The EAST OF ENGLAND RACKETBALL OPEN took place on Saturday 11th February at Broxbourne Sports Club with all courts showcasing the very best of racketball to the watching crowds.
Local legend Danny Weights proved to be the man in form as he not only scooped up the Over 40’s singles title after a tough 3/1 battle with Alexis Smith in the final, but he also managed to claim a quality 2/1 Open Doubles win with playing partner Adam Grilli, over pre-event favourites Luke Bishop and Amber Marshall.
A brilliant effort by Dan and all our players that took part.
One final big upset was that of the Open Final where Broxbourne Head Coach Nick Mulvey managed to avenge last year’s final loss and take down Luke Bishop 2/0 in a high quality match with both players utilising all their ball skill and retrieving abilities to the maximum.
Special mention must go to Amber Marshall who has now had the Broxbourne Show Court named after her in recognition of her Squash and Racketball achievements to date!
Congratulations Amber and a lovely gesture from the club too.
