Gameplay

Racket Club is a game that was built for VR first, so it’s not actually a sport, its kind of combination between Tennis, pickleball and squash. This means that the game takes full advantage of the VR technology and offers a realistic and intuitive gameplay that mimics the real-life physics and movements of racket sports.

You can play Racket Club in single-player or multiplayer mode, either in singles or doubles. In single-player mode, you can choose from a variety of AI bots with different skill levels, from easy to expert. You can also customize your avatar, your racket, and your outfit to suit your style and preferences.

In multiplayer mode, you can join or create a room and invite your friends or other players to join you. You can also chat with them using voice or text, and even spectate other matches from the sidelines. Racket Club is a very social game that lets you interact with other players in a friendly and respectful manner.

The game offers two main modes: Career Mode and Quick Play. In Career Mode, you can progress through different tournaments and challenges, earning trophies and rewards along the way. You can also unlock new courts, rackets, and outfits as you advance in your career. In Quick Play, you can jump into a match right away, either with an AI bot or another player.

The game supports both Oculus Quest and PC VR headsets, and has cross-play functionality.

Fitness Intensity

One of the best things about Racket Club is that it is not only fun, but will also get you sweating. Of course not as much as dedicated fitness games like Les Mills Bodycombat or Thrill of the fight, but it’s far better than sitting on the couch.

Racket Club is a game that requires real movement, not virtual locomotion. You have to swing your arms, move your feet, and bend your knees to hit the ball and move around the court. The game adapts to your play space, so you don’t need a lot of room to play. However, the more space you have, the more freedom you have to move.

Racket Club is a game that can make you sweat and burn calories while having fun. It is suitable for players of all fitness levels and ages, as long as they are comfortable with VR motion.

Audience Score

While still in its early days, Racket Club has received overwhelmingly positive reviews from players and critics alike. The game has a 4.6 out of 5 stars rating on the Oculus Store, based on over 300 reviews and 92% upvotes on Steam.

Immersion

Racket Club is a game that can make you feel like you are really playing tennis or racket sports in VR. The game has excellent graphics and sound effects that create a realistic and immersive atmosphere. You can see the details of the court, the ball, the racket, and your opponent. You can also hear the sound of the ball hitting the racket, the crowd cheering, or your opponent grunting.

The game also has realistic physics and interactions that make you feel like you are holding a real racket in your hands. You can swing your racket with different speeds, angles, and spins, and see how the ball reacts accordingly.

The game also has a very immersive social aspect that lets you communicate and interact with other players in VR. You can talk to them using voice or text, or watch other matches from the sidelines.

Racket Club is a game that can make you forget that you are wearing a VR headset and transport you to a virtual, well racket club.

Replayability

Another aspect of Racket Club that deserves praise is its replayability. Unlike some other sports games that can get boring or repetitive after a few matches, Racket Club offers a variety of modes, challenges, and customization options that keep the gameplay fresh and engaging. You can play solo or with friends, online or offline, in casual or competitive settings. You can also unlock new rackets, outfits, and accessories for your avatar, as well as new courts and environments to play in. Racket Club is a game that you can enjoy for hours on end, without losing interest or motivation.
