Raqball, here is a strange name!… And yet, everything is in the title. Practiced with rackets and a ball in teams of six players (three on the field and three substitutes), the game can be played on any surface. Hence its attraction to interest all audiences, all ages too.

Raqball which, in order to develop, can rely on three structures: the startup Rzball Company, which develops mobile raqball equipment, the International Raqball Federation responsible for filing and protecting official regulations for this practice, and the French Federation whose mission is to develop the practice of leisure, future clubs and raqball competitions.
