Actually, the second spelling is 'racquet.'  I personally prefer racket, but both spellings are acceptable.

I was supposed to only do the top two of racquet and racket but I think I added raquet. That was the mistake. :)~

Ah ha!  I fixed it for you.  You can edit your posts here after they have been made.  But for some reason you cannot eidt polls.  I can edit anything since I am the official Admin, so if you ever need anything like that edited, just let me know.  :)

If you edit something before someone replies to your post then it just changes your post.  If you edit your post AFTER someone replies it edits your post and then at the bottom in small text it says when you edited your post so people can tell you edited it after they replied.  :)

Post on!
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Tennis is a French invention so racquet is the supposed "correct" spelling (french: raquette), but racket is used so frequently these days anyway.

True to a certain degree, but "racquet" is technically correct. A "racket" is a loud noise or, like, a criminal group. I don't like being pedantic (ok actually I do, bad grammar/spelling is one of my biggest pet peeves) but just because a lot of people spell it a different way doesn't mean it's right.

So you got quite annoyed when I spelled "everything" "evrything" right?

Not really. I assumed it was a typo.
