RAQBALL IN CLUB SPORTS AND ASSOCIATIONS
RAQBALL is a new team sport created in France that is played with rackets and a ball, in teams of 6 players (3 in play and 3 replacements) on a court 20 m by 10 m in size.
The duration of a match is 20 minutes, played in 4 periods of 5 minutes each.
Without contact between players, the aim is to attack the opposing team’s target and score points, whilst defending your own target.
A sport in its own right, it is also an excellent addition to other individual and team sport to:
- Work on the footwork in a fun way.
- Optimise movements.
- Boost the cardiovascular performance thanks to the speed of the game.
- Improve accuracy under stress by working on the main and peripheral visions.
- Strengthen team cohesion.
- Improve the recovery of an injured athlete, helping their confidence and sporting potential in safety thanks to the non-contact nature of the game.
The portable equipment for RAQBALL fits in two cases, allowing an easy and quick deployment on any type of surface.
IN FRANCE, MANY EVENTS WITH RAQBALL HAVE ALREADY TAKEN PLACE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH LOCAL AUTHORITIES, AS WELL AS WITH ENTITIES IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR. THEY HAVE GENERATED A REAL BUZZ OF INTEREST!
Very pleasantly surprised and happy to have discovered Raqball. A new team racket sport created 100% here in France’s Alpes-Maritimes, and developed by a young start-up based in Sophia-Antipolis. The equipment required to play the game, designed to be easily portable, is assembled in a factory in Antibes employing personnel with disability. Several local authorities in the Alpes-Maritimes have already chosen Raqball for their schools.

Raqball is a leisure activity that allows the development of key technical, tactical and physical abilities. The club offers this activity for novices to discover tennis, and as physical training for experienced tennis players.
Samia Medjahdi, Manager, La Raquette Tennis Club
I find it extraordinary to be able to practice the activity on any surface, to adapt to the terrain. It is a group racket sport that I use as much in my teaching for all audiences as in the training of competitive players. It should be noted that the equipment we use is of exceptional quality.
Olivier Roux, Manager, the Caporoux Tennis Coaching Academy
I had the opportunity to discover Raqball at a sports event organised by the Olympic Committee. Raqball is entirely suited and of interest to rugby. With this game you can work on stances, speed, avoidance actions, movements and peripheral vision. We would like to develop it within our own structures to allow our juniors to take advantage of all its techniques.

RAQBALL IN THE MEDIA
THE PORTABLE COURT EQUIPMENT FOR RAQBALL CAN BE USED ON ANY TYPE OF EXISTING SPORT SURFACE
Installing, building or extending traditional sport facilities always requires a full or partial acquisition of land, as well as important financial commitments.
With RAQBALL, thanks to its portable court equipment that is easy to dismantle, any surface can be prepared for the game without alterations.
