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:

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.
