POLL: which one is right
"Racket" is like in "You are making a lot of racket (noise)."
Both are right.
^ yup. for me, it's whatever i feel like typing at the time.
I thinbk only racquet is correct to describe a tennis frame.
A racket is either a noiszy situation, or a criminal enterprise.
So you could say tennis warehouse is in the tennis racquet racket, and the two versions of the word mean different things.
Racquet is clearly the british english spelling, just as they will say colour instead of color, centre instead of center, etc.
The main difference seems to be that Racket is less used and can also mean noise. Whereas Racquet can mean only one thing.
i think the british uses racket more frequently
Separate names with a comma.
