RACKETBALL (or SQUASH 57) is on the increase and popular at Falmouth, Truro and Penzance.

If you want to get involved contact one of these clubs – under the CLUBS TAB.

Falmouth in particular has a thriving racketball scene thanks to the enthusiasm and charm of their coach, Shuv Garland…..

The Cornwall 2014 Racketball Team, in their first outing at this level, came away as unexpected winners of their group of the Inter County Racketball National Championship in Winchester last weekend. The team now proceed to the next stage of the competition in February against other group winners nationwide.

Team members Peter Madsen(Captain), Jamie Moxom, Chris Lawrance (all Truro Squash & Racketball Club), Rory Brickell and Jon Newton (both Falmouth Sports Club) showed outstanding resilience to pull out of the bag great results over two tough opponents in South Wales and Hampshire.

Racketball League (est 2012/13)  – we tried but it folded due to lack of sustained interest!

Racketball is on the increase! Can anyone match the enthusiasm of the Falmouth players?

    Hi Matt
    Just to say that Falmouth is very happy to have any racketball teams (4 or 5 players) for a friendly match at Falmouth or we could travel to any of the Clubs. I think Penzance could be up for a ‘challenge’, and Truro could see another friendly match sooner rather than later. Lets get talking! Shuv x

    Better late than never!!!

    The first ever County Racketball closed event took place on the 15th and 16th June and was a huge success.

    Many thanks to all the participants especially Ben Maundrel travelling down from Bristol and indeed giving some great performances.

    There was some superb shot play and feats of agility providing fantastic entertainment at all levels of ability.

    Although there were some close calls along the way the usual suspects were triumphant. Jamie Moxham taking the men’s title along with his County Closed Squash title although had a formidable opponent in the final being Rory Brickell.

    Siobhan Garland took the Women’s title from the up and coming squash enthusiast Katie Brickell who gave Siobhan a good run for her money considering having only played Racketball a few times. Well done Katie.

    Congratulations to the plate winner Dale Dimant and a big thank you to Falmouth Sports Club for hosting the event.
