Just thought I would clear up the issue of National Rankings.

These are not done by UK-Racketball.

Although we work closely with ESR, they sanction our events, forward on emails and give us advice on how to structure events and we do the same for them.  We are not a part of ESR and the National Rankings and Junior Rankings are not a part of UK-Racketball.

The series rankings have been done by UK-Racketball, you can see exactly how many points that you get for where you finish and work out where you will go to before the rankings are even announced by the site.

Hope this helps but although we publish the results we donít write them.

The new dunlop rackets look fantastic itís obvious they have copied the squash colour schemes. Does anyone know if they play well, any advice on which one I should go for, I like light rackets but not to light.

National rankings...usual blah. you've got players on there that aren't even Racketball players. When are England squash and Racketball gonna learn that people like Racketball cus it isn't Squash! And players should not be in the top 30 rankings when they only enter Squash tournaments. Just 'having a go' at the nationals shouldn't warrant a top 30 ranking. Once again England squash capitalising on the success of racketball but still treating it as a second class sport, the unwanted younger brother.

Another question, how come my county team can not get a penny for Racketball and yet Squash get there overnight accommodation payed and probably expenses. Isn't it supposed to be equal status! I would be keen to here if there would be any mileage gained by complaining to ESR due to this discrimination?

I think the national ranking are a bit all over the place aren't they? For example, take player Andy Warmington. On the previous list he wasn't in the top 29, but in the new list he is number 18 and he hasn't played a single tournament since the old rankings?!
I assume these are the official rankings based on previous national champs but UK racketball's version is based on guessing the rankings!

the sport really needs a ball that it can be confident with and that everyone wants to use. don't know why they looked to build a ball for Daryl Selby and the top guys when they play a couple of times a year. the ball needs to be one that club players want to use everyday. am sure daryl will make the game look quality no matter what ball he uses! how many sports out there have different balls they use, tennis, golf, squash, cricket. i'm not sure anyone got any info, are there other sports that use different balls?

Perhaps Dunlop will bring a ball out that is somewhere between the Price Black and Price blue ball and make this the only sanctioned ball, then everybody 'should' be happy! It would still allow the skill element of the current black ball but also utilise the fitness element of the current blue ball.

Don't agree. I think black balls are great and it brings an extra skill element into the game instead of just being about fitness. People that like the blue ball are either in the older age groups or fitter guys in the open and over 35 agre groups. The skillful players prefer black

Not heard about this but it wouldn't surprise me at all. If Dunlop think that racketball is getting more and more popular, they are bound to throw some money at it to get the official ball. They sponsored the national racketball champs and had their rackets on show etc so i suppose the next thing will be to relaunch the balls? The old blue ones were very bouncy so let's hope they bring some decent new ones out if they do become the official ball.
