    Actually I hard of somoene playing with two rackets before in a high school match. The person did quite ok with dual rackets.

    My only question is (as a joke), how do you defend if the bird goes straight for you in the middle? Dual racket block? lol!

    It is of course up to how the rules should be interpreted, but there is max-stringbed area defined if i remember correctly, and if the rules are interpreted so that the area gets ADDED for the second racket, this rule can be used by an umpire to prohibit use of two rackets (if not both half sized)

    twobeer, i just checekd through the laws and there is no maximum area defined, only:

    4.2.2 shall not exceed 280 mm in overall length and 220 mm in overall width. However, the strings may extend into an area which otherwise would be the throat, provided that:
     
    4.2.2.1 the width of the extended stringed area does not exceed 35 mm; and
     
    4.2.2.2 the overall length of the stringed area does not then exceed 330 mm.
    this presumely refers to one racquet only, but then again the laws are open to interpretation

    that was the rule I was refering to. The limt of "overall width" and "length" applies to "The stringed area:", so if two rackets are used if I remeber correctly the reasoning was that "the 'overall' stringed area" would cover both rackets and thus make two full-size rackets illegal.. But I do not remember 100%, I think it was an umpire that told me that was how he would interpret the rules if someone showed up with two sticks on court..

    cheers,
