Well you may have read about the Finnish World Champion entering, Peter Nicol playing an exhibition and top quality referees from the ETTA and England Squash, what else is going on?

ENGLISH OPEN HIT BY CREDIT CRUNCH!

The costs of this year's event have gone up considerably. If it hadn't been for Carlton & Dunlop and also Planancy Project Management Services support the tournament would have certainly struggled financially so lets make sure we give these organisations our full support!

PRE-ORDER ENGLISHRACKETLON.ORG T-SHIRTS NOW!

For the first time we will be making available for purchase generic racketlon shirts with the website URL displayed on the shirt. Whilst these are not specifically tournament shirts they are very nice shirts (good quality) and will be available to buy at £12. These shirts in the shops are retailed at £15 and that is obviously without any of the racketlon printing so quite a good discount. Pls try and buy one of these shirts to support the newly formed English Racketlon Association and spread the word of the sport. Pls be advised there will be a free t-shirt specifically with the English Open 2008 text on and this is included in the entry fee and entry process.

If you haven't already you may want to include your English Open entry fee. Generically £33 for most singles categories and £25 per doubles pair.
