Racket Makers



The Beating Heart of the


2014 World Championships



Obviously, we want as many people as possible to be a player at the 2014 Racketlon World Championships, which are now 33 days away with categories for all, so please enter now, with all the information you may require here. You can also support the World Championships financially through our Crowd Funding initiative.




However, It is our aim to make these World Championships a real celebration of racket sports, and the volunteers will be crucial to this.  Leone McKinley, the Queen of the Racket Makers, today makes her call to arms:



"With just over a month to go, there is a flurry of activity amongst the Racket Makers as we prepare for the big event in August.  As well as the strong support we have received from players, and their  friends and family, we have been working with a number of volunteer organisations to enhance the Racket Makers Team.  In particular, we have had a great response from Team London whose willingness to support us has been incredible, not to mention the calibre of volunteers who have signed up to help- ex 2012 Olympic Games Makers and Commonwealth Games volunteers…..we are very lucky to have them!


However, the more volunteers we have the better experience we can offer our players so if anyone else out there is keen to get involved, or if your dragging your family down with you anyway then maybe they might like to offer a few hours support……and we have a number of roles which will offer young people some good work experience including positions on the media desk, Ball person team captains and lots of other general support roles.
