WELCOME TO OUR PARTNERSHIP

There has never been a combination like us.

On July 1, 2021, the International Racquetball Federation [IRF], in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA, One Hamsa, in Tel Aviv, Israel, and the Sport:Next – the Metaverse Sports Association [MSA], near San Francisco, California, USA, made history.

They signed the first ever Memorandum of Understanding [MOU] between an IOC-Recognised international sports federation, a developer of virtual reality games, and the world’s only Metaverse Sports Association.

The IRF officially endorsed One Hamsa’s VR game, Racket: Nx… the first time this has happened. And the three agreed to “develop… Racket: Nx as a potential full Olympic Virtual Sport and an eventual candidate for the Olympic Games.”

Ours was the first such agreement with a fully immersive virtual reality game, on platforms like the Oculus Quest 2 and the Pico Neo 3, whose price point, size, and portability enable full general adoption.

This is the beginning of a new era in the world of virtual reality, and in the world of sport: the era of Real Virtual Sport.

The Best Virtual Racket Sport in the World

In order to be an official, international federation sanctioned sport, a VR game must be clearly derived from its parent sport[s], sufficiently like those sports that it can be used as a training aid, and precise enough to clearly separate players of different skill and effort, even at the highest levels of competition. Speaking of players, robust multi-player is a must. And it would help if such a game were already widely popular and well-accepted and reviewed.
Finally, it wouldn’t hurt if it were well and truly gender-neutral.
Racket:Next checks all the boxes.

Racket:Next is clearly derived from and reflects the essence of racquet sport, across the full range, from racquetball to tennis to badminton and squash.

Many VR games are fun. Very few are precise enough to qualify as an official sport, precise enough to separate the finest differences in player skill. Racket:Next is that precise. Watch this two-minute display of insane skill to understand.
