Club Towers Racketlon 2023 is here! 2nd September.
Our fourth annual Racketlon tournament takes place on Saturday 2nd September 2022 from 11am to 6pm, and will appeal to anyone who loves their racquet sports!
What is Racketlon?
In a nutshell you play table tennis, badminton, squash and tennis. Each sport is played to 21 points and the player with the most points across all sports wins. This relatively simple description hides a wonderful sport filled with intricacy, mental pressure, tactics and a huge amount of fun. Ultimately in Racketlon, every point counts and that makes it an intriguing, exciting and fantastic sport to play. Here’s a link with more information on the official UK Racketlon game (https://www.racketlon.co.uk/).
The Club Towers Racketlon
The Club Towers Racketlon doesn’t include badminton, as we do not offer this at the Club. In the first three years we substituted racketball for badminton to make up the four sports, alongside squash, tennis and table tennis. This year, as a trial, we are reducing the number of sports to three only – Tennis, Squash and Table Tennis – to try to encourage more entrants and provide a more level playing field between the tennis and squash players. Our shorter format event plays to 11 points for each sport, making at least 44 points contested between each player, with a sudden death point at 10-10. The tournament is planned as:
Group stage: 4 groups / 5 per group / games to 11 points / top two qualify for quarter-finals
Entry is £5 and you can sign up at Reception. If you have any questions or you’d like to find out more please email Steve on [email protected]BACK TO EVENTS
