Badminton players perform different kind of court movements for hit the shuttlecock and back to court centre as fast as possible and wait for the opponent shot to hit the shuttle back. For that reason, they need to move around the court in acyclic way and perform an excellent footwork that enables them a wide range of movements in every direction. The aim of this work is quantify badminton lunges (to the net and to the deep court zone) performed on Badminton World Championship and identify shots associated to the court movements. For that purpose, 18 matches were analysed using the Badminton Observational Tool (BOT). It was carried out a univariate and bivariate descriptive analysis through chi-square test and simple correspondence analysis. Results show left and right large diagonal backward lunges as the commonest court movements (Z5Z10 and Z8Z1), while left large diagonal forward and right short diagonal backward were the least common court movements (Z5Z12 and Z5Z1). High-hand shots were performed predominately when player plays the shuttle from the deep zone court, while for the net zone court, the most commons shots performed were those which low-hand is needed and the most skilled ones considered. These considerations could be taken into account by coaches and players to perform better tactical training.
