Scottish Open Racketball Championships 2012

Well it’s been all over the press (!) so you must have heard by now that the inaugural Scottish Open Racketetball Championships were held in Dumfries at the weekend (sponsored by Pathfinder Park Homes).

The tournament was a great successs with an ‘Open’ Championship as well as five different ‘Masters’ Tournamnets. The Tournament Director, Kieth Gristwood, organised the draws, the club, the catering, the sponsors, the players the markers, the trophies and even the night out on the Saturday (not to mention playing in the final; after a 5 set semi-final!). A great effort from all at Dumfries who helped him out.

And the Results? Well I thought I’d have a go as I’d no idea if I was any good or not and it turns out I’m OK, as I won the Open Tournament! Thankfully some of the “big guns” didn’t enter, but none the less I’m delighted and very proud to be the very first winner of the Scottish Championships.
