheless, a badminton court will not be suitable if the ceiling is likely to be hit on a high serve.

    I shall think about other questions and will add other answers....
    others please contribute
