The T&RA has a well-developed programme of Rackets competitions and tournaments, for both professionals and amateur players – whether they are seasoned members of the global rackets circuit or social players. In any season – which runs from September to June – approximately 500 unique players enter one or more T&RA sponsored tournaments which typically take place in our various member clubs across the country. In addition to this, hundreds of schoolboys and schoolgirls enter the National Public Schools singles and doubles championships which take place in December and April of the academic year. These are staple competitions in the UK Rackets season and have been a constant fixture for the last 125+ years.
The T&RA is one of two National Associations governing Rackets, the other two being the North American Rackets Association (NARA). Together they are responsible for the biannual World Championship challenge. While sponsorship of this event is not within the gift of any one Association, each has an important role when the event is held. The World Championship was last held in 2019, at the Queen’s Club in the UK and at the Detroit Racket Club in the USA.
