We are very excited to announce that in May we will be running “What Is Racketlon” Month, a campaign to increase the awareness of racketlon globally.
The campaign will run throughout the month of May and culminate with the World Doubles Championships in Belgium on the final two days of the month.
The campaign serves two purposes. Firstly, we are looking to increase racketlon’s profile, targeting table-tennis, badminton, squash and tennis communities to introduce them to our sport, get them talking about it and discover how they can get involved.
Second, we are looking to provide an exciting and engaging build-up to the World Doubles Championships for our current Racketlon community.
In order for our campaign to be successful, we need you, the racketlon community, to help us out.
How can you help us out?
We have produced, along with the help of a number of members of the racketlon community, various exciting pieces of social media content which will be posted throughout the month of May – we want this content to be seen by as many racket sports lovers as possible.
This is where you come in.
You can help us out simply by interacting with this content and this is the best way to do it:
Simply hitting the “SHARE” button, leaving a comment or tagging your friends are the 3 best, most effective things you can do.
Tag your teammates, your training partners and encourage them to do the same.
Re-posting in as many places as possible (sports forums, club pages etc) will also all be really effective.
Although hitting the “LIKE” button is good, just doing that on its own is not nearly as effective as all the above.
“This is the chance for us to come together as a community”
And if you’re not on social media, then simply take a moment to email this link: “What Is Racketlon” to your friends, club contacts and teammates.
“This is the start of a big push by the FIR to get more people talking about and playing Racketlon. We hope the whole Racketlon community will get behind “What is Racketlon Month” throughout May – it’s the start of the FIR’s long-term plan to raise the profile of the sport. There are so many racket sports fans out there who will love Racketlon – this is the chance for us to come together as a community to help reach these people!” Duncan Stahl / FIR President.
Lastly, if anybody would like to contribute an article to Racketlon.net during this period, about Racketlon and why they love it, then please contact me, Sam Barker, as soon as possible: firstname.lastname@example.org.
