The Official Shuttlecock (featherball) | Posted on: 01/02/2004

The Official Featherball used in the sport of Shuttlecock consists of 4 equal length goose or duck feathers conjoint at a plastic base. It weights approximately 15 grams. The total length of the ball is 15 to 18 cm. The feathers vary in color, usually dyed red yellow, blue or green. However, in competitions the white colored featherball is preferred.

The diameter of the plastic base is 4 cm. 5 to 7 paper or leather washers are placed at the rubber part so to ensure the flexibility and the smooth course of the ball. (At the bottom side of the plastic base there are lumps which assist the contact of the featherball with the player’s shoe.)

In Chinese terminology, the Official featherball is called “Jianqiu”.
