Introduction


Nottingham is the biggest squash venue in the country and the first venue to become a host for a UK-Racketball Event back in 2010. With 10 fantastic squash courts, including six glass backs and one of the best championship show courts in the country, the club is an ideal host for any top squash or racketball tournament.

In 2010 The Nottingham Racketball Open was the biggest entry in the Series with Dom Hamilton, Mike Phillips, Jonathan Underhill and Rob Watkins all taking titles and setting off our first UK-Racketball Series.

In 2011 Nottingham Squash Club became host to the first annual Fantasy Squash Festival, with the MB-Nottingham Racketball Open running on the same day as the MANTIS Fantasy Squash PSA Final. The Racketball Open attracted almost 100 entrants making it the biggest racketball event of 2011 outside the National Championships; many of the competitors stayed around to watch the PSA Final between Charles Sharpes and Anthony Graham, and the return of squash legend Peter Marshall to the club for an exhibition.

In 2013 was the biggest of the UK-Racketball Series events all year, with nearly 90 people taking part! The A grade final was an intense match between Craig Chappel and Ted Jeal as they both had a lot riding on the game. When it came down to it though, Ted’s determination to win was too great and it was he who emerged victorious, winning the event and the Series in one go.  

In 2014 we are hoping to build upon the success that this event has experienced over the last four seasons and create one of the biggest racketball events in the country. Despite attracting so many competitors the event still retains its inclusivity with players of all abilities and ages competing across the grades. However, if you want to play an event where the A grade is guaranteed to consist of the sport’s biggest names, the Nottingham Racketball Open is definitely it!

In 2017 the club hosted the National Racketball Championships where Tim Vail and Natialie Lawrence added titles to their growing collections. For results, reports and photos from the event visit this page on the UK-Racketball website http://www.uk-racketball.com/e1---national-racketball-championships.html

This is the flagship UK-Racketball Series event and bound to be another fantastic day’s racketball.

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. To maintain a fun atmosphere for this grade, only trophies will be awarded to the winners however there will also be a reduced entry fee of just £10.

 

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 three years.
 

 

Club Facilities

Nottingham Squash Rackets Club has plenty of onsite parking, a bar open all day serving hot and cold food, a gym to warm up in before your matches and a sauna and steam room to warm down and relax after playing.

 

Club Location

Along with the facilities and atmosphere the club location is another reason why events at Nottingham prove to be so popular. With the city being central to the UK and the club based only 15 minutes from the M1 Nottingham can be reached easily from all areas of the country.
