Racketlon World Tour Wins for Will

Northern junior Will Gregson won gold and silver at the Racketlon London Open, held at the Roehampton Club on 17-18 August.

The fast-growing sport of Racketlon pits opponents against each other at table tennis, badminton, squash and tennis – the London Open is the only World Tour event to include grass court tennis.

Will (left in our picture), who plays for the Northern’s senior and junior squash teams, won Gold in the U21 Doubles with his partner Will Taylor and followed that up with a Silver in the U16 Singles, just losing out to Cumbria’s Matt Davidson.

Meanwhile Will’s father Lee, who also plays for the Northern squash teams, came 4th in the Men’s C Event.

Will has now been selected to represent GB in the U16s at the World Championships in Leipzig at the end of November. It will be his third year running in the Racketlon GB kit.

“Table tennis is my strongest sport,” says Will. “But I’m catching up in squash. And Dad says I need to work harder on my tennis!”
