The FIR are very excited to be working closely with the recently formed Racketlon India Sports Association (RISA) and their President Mr K. Cheema, who visited the World Championships in Zurich in August.
During his visit to Zurich Mr K.Cheema met with a number of the FIR Council and also made a short presentation at the FIR AGM about RISA’s plans to develop Racketlon in India over the next few years. Mr K.Cheema also brought with him to Zurich RISA’s main promoter and sponsor, Mr Krishna Kotak who is chairman of J.M. Baxi Group of Companies and who has been a great help and inspiration to everything that RISA have done and will continue to do for Racketlon in India.
The potential for Racketlon in India is huge. Racket sports in India are growing rapidly in popularity: the World Junior Squash Championships were held in India this year and India is currently seen as one of squash’s biggest growing markets. Likewise in Table Tennis, huge success at the 2018 Commonwealth Games saw Table Tennis reach new heights of exposure and national awareness but it is with badminton that there has been a complete transformation.
