I remember learning years ago that there weren't any rules against carrying multiple racquets simultaneously during play, does anyone know whether this is still the case until current rules? At the time, I remember thinking that it would be much too cumbersome to wield dual racquets, as one might get in the way of another when attempting to execute strokes. However, today I saw someone (an adult) playing with a kid while using a child-size racquet. This gave me an idea: what if you carried a short racquet in your non-dominant hand for shots to the body? This reminds me of dual sword techniques where the swordsman carries one long sword and one short sword or dagger. Is this possible? I'm thinking about the possibilities for deception as well as the increased quickness of the small racquet.
