English Racketlon Open 2008


 

A great event coming up with categories do suit all standards of sportsmen is The English Racketlon Open 2008 (also incorporating the doubles World Championships). Racketlon is the sport which includes one set of table tennis, badminton, squash and tennis, played one after the other up to 21 points with two serves each. The host of this fantastic event is Redbridge Sports Centre in Essex, which boasts great capacity for racketlon and up to 5 matches will run parallel during the event which runs between Friday 15th August to Sunday 17th August. The Friday will exclusively be doubles events, with singles running on Saturday & Sunday with competitors getting up to 5 matches (lasting approximately one hour each) over the two days. Quite a feast of sport. Entries are expected from all around the world.

 

An exhibition is planned on the Saturday of the event. We won't give away any specifics yet but the idea is that we adopt a "battle of the pro's" taking at least 2 experts and pitting them against each other. It is rumoured that a very high profile name in the world of squash has accepted the invitation and the Organising team are in the process of sorting out the details.

 

 

Carlton & Dunlop are again providing an excellent sponsorship deal and should help provide a professional feel to the event. The 2007 English Open was known not only for the superb facilities and excellent t-shirts, but also for that dramatic one point victory in the Mens Final. Rickard Persson from Sweden in the end victorious. Will Rickard be back to defend his crown and can anyone stop him?
