Summer racketball league

We are looking for new players to join Dean’s racketball team that play in the friendly summer league against various clubs in and around Edinburgh.

The league runs between April and August with matches roughly every fortnight! Racketball is very similar to squash and just as fun! No experience is necessary and all abilities catered for! We also have spare rackets you can use.

More details!

Many thanks for those who took part this 2014 DEAN RACKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIP. With expand of 4 months most of us have play more games than last year!! total of 79 to 47 points. With this seem we are improving our games as well for Team Matches too. I will try to have next year start in April to August for 5 month, this help us play earlier to prepare Team Matches etc.

R. Anderson 23 points
D. Mill 6 points
R. Todd 6 points
C. Hopkins 6 points
M, Clarkson 10 points
P. Jones 1 points
S. Aiken 1 points

As you can see Ross + David got 23 points!! So this will be rematch to see who the winner.


First of all, I or we all should raise our hat to Ross for making big effort to play all his games, when he only home for weekend, and doing a good job with Commonwealth Games in mid-week for over a year ( may finish end of this month, so courts will be busy after that!! ). we both lost a game, we both a Champion!! So who the first player to win Dean CHAMPION twice!?

We were neck to neck on first game then I shoot off to win 15-9, same again on 2nd game a close call, then again I won 15-12 (I think), but 3rd game I play better with 3 cracker lucky shot game and Ross moan!!, but he always called me ‘Lucky’ in most games anyway!! or was he a bit tried with all the travels!! it was 14-4, then what I thought not nice but it a stoke, as he didn’t move out of way!! but he heard the ball burst!! it true!! I asked Ross are you sure to play on as seem a long shot for him!!?? I bring a new ball with 2 dot showing!! with warm up, then seem he like this ball better and picking up load of point( or was the ball so dark black he hitting it well!! ) then he hit the tin!! 15-8. Hooray the winner is David Thompson!

Thanks Ross, also again others as well. not sure we carry on with this using Ladder, or we again switch to work on our Squash Training/games with rest of other Squash players for teams etc!!

Yours in sports
