UK Racketlon

**Technical issue resolved, Staffordshire Open entry is now live!**

 

It is with great pleasure that we can announce the launch date for two events in June, the Northumberland Open (Sunday 16th June) and the Staffordshire Open (Saturday 22nd June). The Staffordshire Open is part of our festival of Racketlon featuring the 2019 County Championships (more details on that event here). Both these events will open for entry on tournament software on Tuesday 16th April at 5 pm.


The Northumberland Open debuted on the UK Tour in 2018 and proved to be an instant hit at the Northumberland Club in Newcastle. A highly enjoyable mixture of a friendly venue with cracking facilities and tasty food left the 2018 entrants very happy and we fully expect 2019 to replicate this wonderful start. Entry opens at 5pm on Tuesday 16th April on Tournament Software here 


The Staffordshire Open, held at Keele University also forms leg 3 of the 2019 Super Series, and it is certainly going to prove to be a popular event once again. Hosted by the booming personality of George Roberts, even as a stand alone event it would be a big deal on the tour. But combined in a weekend with the County Championships means that in 2019 it is likely to be the biggest one ever, early entry will be really important to secure your space in the Staffordshire Open (County Championships entry is separate, please see here for information). Entry opens at 5pm on Tuesday 16th April on Tournament Software here. 


There are host of further events which will open in the weeks ahead, so keep an eye on the website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds to be aware of when these events in York (14th July), Manchester (28th July), and Canturbury (4th August) open for entries.
