RACQUETS OR RACKETS





One of the numerous court games similar to lawn tennis that is now

finding public favour, but played in a semi-indoor court. A racquet

court is 31 feet 6 inches wide and about 63 feet long. The front wall,

against which the ball is served, has a line 8 or 10 feet from the

floor, above which the ball must strike. The server, as in tennis,

takes his position in a service box with a racket similar to a lawn

tennis racket except that it has a smaller head and a longer handle.



Either two or four players may play racquets. A game consists of

fifteen "aces," or points.
