The T&RA and the Queen's Club were proud to host the Inaugural Rackets Mixed Open Doubles, which was a resounding success. The atmosphere in the gallery was truly amazing while Rackets was being played all day in the best spirit. The players were blessed with a significant number of spectators who were all impressed with the standard of play. Special mention to all the male players and in particular Ben Cawston (Assistant Professional at Tonbridge School) and Graeme Tyndall (Head Profesional at Haileybury School) who, as a result of their astute play, enabled the girls to play some of the best Rackets they have ever played. Many players and spectators were amazed by their spectacular improvement.

Congratulations to India Deakin & Felix Clarke (from Cheltenham College; both QC members) for becoming the first ever Rackets British Mixed Open Doubles Champions, defeating Ella Gaskell & Graeme Tyndall (from Haileybury College) in a very entertaining Final!
