West of England Racketball Open - Leamington Tennis and Squash Club
The last time that the UK-Racketball Series ran an event in Leamington was before the club redevelopment in 2014. As you would expect in Racketball strong Warwickshire the event was a great success with club Head Coach Jason Pike being beaten in the A Grade final by Dan Soar. Many of the other winners back in 2014 are still regulars on the tour, Ryan Loska took the B Grade, James Powley the Over 40's and Natalie Lawrence the Women's.
The club development has transformed the squash section at the club. A new glass back court built alongside the first has opened up the viewing for the show courts and helped to give the club a fantastic tournament atmosphere.
With the event taking place two month after the Racketball/ Squash57 Nationals in nearby Birmingham expect a strong local Edgbaston as well as Warwickshire entry!
The club itself has an amazing history. Leamington Lawn Tennis Club is the oldest lawn tennis club in the world founded in 1872, three years before Wimbledon! Follow this link for a fascinating read - http://www.leamington-tennis-squash.co.uk/club-information/club-history/
Jason Pike the head coach has made a fantastic impact at the club with new junior sessions, club nights and even a PSA closed satellite event. Leamington’s Junior Squash is going from strength to strength and is now one of the strongest in the country with over 100 taking part every week.
This will be a great tournament so don’t miss out!
