Qianball is a racket sport similar to tennis or squash. The game can be described as a mix between tennis and squash or as squash without walls. The game can be played by two or four players, or used as practice by a single person. Qianball can be played on any flat hard surface, indoors or outdoors no matter the weather. The game is played on a court a little smaller than a tennis court with both players placed on the same side of the net. The player side of the net measures 7.6 * 7.8 m, and the other side of the net should be app. 10 * 12 m, but there are no exact rules for this. The name is derived from the Chinese Qianlongball, from where the game originates.
The equipment required to play the sport are, a weighted ballbag or a floor embedded hook, quinball racquets, and a quinball with rubber band.
The game is played by placing the ball bag 2.1 m from the net in the so-called Qianball point. the end of the rubber band is attached to the turning rings or the floor embedded hook. The players are positioned on the same side of the net as in squash and takes turns to serve 2 consecutive serves before changing sides. The game is decided in three sets to 15 playing with a running score.
Denmark was the first country in Europe where Qianball came to from China. In Denmark the game is organised under KFUM (Danish branch of YMCA sport).
