Ancient Games with High Tech "Scoring" Twists!

What are these this new "Ancient" games?

These games draws inspiration from ancient Celtic Culture, but it is far from ancient. Racquet Torques is played with Tennis Racquet, a patented "Birdie" and utilizes a new Rally Sport Scoring Technology housed in our Torques Timer App~ "It's Time to Score!" The seconds of the rally turn into points with a 10 second Rally being worth 10 points, etc. You can play anywhere from the park to your backyard, on the grass or on the beach, it's the Off Court Racquet Sport.

Torques Toss is a fun game much like Cornhole. Toss also helps with the foundational swing machanics of the underhand serve in Torques.

What is the key difference between Racquet Torques & Badminton?

  • Torque shuttles can tolerate far more wind than badminton birdies as Torques are powered by tennis racquets. Torques is introduced to kids and beginners with Torques Toss. Our birds are perfect for being Tossed underhand which is a similar swing machanic to the Torques underhand serve. Torques Toss is a fun game on it's own and also foundational for Racquet Torques. We can also slow pitch birds to young and inexperienced players which is a great way to make contact and get confidenc. See our Pitch Torques video on our YouTube Torques TV.

No Court Needed for Racquet Torques. Play anywhere with about 40 ft of room. Beach, Park, Backyard, Anywhere!

Racquet Torques is sasy to learn & especially easy if you've played a racquet sport before. Toss is a game for practically anyone.

Torques is played with tennis racquets. Yes, any tennis racquet will work with the Torque Shuttle.

Do you own a tennis racquet already?

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! Take your racquet skills and show them off almost anywhere.

Torques is powered by VØST

For example, Tennis is the sport & Wilson is the brand. Torques is our game & VØST is the brand.

V for Visionary

Our simple vision is to create a Sport Culture of health & happiness through an active lifestyle of playing Torques and being a part of the Torques Tribe. Our grand vision is that Torques is a global sport & played in the Olympics.

Ø for Off-Court

Being contained to a court is boring. We like to be able to play outside of the box. Think different. BE different. We might be a little Off, but think we have a new spin on things. Play Torques, be for the Birds!

S for Shuttle

Our patented shuttle (the magic behind this new sport) resembles a birdie from badminton, but don't be fooled, it spins through the air much differently.

T for Technology

Technology plays an essential role with Torques. From the development of the Shuttle to the innovative option of scoring with the T2 Torques timer app. "It's Time 2 Score." Match Stats from the T2 will be uploaded to the Global Torques Website which will house records, standings and statistics such as Average Rally Time (ART).  

Racquet Torques is awesome, but don't just take our word for it!

Competitive FlyZone

The FlyZone is created by the use of the two pairs of 10 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 "HitZone"  

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. We will eventually upload your Match scores to the Global Torques site.

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.

Do the shuttles break?

  • Yes, the shuttles eventually break.
  • They are not indestructible quite yet. Maybe one day.
  • We only ADVISE to hit the nose of the shuttle when playing Torques.
  • Only serve underhand, dropping the nose of the shuttle on to the racket face.
  • Hitting the shuttle any other way than on the nose can damage or break the shuttle.
  • If you hit the wings of the shuttle, they may snap off. From our experience of playing if one wing snaps off, the shuttle still flies.

Is Torques hard to learn?

  • No, Torques is easy to learn. If you have played any other racquet sport before (tennis, pickle ball, racquetball, smash ball, badminton) than Torques will probably come easy to you.
  • We like to use the visualization of sliding the racquet head at a 90 degree angle along the top of a table. It is similar to a volley in tennis. Instructional videos are coming soon.

What is the Torques Timer App?

  • The T2 Timer app is an innovative new way to score based on the time of the rally with Seconds turning into points. A 10 Second Rally is worth 10 Points...It's time to Score!!
  • You can download it on the Iphone App store by searching Torques Timer
  • Match statistics will be uploaded to the Global Torques Website.
  • You will need a 3rd person to keep score for you when playing a match.

Is Torques a good workout?

Torques is a GREAT workout! If your looking to get into shape & have fun, this is the sport for you. You can play on grass which is easier on your body (knee's, etc.) than playing on a hard court. 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.

Will Torques be a professional sport?

Absolutely. One day Torques will be a professional global sport played in the Olympics as a beach sport. GTO stands for Global Torques Organization and the GTO Website will house your game stats from your T2 Matches. This will help pave the way for skilled players to emerge for particiption in prize money Tournaments. 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 player at a time is our motto.
