- Torques is the off-court racquet sport you've been waiting for. Play anywhere from the park to your backyard, on the grass or (our favorite) on the beach. Torques is sure to take your breath away.
No Court Needed. Play anywhere with enough room. Beach, Park, Backyard, Anywhere!
Easy to learn & especially easy if you've played a racquet sport before.
Torques is played with tennis racquets. Yes, any tennis racquet will work with the Torque Shuttle.
Torques is designed to be played with normal tennis racquets. We did this on purpose to keep the cost of entry minimal. If you have racquets, all you need is a tube of Shuttles to get started!
For example, Tennis is the sport & Wilson is the brand. Torques is the sport & VØST is the first brand of the sport. Oh YEAH, we believe this sport is going global BIG!
Our simple vision is to help people find health & happiness through an active lifestyle of playing Torques. Our grand vision is that Torques is a global sport & played in the Olympics.
Being contained to a court is boring. We like to be able to play outside of the box. Think different. BE different. Play Torques.
Our patented shuttle (the magic behind this new sport) resembles a birdie from badminton, but don't be fooled, it zooms through the air much differently.
Technology plays an essential part of this sport. From the development of the Shuttle to the innovative option of scoring with the T2 Torques timer app. "It's Time 2 Score."
The Flyzone is created by the use of the two pairs of nine foot poles slid into anchor tubes that are designed for use in sand or turf. A fair shot is between the poles and between the lines.
The Deadzone is the zone between the players. If you hit into the dead zone it is OUT.
Behind the End Line, in front of the Front Line, on the Line, and into the Poles are all considered OUT.
3 Ways of Scoring
Normal: Either player serves. Serve must be returned to start a valid point. First to a 11 or 21. Win by 2.
T2 Torques Timer: IT'S TIME 2 SCORE with our innovative app that allows for a brand new way of scoring based on time. Either player serves. Serve must be returned to start a valid point. Time starts when served. For example, if the rally lasts 18 Seconds, 18 points are awarded to the winner of the rally. Depending on the time you have & your energy levels, it is first to 50 or 100 seconds for a set. 2/3 sets or 3/5 sets to win the match.
Competitive with Serve: Underhand serve from behind the End Line. Aces are allowed. Only 1 chance to serve. First to 21 wins. First person to serve, serves once. Then you serve twice switching every 2 serves until the set is finished. Win by 2.

Torques is a GREAT workout! If your looking to get into shape & have fun, this is the sport for you. And if you play in the sand, you are pretty much guaranteed to burn those unwanted calories. You can expect to burn between 400-500 calories per hour.
Absolutely. One day Torques will be a professional global sport played in the Olympics as a beach sport. GTO stands for Global Torques Organization. Tennis has the ATP tour & Torques will have the GTO tour. But for now we are focused on getting the sport into as many hands as possible. One day at time is our motto.
We have designed and tested the FlyZone set-up (the flag poles & lines you see in the videos).
