I want to compete

Racketlon


A Racketlon is a sport lover’s dream. It requires competitors to play opponents in one set of table tennis, badminton, squash and finally, tennis. Rather than just being four racquet games that have been combined together; Racketlon has become a sport in its own right. The contest is decided on a points system that counts all four sections of the tournament towards your final score. Anyone can compete in Racketlon regardless of age, gender or level. The Wales Racketlon is a friendly sociable competition and people of all abilities across the UK are encouraged to take part.

The Wales Racketlon

The Wales Racketlon has been going for five years. The Cardiff based event is held at the David Lloyd Club and invites competitors and spectators to attend from all across the UK. Categories at the Cardiff tournament are at all levels and include Over 55’s and Under 16’s as well as mixed doubles competitions. Last year over 80 competitors from more than ten countries came to compete giving the event an international flavour. There were over 20 doubles pairings which was a new Challenger record and we hope to see an even greater turnout in this year’s competition.
