Who in sport would have a higher duty of care?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

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.

What are the parts of a racket?

Asked by Wiki User

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.

What is the scoring system in badminton?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

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.

What the formula of double elimination tournament?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

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.

How does the badminton work?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

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.

Who is the most famous black badminton player?

Asked by Wiki User

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.
