A new Racketball event, the K2 Racketball Super 16's, has been announced by England Squash, in association with PeterNicolSquash.com, writes Justyn Price.  This exciting new event is being organised by England Squash Area Manager Justyn Price, as part of a programme to showcase K2 as a potential Olympic Training Venue for Nations from around the world in preparation for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

In addition to the Men's and Women's Open, there will be a mixed doubles competition and an Under 13 Racketball competition. It is hoped that the open events will command strong draws, exciting and enthusing the spectators from the local community about Racketball by incorporating a number of players who have recently taken part in the National Racketball Championships.
Entry for the event is £10 per player, per event, and as the name suggests, each competition will have a draw of 16, with a plate event, ensuring all players have at least two matches.
This event is part of a much bigger programme of Squash and Racketball Development at this fantastic venue, with 5 glass backed courts, all with excellent spectator viewing. In association with the local authority a Squash and Racketball development programme is being set up, with the focus on developing a vibrant junior section through links with the local School Sport Partnership, and a thriving social and competitive adult section for both Squash and Racketball.
There will also be a Racketball Fun day and Coaching Clinics running on Friday 29 August for local residents to come and try Racketball for themselves under the guidance of England Squash Licensed Coaches.
