31st of May at the Devon and Exeter Squash Club in aid of Robbie’s Rally.
Joe and Andy will both be rotating on court and playing members of the University of Exeter Squash & Racketball Club and the local Devon and Exeter club over the 24-hour period.
Robbie’s Rally seeks to remember Robbie Keville, who was taken by a malignant brain tumour aged just 8. The charity has run a series of events, with all funds donations raised used to fund staff at Southampton Hospital Charity who specialise in rehabilitating children with brain tumours. I have attached a link (http://robbiesrally.com/) to the Robbie’s Rally website, which provides further details of the charity’s history, its aims and past events.
If you are able to share the event with anyone you think may have an interest, we also have a justgiving page with more details of the event: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Andy-Preston7?utm_id=55
Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org
over any questions you may have. Alternatively, I can be reached on 07941868271.
This will be the seventh year in a row that the Series has come to Limpsfield and it will be the first HEAD UK-Racketball event of the year in the South of the country. Limpsfield is a great club and is one of the main reasons we come back year after year.
Four players in the England Top 10 played at last year’s event. One of the biggest draws of the day was the Over 50s Final. After the finalists battled through at least three games in the group stages, it came down to a gritty final between Patrick Osborn and Michael Wardle that saw Patrick Osborn go on to take his 10th title and his third in a row at Limpsfield!

Entry List So Far...
Racketball is played with a slightly larger racket and a bigger, bouncier ball, making it easier for two players to start a rally - but it still shares rules with squash.
The rules for both sports are almost identical.
They both provide an intense workout - the court is only small, but the constant changing of direction and long rallies (if you're good enough!) mean you'll certainly feel the effects.

With the Racketball National Championships only being announced a couple of days ago there have already been a lot of entries and some big names. Old rivalries are set to resume with entries from both Tim Vail and Ted Jeal, follow this link to youtube to see last year's final. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0YlPy-r23Jo
I will publish a full entry list soon including all age group categories.
The British National Racketball Championships will take place at Nottingham Squash Rackets Club and the date is fast approaching. The last time UK-Racketball ran the National Championships was back in 2012 where we had a massive 260 entries, the biggest Nationals ever! The 2017 event promises to build on the success of previous years.
With 10 excellent 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 Racketball tournament. For more information click here...

Article from https://inews.co.uk/
At the weekend, I received a shock. For years now, I’ve played a game called racketball. It’s a gentler version of squash, using a bigger, bouncier ball that means the players don’t spend their time bending down and wrecking their knees. Ideal for people of a certain age, and in my case, I admit, circumference, racketball entails use of similar skills and tactics to squash and affords a good workout. Except, it’s not squash. Not only does it involve a larger ball, but the rackets are shorter, and their heads bigger. The rules are different: the server must bounce the ball before serving. The stroke is different, and because the ball is bouncier, there’s less emphasis on drop shots.
