UK Racketlon

Written by James Pope

Xmas racketlon on December 30th 2012 1245pm - a Ranking category and the traditional fun category.

O45's World Champion Dave Lazarus will once again host a Xmas racketlon event. This year the event takes place on Sunday 30th December 2012. Also the training home of Mens World Champion Calum Reid.

Redbridge have been doing racketlon tournaments now for well over 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 (in particularly squash) and has organised racketlon events for over 3 years. His introductions to the tournaments are legendary....if you ever want to know what the gumi arm is.

Last year the tournament was won by Keith Lesser with Phil Todd as runner up and the year before by Robbie Wong. This year the tournament is being split in two. Ranking points will be available depending on the strength of entry 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 12 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!).

Even O60's player Stephen Lesser competed in last year's event. The local accountant (Lesser & Co) really enjoy's Dave's events and the Xmas event in particular proves popular.
