UK Racketlon

Written by James Pope

The 2nd Sussex Open is officially launched and open for entries. 

A one day event on sunday 8th August based at the Holbrook club in Horsham (nr Gatwick).  It is the 9th event of the year in the domestic tour and is ideal preparation for the English Open which is held 2 weeks later. ..

Current plan is to run Mens A,B and C along with one/two ladies events.  This will be reviewed as entries come in.  Last year we had 25 men and 8 women and ran 5 categories (3 men/2 women).  As always we look to guarantee a minimum of 3 matches for each entrant and time permitting there may be potential for a 4th. 

All 4 sports are in very close proximity at the club with the table tennis and squash in the same building.  The badminton and tennis are next to each other and all sports are less than a 30 second walk. 

The tennis courts have been fully resurfaced this year, so along with probably the only table tennis dedicated room in English racketlon, all 4 sports are excellently catered for (2 squash courts and 4 badminton courts). 

The plan is to start at midday and to all be finished by 6pm at the latest (planning for 6pm but contingency on squash and tennis courts until 7pm). 

There is a main bar area for socialising during the event.  Food and drink are available on site along with free parking is available.
