About RACKETLON

Racketlon is a sport aimed at finding the best overall Racket Sports Player. It involves playing Table

Tennis, Badminton, Squash and then Tennis against your opponent – each sport being played to 21

points, one after the other, with the winner being the player who scores the greatest overall number

of points across all 4 sports.

 

Racketlon is growing in popularity all over Europe (currently played in over 40 countries) and for the

first time ever, Malta will host a World Tour Racketlon event this October at the Marsa Club.

However, there are categories for all abilities and all ages: from the experts to complete beginners.

Anyone and everyone are able to enter. It is a tournament for all of Malta.

All Maltese Racket Sports enthusiasts should come and give Racketlon a go! Even if you haven’t

played all of the individual Racketlon sports before, this is a great opportunity to have a fantastic,

fun day of sport.

 

Players from Malta have a choice to either enter:

  • The Malta Open World Tour Event where they will get to play against different players from

all over the world (although it’s important to note that the international players will all be of

different abilities and varying ages – so even in the World Tour Event there will be a category to suit

your ability. See below.)

  • A special, Malta only category as a Taster Event in order to give people the opportunity to

try Racketlon out for the first time in a very relaxed, social atmosphere. See details below.
