KENT RACKETBALL LEAGUE

The 2016 season of the Kent Racketball League will begin in January and I invite your club to enter a team or teams.

The league plays on alternate Wednesdays over much of the year, with a summer break. The format is 4 singles matches and 2 doubles matches; each match is played to three games. The players are ranked in order of quality and play the singles in order but the doubles can be played by any pairings.

Presently many of the playing teams are located in West Kent but I am willing to run a separate East Kent league if there is enough interest.

The cost of entry is £60 per team.

Please reply by:

Thank you.

After a disappointing 1st round where we lost all of our matches 2-1 we took the long journey to Liverpool to play Warwickshire, Lancashire and Merseyside in a relegation battle.

The 1st match v Merseyside was a one sided affair with Mark Steeden and Rob Lewis winning with ease and Mark Banfield having 3 tight games but final result was a 3-0 victory for Kent.

The 2nd match v Lancashire was again a one sided affair with Mark Steeden dropping his 1st game of the whole competition but eventually winning his tie 3-1, the other 2 rubbers were both won 3-0, so the final result was another 3-0 result for Kent.

The 3rd match v Warwickshire was on paper going to be a much tougher match with Warwickshire having beaten us in January , Mark Steeden was back to his dominating ways and winning in comfort, 3-0, Rob on the other hand was having a bit of a battle eventually winning 3-1 but going through 2 markers and a vast array of vocabulary . Mark B had his toughest match of the weekend winning a tough match 3-2.

With Kent winning all 3 matches we are now back in the Premier Division next season.
