Udaipur’s Vikramaditya Chaufla and Prashant Sen at Racketlon Thailand Open Challenger


Udaipur’s Vikramaditya Chaufla and Prashant Sen made the country proud by winning the bronze medal in men’s elite doubles at the Racketlon Thailand Open Challenger held from 4thto 6th January 2019. Mr. Chaufla and Mr. Sen competed against players from Europe and Asia in the tournament. Racketlon is an intense combination sport that tests the players in four disciplines – badminton, tennis, squash and table tennis.

In his debut Racketlon appearance, Mr. Chaufla also squared off in the singles against Danish player Jesper Hougaard who is ranked 14th in the world. Mr. Chaufla defeated Mr. Hougaard in badminton and gave a grueling competition in squash but eventually ceded victory after a close contest.

 

Mr. Chaufla has previously represented the country in the World University Championship of Badminton in Seoul and in a highly anticipated appearance; he is scheduled to compete in the World Championship of Racketlon at Germany in November. He is also set to open his own Badminton academy in Udaipur and bring his international expertise in the sport to train the city’s youth.
