UK Racketlon

Written by James Pope

UK Racketlon is delighted to confirm now the dates for our Festival of Racketlon!  This new feature for the 2019 UK Tour will combine the 2019 Staffordshire Open and the 2019 County Championships into a single weekend in Keele, the 22nd and 23rd June 2019.  Saturday 22nd June will feature the Staffordshire Open, now back for its fifth iteration the Staffs Open will once again form the third leg of the UK Racketlon Super Series.  Then, on Sunday 23rd June the UK Racketlon County Championships will return.  A brief hiatus last season due to unforeseen events, the County Championships is a fiercely competitive event that brings the Team Racketlon format to the UK Tour, a format many consider to be one of the best ways to play!

2017 County Champions: Middlesex (L-R): Calum Reid, Duncan Stahl (c), Louise Clarke, David Culshaw

We are hopeful that both events will attract players to spend the weekend in Keele, so we will be arranging a players meal on the Saturday evening with entertainment hosted by local Racketlon star, George Roberts.  Further details including entry information, accommodation options and the meal will appear in the coming months, the County Championships will be opening for entry at noon on the 1st March and information for current and potential captains will be released in mid-February.
