The question of who has a "higher duty of care" sounds like an issue for legal advice, in which case a licensed attorney might be the best source. The following answer is not legal advice, but a general statement about the responsibility of Taekwondo officials.
Ultimately, everything that occurs during a Taekwondo event is the responsibility of those who host the event, with the tournament host, and/or director at the head of that chain. Within any particular ring, and during a match, the center referee is in charge of match management, and the one who is primarily responsible for enforcing the rules of safety.
There are three parts of a tennis racquet. The part that you hold is the "grip". Above the grip is the "neck". Someone who holds their tennis racket by the neck is said to be "choking" their racquet; this is not the correct way to play. The part that you hit the ball with (and the largest part of the racquet) is called the "head". The part makes up the head is the "rim". As for a badminton racquet, I would assume that it's very similar.
Badminton debuted in the Olympics at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona. The 2008 Games will be the 5th that badminton has been competed. 4 events, namely the Singles and Doubles for Womens and Men was held in 1992 and in 1996, Mixed Doubles was included in Atlanta Olympics.
If you mean line judges, if they point at the line that means the shot is in, if they spread their hands out, the shot went out. If you still have a question, ask away.
Badminton first appeared as a non-medal sport at the 1972 Games in Munich.
It was not played again for 20 years until, at the 1992 Games in Barcelona, badminton debuted as a medal sport and has been included in Olympic sport ever since.
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.
you can play doubles or singles. There is not really any "role". you just do what you want, without fouling etc.
A double elimination tournament means you have to lose twice before being eliminated from the competition. If you lose once, you are sent to the "losers' bracket". In the losers' bracket you are allowed to continue competing against other teams that have also lost once. If you lose a second time you are eliminated. The winner of the losers' bracket places third in the overall competition.

UK size ten would usually be about an eleven or some times ten it depends if you have a fat foot.
One can find out how to write an invitation letter by looking up other invitationals for the same type of event. Once one has gotten some kind of idea in their head as to how to go about it, one can personalize it to their event.
Badminton is a game that uses rackets to hit a shuttlecock back and forth over a net. It can be played by two opposing players or opposing pairs.
You continue playing until someone wins by 2.
Often, there is a number to stop at when the first person to get that point wins.
ex. Game to 21, win by 2 to 30. This means, they'd go win by 2 until 30. The 1st person to get to 30 wins and there is no rally after.
If it is in a match, it is best out of 3, so you cannot have a tie.
An umpire is in charge of the game.
Agility is important in badminton because when you fail a shot you have to pick the shuttlecock back up off the floor.
Difficult to say. For whatever reason, badminton has largely been popular in Asia and in Great Britain, as well as amongst upper-class elites in the United States. I am told that the sport is finally becoming more popular in Africa, but it has not yet become popular enough to know the names of top players. I am also told that there are a few black players in Canada who compete at a high level.
Badminton is played like tennis, singles or doubles.
Badminton is played in singles and doubles. In singles one player on each side of the mat and in doubles two players on each side of the mat. Thus the number of players may be 2 or 4 depending on singles or doubles.
