Leicestershire County Closed Racketball Championship 2023 Report

On Saturday 11th March, our club played host to the inaugural Leicestershire County Closed Racketball Championship!

With a good number of entries coming in from players across the county, competition was fierce across several graded tournaments that took place across the day and helped to showcase the increasingly-popular game of racketball to a wider audience.

In the main event, Ali Mutch proved too hot to handle for Andy Beel in the Grade A final. Through the other grades…

  • Paul O’Hara beat Steve Durrant in the Grade B final.
  • Adam Bagley beat Steve Smith in the Over 40s.
  • Nick Marshall beat Richard Jackson in the Over 50s.
  • Dave Wood beat Faz Dean in the Over 60s.

A big “thank you” to everyone who attended to play and support the event, in particular Andy Beel and Tim Parratt for the organisation, Matt Hardman for the t-shirt and poster designs, Ali Nicholas and Terrie Godden for the catering and bar organisation, and all of the club volunteers who helped run the day.

Same again next year!
