UK Racketlon

Written by James Pope

Redbridge Racketlon on May 7th - A Ranking category and the traditional fun category.

Newly crowned O45's World Champion Dave Lazarus will once again host a racketlon event. This year the event takes place on Monday 7th May 2012. Also the training home of Mens World Champion Calum Reid.

Redbridge have been doing racketlon tournaments now for 5 years and it seems longer, Redbridge being a great venue for the sport and feels like the natural racketlon home now in the UK for many people. A real community spirit has developed which really shows what sport is all about. David is a very experienced organiser in a range of sports and has organised racketlon events for over 2 years. His introductions to the tournaments are legendary....

The last tournament was won by Keith Lesser, beating Phil Todd in the final. This  tournament is being split in two. Ranking points will be available at the lowest ranking factor for the A event and the B event will be a fun event. All entries are via Dave Lazarus and not via See contact details below.

Lazarus attracts the good, the improving, the young and the spirited and his tournaments are a really great mix of talent, grit, determination and most importantly fun. Recently turned 11 years old, Elise Lazarus is a regular and it's amazing to see how much Elise has improved at the other sports (being already an expert squash player!).

Redbridge life member Stephen Lesser also regularly competes. The local accountant (Lesser & Co) really enjoy's Dave's events.
