Guy Pearson notched up a notable double in the Warwickshire Racketball Championships at the weekend (2-4TH Oct) at Edgbaston Priory when he won both the Men’s Open and the Junior titles.

In the Men’s final, sponsored by PROACT, the Kenilworth youngster beat Stuart Lynch, while in the WORXINFO junior event, he eased past Jonathon Pitts of Studley by the same margin. Top seed Nick Hynes was forced to withdraw during his semi final against Tom Robinson (Kenilworth). In the other semi final, Pearson beat Anil Ram Priory), who upset third seed Simon Fokes (West Warks) 3-2.

Vicky Hynes of Edgbaston Priory retained her Women’s Open title, remarkably only two months after giving birth to her second child, beating Grace Talbot of Kenilworth 3-0. Talbot won the Junior Girls’ title, beating Libby Corke (Priory) 3-0 in the final.

This was the first time a Junior County Racketball Championships has been held in the UK, and sponsor Graham Greensall of Worxinfo is keen that it should become a regular feature of the tournament calendar, and that other counties should follow Warwickshire’s lead.

Proact, meanwhile, are happy to be sponsoring the main events for a second year, under CEO Andy Smith, who also captains Priory’s first team in the Warwickshire league.

Tournament Director Rob Shay was delighted with the way the event ran, and added that he would like to see more participants next year in the Junior and Women’s events.
