Xmas racketlon on December 29th 2013 1245pm - a Ranking category and the traditional fun category.
Former O45's World Champion Dave Lazarus will once again host a Xmas racketlon event. This year the event takes place on Sunday December 29th 2013. Also the training home of former Mens World Champion Calum Reid.
It starts at 1pm, costs £15 and is bring your own shuttles. Payment on the day. It is a very well organised event with plenty of sport and the sports not played necessarily in the traditional racketlon order.
Redbridge have been doing racketlon tournaments now for well over 6 years. 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 4 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 Duncan Stahl with Anthony Phillips as runner up and the year before by Keith Lesser beating Phil Todd. This year the tournament is being split in two. There will be 2 events - one for more serious racket sports players and one for fun. All entries are via Dave Lazarus and not via englishracketlon.org. 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 13 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.
