  • Subtract your handicap from 36. This becomes the "quota" that you must meet. You get 8 points for an eagle, 4 points for a birdie, 2 points for a par, 1 point for a bogie. These are gross scores on each hole. The goal is to get more points than your quota. The person with the MOST points OVER their quota wins.

Example; You are a 16 handicap. 36 minus 16 is 20. 20 is your quota. If you get 6 pars times 2 and 9 bogies times 1, you have 12 + 9 = 21 points. You beat your quota by +1.

  • The formula "36 minus handicap" is OK if all the participants' handicaps are for a course rating of 72. If contestants are playing different tees with different course ratings a better formula would be "36 minus handicap plus 72 minus course rating for tees played and where handicap was established." Example: Player A has a 0 handicap from the front tees, CR 66. Player B has a 0 handicap from the back tees, CR 72. With the conventional formula they would both have a quota of 36 points, but if both shot their handicap A would get +6 points and B would get 0. With the better formula both would get 0 points.

Each time you hit someone on the "on target" you get a point. Very simple.

Rally scoring is when there is a point scored on every play, regardless of who served, as opposed to side out scoring where the team that serves is the only team that can get a point.

there are two ways as of now, old scoring system (service point??) and new scoring system (rally point), which is just introduced last year and now it's approved by the IBF. Using the old scoring system, you get a point only if your side serves and wins the rally. You have two serving chance (first/second serve) except when the game begins. The new scoring system, you get a point regardless your side serves or not. And there is no second serve. You only serve once. You can google with "Laws of Badminton" and it will give you more details.

The current scoring system in badminton is the 3 x 21 rally point scoring system. This means that matches are played to 21 points, with a required 2 points difference between scores.
