UK Racketlon

Written by James Pope

The official Racketlon Rules document on Racketlon.net & Racketlon.com, has now been updated with the changes adopted at the AGM. There are three major changes. In short they are the following...

1) SQUASH DOUBLES ORDER BY CHOICE 
The playing order in squash doubles will as of now be decided by each 
pair themselves (which, in most cases, should lead to the two best 
squash players finishing the set). At FIR sanctioned events the order 
shall stay the same during each tournament.

2) NO COACHING DURING PLAY 
Rules about coaching have been introduced; Coaching is from now on 
allowed only during the breaks between sets and at the half time break 
within each set.

3) TENNIS DOUBLES: OPTION TO SWITCH RECEIVING AT 11 
In the tennis doubles set the receiving arrangement (forehand or 
backhand) may now optionally be changed at 11. (Previously each player 
had to keep receiving on the same side during the whole set.)

For full details on the changes made (and rejected proposals) see the 
AGM rules proposals on http://www.racketlon.com/rulesprop08.html 
(Each of the proposal documents has been updated with a record of 
which decision was made at the AGM.)
