What is Racketlon?
In Racketlon, you play your opponent in TABLE TENNIS, BADMINTON, SQUASH and then TENNIS. Each sport is played to 21 points: the player with the most points across all four sports wins the Racketlon match.
It is a amazing sport for all racket sports enthusiasts! Every point in every sport counts towards your final score. Therefore, there are a lot of tactics, mental pressure and fun to be had in every match. All Racketlon tournaments have classes for all abilities and all ages, so they are open to everyone to play: from beginners to elite players.
Racketlon began in Sweden and Finland over 30 years ago and has continued to grow across the globe. In the US there have been a number of local tournaments over the years. Cliff Wenn organized a tournament at the Maugus club in 2007. Tim Bacon, former squash coach at Smith, hosted a small “taster” tournament in 2009. Shona Kerr, head squash coach at Wesleyan University, even has a Racketlon class! A tournament was also organized at the University of Oregon in 2012 as a fundraiser.
The first officially sanctioned tournament in the US was held in April of 2017 at Smith College in Northampton, MA. The tournament was just held for its 3rd consecutive year. Check out the most recent results.
