What it means to become a Racket Master

 

The Surrey Sports is a great venue, a large arena for table tennis and badminton, England Squash certified glass back squash courts and a great range of outdoor tennis courts makes the SSP a fantastic venue, and one we have always enjoyed returning to.  Fantastic spectator viewing with stadium seating, the return of the Elite category walk on videos, ensures that the Racket Masters is a unique event on the World Tour.  The venue comes with a great onsite bar and coffee shop, able to cater for all player needs.
