Badminton court covers
Our fixed domes provide an affordable alternative to permanent buildings for indoor badminton courts.
If you’re looking to enhance your offering with the addition of all-weather badminton courts, or upgrade existing facilities with brand new covers, we can help.
We can provide a covered structure to your exact specifications and if you need help constructing your badminton courts from scratch, then we can prepare the groundwork for you and fit out pavilions, surface courts and install lights and nets.
Badminton is typically played indoors because wind can affect the flight of the shuttlecock, which has a ‘skirt’ made from feathers or plastic attached to a cork or foam base to create drag in the air.
We can provide covers to suit all types of badminton courts, whether you need one small dome for a single court or a large cover for a series of courts.
We also offer telescopic covers and multi-use sports halls.
Safe and long lasting
All our badminton structures are designed in accordance with British Standards Building Regulations for snow and wind loadings, while the high-tensile steel frames are hot dip galvanised to offer protection against corrosion. Glulam wood frames are also available.
Fire doors are also included, while the covers of the domes are made from heavy-duty, flame-retardant, PVC-coated polyester fabric.
Although our fixed domes feature sliding side curtains as standard, we can also fit curtains at the gable ends should you require more flexibility in windy conditions.
Second membrane skins can be added for extra protection against heat loss, while bespoke lighting solutions ensure play can continue into the evening.
Additional markings and equipment can be included to create a multi-sport environment.
Telescopic domes offer a flexible solution, allowing courts to be covered quickly and easily in the event of wind or rain. Sections are pulled back by hand or electronically in less than a minute.
Badminton court construction & layout
If you’re looking to build covered courts from scratch we offer a full badminton court construction service from assistance with planning, bespoke desgin and through to installation and maintenance. We’ll also advise on surfaces before installation and help ensure every dimension is right for the regulations.
Badminton court layout
Standard badminton courts are rectangular in shape, with a full width of 6.1 metres and a full length of 13.4 metres. They are divided into two halves by a net 1.55 metres high.
Badminton courts are typically marked for both singles and doubles play, with the exception of some designed solely for singles matches.
Like a tennis court, each half of a badminton court contains a left and right service box. However, in badminton, these boxes are located at the back of the court, not at the front on either side of the net.
Each half also contains a short service line 1.98 metres from the net and, for doubles matches only, a long service line 0.76 metres from the back boundary.
In singles games, the long service line sits on the back boundary, while the sidelines reduce the width of the court to 5.18 metres.
