Harrogate Racketball Tournament Introduction


Harrogate has been a leading squash club in the North of England for decades. Home to one of the worlds best coaches David Pearson top England squash players often make the journey to Harrogate to train. Players who regularly compete at Harrogate include Nick Matthew, Laura Massaro and recent Commonwealth  Gold Medalist James Willstrop.

Harrogate shares a trend with many of the Yorkshire Clubs by now having a devoted Racketball membership that has grown to rival the squash membership in terms of size and court usage. This is an event where Series players should expect some tough challenges from club members and competitors from surrounding clubs. This is the first time that the Series has travelled this far north and the club members are said to be relishing the opportunity to try their hand against the countries best!

The club facilities are great with 4 glass back courts. A newly refurbished bar that looks out onto the courts and a gym where players can warm up and cool down. With only 4 courts at Harrogate this event is limited to 50 entrants so enter early to avoid disappointment.

Grades

 

It is important to remember that UK-Racketball Series events are designed to be inclusive. Although the A grade does attract the best racketball players in the country the events really are for players of all ages and abilities. We have never had a competitor who felt they were not good enough for an event when they took part.

A Grade – County, national or good club player 
B Grade – Regular club player 
Women’s – All ages and abilities, these events have a great range of players which makes for a fun
and competitive day.
Over 40’s – For players over the age of 40
Over 50’s - For players over the age of 50 
Over 60’s – For players over the age of 60
Beginner – This is for players who have recently started racketball. Players who have previously
played squash to a high level and have now started playing racketball may be better off in the A or B grade.

If you are unsure which category to enter please feel free to contact Mark Fuller directly on 07846067505 or email us at info@uk-racketball.com and we will be happy to advise you. 

If entries to a category are not sufficient grades may be merged, however all participants will always be informed in advance and they will have a choice if they would still like to play, this has never happened in the last four years.
