UCT staff and students who are keen to pit their racket skills against each other are invited to enter the 2nd UCT Closed Racketlon championships, to take place at the university on Sunday 24 August.
Whether you're a squash pro or simply enjoy knocking a ball across a table tennis board in your garage, Racketlon (where players face off against each other in four racket sports: badminton, squash, table tennis and tennis) might just be for you.
Each Racketlon match contains four sets '“ one in each sport. While each set is played to 21 points, as in table tennis, the overall winner is not determined by who wins the most sets, but by which player scores the most points.
The winner is hailed as the best all-round racket player.
Last year's event was the first of what UCT hopes will be an annual competition. Tsu-Shiuan Lin, who won the men's title, and Kirsten Porter, who triumphed in the women's division, were rewarded with slots at the 2013 SA Open Racketlon championships.
