UK Racketlon

Written by James Pope

The 2017 European Team Championships were filled with pulsating, high quality Racketlon and once again the British teams were in the mix across the divisions.  From dominance in the U16s, U21s and O55s who all brought home Gold (with U16 Silver), through to the first GB Elite medal in 13 years and the confirmation that GB2 are the best of the Amateur teams, the union flag was proudly worn on every players shoulder.  


In 2018, it is the World Championships which will be hosted in Zurich.  The World Team Championships will take place on the 23rd and 24th August, within the World Singles Championships (22nd to 26th August).  GB will once again be sending a group of teams to the event, please note, selected players are required to fund their own travel, accommodation, entry fee and kit.  


If a player wishes to be considered for selection they must enter the British Championships (7th & 8th April at the Parklangley Club – Enter Here) in the category they wish to be considered for.  For example, if a player wishes to be considered for the O45s Team, the MUST play in the O45s event at the British Championships.  If you are unable to play in the British Championships or have any queries about selection in general, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
