The 2019 HEAD UK-Racketball Series kicks off this Saturday with a sellout at the East of England Racketball Open.
England No.4 Billy Jones is seeded one in the A Grade. Jones is looking to start 2019 in the same fashion as he finished 2018 with a tournament win. The A Grade at Broxbourne is looking anything but straight forward however with three other players inside the top 10 taking part. Craig Chapel, Elliot Selby and Joseph Blackmur will all be looking to scupper Jone’s plans.
The Over 50’s is once again the largest draw of the day with 20 players taking part. With 6 straight wins needed to come home with the Over 50’s crown the day is set to be a test of endurance as much as skill.
A player to watch out for on the day is local favourite and National Doubles runner-up Amber Marshall as she attempts to go for three events, the women’s, A Grade and doubles. It will be Racketball all day for Marshall but maybe on home turf she can take home a title and hopefully survive the day!
