The game can be easily set up on any stretch of grass, no country club membership required. Since Wimbledon’s the only Grand Slam event played on grass, it seemed fitting to stake our net in the lawn and team up two against one for a rousing round of Canadian doubles. Starting with the game’s first few gestures, badminton sets itself apart from tennis with the mechanics of the serve. While an overhead serve is the way to go in tennis, badminton requires an underarm motion. When serving, the racquet can only make contact with the shuttlecock below the waist, around the top of the server’s Sunday Shorts, in order to eligibly start the rally.
