Playing crossminton is easy – you need another player, a couple of rackets, some shuttles and some space to set up a court. For recreational play, you can make up your own rules and your own courts, although we advise you to read the instructions below.
Setting up a court is even easier and can be done anywhere without any real tools or equipment. If you have yellow match shuttles (speeders®) you only need to set up two courts of 5,5 x 5,5 m each, with 12,8 metres of empty space separating them.
Net? No, there is no net.
Court markers? 8 stones can do the job.
Wind? In case of a tornado, you will not be able to play.
Same goes for the red fun shuttles (speeders®), which are slower, so the courts are 4 x 4 metres, with 9 metres of empty space separating them.
The objective of the game is to score points by either making a point (shuttle hits the ground inside the opponents court) or forcing the opponent into making a mistake (not returning the shuttle into your court). Players serve in intervals of 3 consecutive serves each, the serve is made as a below-wrist shot. To win a set, a player needs to score 16 points. To win a match, a player needs to win 2 sets. Doubles can also be played by the same rules and in the same courts.
