Here is a another great promo video, this time for the inaugural Italian Racketlon Open from the 23rd to the 25th April 2010 in Basiglio, Milan. This event is a World Tour Challenger event, but promises to be run as if it were a full world tour event, or even a super world tour event, so lots of ambition from the tournament organisers.
