London Racketball Open Introduction
The Kent and North London area is a growing hotspot for Racketball with many players supporting events all round the UK. The London Racketball Open gives these players a chance to fight it out for titles on home soil. Expect a big entry for this one both locally and from the rest of the UK with Bexley having a strong local Racketball following.
In 2018 Bexley was the first Series event to incorporate doubles. It was such a success that we have rolled the idea out to all of our venues for 2019. The first ever doubles final on the UK-Racketball Series was an all Bexley affair with both of the finalist pairs Ted Jeal/Billy Jones and Keith Mabey/Rob Lewis from the club. In the end the combination of Jeal and Jones won through victorious. In the final event of the 2018 season Jeal/Jones went on to claim the National Racketball Doubles crown and they are still unbeaten as a pairing in competitive competition.
Bexley Lawn Tennis Club has a spacious and welcoming bar area. Very well maintained facilities with two glass back show courts that are great for spectating. Racketball at Bexley has an amazing history and without it the game might not exist at all.
