RACQUETS OR RACKETS

Source: Outdoor Sports and Games
Category: ONE HUNDRED OUTDOOR GAMES





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.
