The grass is always greener on the other side

For once that is completely true and nothing negative. The fastest sold out tournament in racketlon history (in just under 3 hours) featured the green tennis surface. Held at the exclusive Roehampton Club in the south of London, it was a spectacular event. With 28 tennis courts, a full golf course, several croquet fields, old ladies sipping tea it fulfilled every cliché of the English upper class.

Rumour has it that the Wimbledon qualification rounds were moved to another location just to ensure the best possible court quality for this racketlon challenger tournament. Most exciting from an international point of view was the racketlon debut of Alison Water, current squash world ranking no. 11, making the finals in the women’s A tournament.

Most successful Swiss player with three medals in the elite categories was Benjamin Gränicher, now officially fully recovered from injury. Jan Wyler won his first international medal in Men C doubles. Up and coming Leonard Ladner finished third on the Men’s C podium. Best lunch goes to Oliver Bühler and Christian Schäfer. Best tennis advice came from Beat Ladner.

As the racketlon players behaved better than the Wimbledon qualifiers, there is a good chance that the tour will return to the same location. It is highly recommended by the writer to join next year for one of the best events on tour.
