Racketlon is a sport that combines tennis, badminton, squash and table tennis into one sport. It is the racketsports' answer to other combination sports such as Trianthlon or Decathlon. Very commonly played in Europe, opponents play each of teh sports to 21 points and the winner is the person with the highest total points. Racketlon is also played in a doubles format where a team of two opponents play against each other. This class will introduce students to each of the four racketsports and how to play them in combination within the sport of Racketlon. As a capstone experience the class will culminate in playing both a singles racketlon and a doubles racketlon. Previous racketsport experience will be valuable in this class, although not required.
