English Open 2017

2 Swiss players – 2 Swiss titles – this is called efficiency! :-)

According to the organisers the tournament should have been one of the 3 biggest tournaments of the year. Unfortunately, not only many of the Swiss players missed it, but also hardly any players from other countries were there either. Nevertheless, 99 racket fanatics were fighting for different titles and that does not mean that there were just boring matches.

One of these fanatics was Nicolas Lenggenhager. He would had loved to compete in the elite category but he did not get one of the wildcards, which went to France and England instead. In the B draw he impressively proved himself to be the right candidate for a wildcard next time: He reached the finals without even having touched his tennis racket in the first two rounds. In the semi-final and the final it was a bit more interesting, but no-one was able to stop him from winning his title.

In Men’s A double, he paired up with the French Sylvain Ternon – another strong badminton player. Even though they only won their last match, they never really had opponents who were able to challenge them in badminton.

Esther Dübendorfer once again played with her partner from England, Jordan Dainty, in the Mixed doubles. Although they had to go through difficult phases in the finals, the pair successfully secured their 2nd title together after having won the Malta Open in autumn last year.

Dübendorfer also fought for gold in the +45 category. She had to be happy with silver in the end though, as Jo Shelley, with the home ground advantage, was just better on that day.

Apart from the two titles, the players’ party in the Bounce PingPong was another highlight of the weekend. The perfect combination of a restaurant, a bar and table tennis tables all at the same place – a dream of every Racketlon player.
