India’s Racketlon team defeated Great Britain 137-101 to win their first Nations Cup title in Graz, Austria.


Racketlon is a combined sport in which competitors must play four racket sports: table tennis, badminton, tennis, and squash.

Captain Ashutosh Pednekar of the Indian Navy contributed to the team’s victory over the weekend.

The other members of the winning team were Vikramaditya Chaufla, Adarsh Vikram, Sidharth Nandal, Varinder Singh and Karan Taneja.

Chaufla, who also represented India at the World University Badminton Championships in 2012, won a silver in the C singles category. She later teamed with Karan Taneja to also secure a silver in the men’s doubles.
