Physiological [total physical activity (TPA), mean (MHR) and maximum heart rate (MXHR), activity energy expenditure (AEE)] and psychological [rate of perceive exertion (RPE), affect, Results showed that the new racket sport is indicated for overweight children because its physiological and psychological effects are similar to other traditional team sports.
