What to Watch on Day One | Racketlon World Championships

The FIR Racketlon World Championships 2022 begins on Friday with a full day of Juniors and Seniors Teams action.

There will be four gold medals up for grabs on the opening day, as just under half of the Teams categories are completed.

The Juniors U18 Teams gold medal will be decided by the middle of the afternoon – the first to be awarded. A jam-packed schedule means that the Seniors +40, +55 and +65 medals will be decided late into the evening.

The day is dominated by Teams action as it returns to the World Championships for the first time since 2019. The tournament was cancelled in both 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The five other Juniors and Seniors Teams categories will all begin on Friday. All matches aside from the finals will be played on Friday. The finals for the Juniors U12, U13, U16 and U18 categories, as well as the Seniors +45 Teams, will take place on Saturday.
