Racketlon Welsh Open Success

This weekend James was in Cardiff for his first Racketlon tournament of 2015, the Welsh Open. Taking place at the David Lloyd club, the tournament is well known on the tour for its excellent facilities and support from local racket sports players! 

James had a busy weekend and was playing in the Men’s Singles, Men’s Doubles and Mixed Doubles events – with his greatest success coming in the latter. Partnering fellow Cambridgeshire county badminton player, Dianne Baker they managed to end the day victorious, overcoming a strong fellow England pair in the final. James also finished third in the men’s doubles, securing a close 74-71 victory in the 3rd/4th place playoff.

It was the first victory for James in an international event after finishing runner up on five previous occasions. James is now looking forward to his next tournament, the Czech Open which takes place in Prague at the end of April!
