Devon and Exeter Racketball Introduction
The Devon and Exeter Squash and Racketball Club is a fantastic venue and a beacon for Racketball in the South West. The sport has a fantastic and passionate local
following, which helps to make this event extra special. This will be the 7th year that the Series has made a trip to Devon and Exeter. Last year saw the return of Matt Baker. Finalist in the A Grade in 2013 he overcame all challengers including Steve Selly in the final to take the Over 40's in 2017. As the Hall of Fame shows below the titles have been well spread but at Devon there is definitely more of a concentration of local winners than elsewhere in the UK.
The club itself is a fantastic local squash centre with a great atmosphere. Devon was one of the first centres in the UK to really champion Racketball and has shown just what the sport can do for the revival of a squash club. This is one of the only clubs that have converted a gym back into a squash court due to overwhelming demand.
In 2018 Devon and Exeter organised and ran a Title Unification bout between Squash 57 National Champion Mike Harris and Racketball National Champion Tim Vail. On the night it was 3-1 to Racketball Champion Tim Vail 3-1 in just over 90 minutes of brutal Racketball.
