Was Du über das Swiss Open 2022 wissen musst?

Neu brauchen in diesem Jahr alle Spielerinnen und Spieler, welche in der Schweiz wohnen, neben der FIR Lizenz eine Lizenz von der Swiss Racketlon Federation. Ist keine solche Lizenz vorhanden, kann für das Swiss Open eine Tageslizenz für Fr. 12.- gelöst werden. Ausgenommen von dieser Regelung sind die First Timer und die u11 und u13 Kategorien.

Auch dieses Jahr dürfen Kids gratis in den u11 und u13 Kategorien mitspielen. Die Spiele finden am Samstag 25. Juni 2022 statt. So können die Kleinsten ganz ungezwungen Racketlon-Luft schnuppern. Also nichts wie los, bringt Eure Kind und Kindeskinder mit (selbstverständlich fehlen auch die u16 und u21 Kategorien nicht).

Das First Timer Doppel hat sich bewährt und wir führen diese Kategorie weiter. Diese wird wie alle Doppel-Kategorien am Freitag 24. Juni 2022 gespielt.

Und zu guter Letzt - auch im 2022 gibt es als Trophäen wiederum die beliebten Schweizer Glocken.

 

Bis bald am Racketlon Swiss Open 2022!

Malta Open

What a weekend in Malta! Congratulations to all the medals won by Swiss players!

Friday:

Men's B Doubles
The men's B doubles was won by Patrick Bürgi and his English partner James Langworthy won. After the victory in the semifinals over Anna-Klara Ahlmer and Miryam Enmer, who played in the men's doubles due to a missing elite women's doubles category, was followed by a victory in the final against the Italian/Maltese victory over the Italian/Maltese doubles team of Scalvini/Spiteri. With the third place of Graham King and his partner Kim Ljunberg another podium place could be achieved for Switzerland.

Saturday:

Women’s B Singles – Gummiarm Triumph Helps Wavre to First Singles Title
Without a shadow of a doubt, the comeback result of the weekend goes to Gaëlle Wavre. The Swiss talent has won two Mixed Doubles titles with Nicolas Lenggenhager but never found silverware on the singles court before. That changed in Malta. Wavre opened with a relatively straightforward victory against Sabrina Carew. With Katrin Maldre forced to withdraw, Wavre and Carew were joined by Zuzana Vancuríková in a three-way battle for the title. That became a two-player battle when Vancuríková defeated Carew, leaving a decider between her and Wavre.

Men's A Singles

Another bronze medal was won by Nicolas Lenggenhager. Unfortunately, he missed the finals by only one single point against Kresten Hougaard. As Malte Thyregod was forced to withdraw from his bronze medal match, Nicolas Lenggenhager joining Leon Griffiths and Kresten Hougaard on the podium.

 

Men’s C Singles – Truc Holds Off Newcomers to Win in Malta
The Men’s C Singles was an intriguing category to preview. Four newcomers were drawn in with Switzerland’s Benoit Truc in an intriguing proposition. In the end, though, the experience proved to be the key factor as Truc stopped the newcomers, losing just one set in the process. A fantastic first career title for Truc.

Men's B Singles
In the men's B singles, Italian top-10 badminton player Scalvini took revenge on Bürgi in the first round and went on to win the tournament. For Bürgi the tournament ended satisfactorily after two wins on the the 5th place satisfactorily (best looser).

Men's Seniors +60
Last but not least the Swiss team could celebrate another bronze medal won by the King himself. Everyone is probably asking how many medals Graham already has won on the tour after all these years.

As always on Malta, the vacation feeling and the activities off the off the court. It was again a wonderful experience and can only be recommended for the next years.

Racketlon au Green Club de Romanel

Le Racketlon était à l’honneur au Green Club de Romanel pour le tournoi du RC Léman. Un très joli tournoi avec plusieurs nouveaux joueurs et joueuses. Toujours dans une ambiance fair-play et sympathique !

Voici le résumé des résultats :

Tableau A – Femmes

Dans ce tableau A qui était une poule de 4, Marine Pelet a fait respecter son statut de favorite du tournoi en l’emportant assez facilement. La badiste Sarah Piffaretti prend la 2e place et Chuen-Ru Li la 3e place pour sa première participation.

Tableau B – Femmes

Le tableau B était également une poule de 4. Pour son 2e racketlon après celui de Marin, Eléonore Engel remporte le tableau en perdant seulement 2 sports sur tous ses matchs ! Belle performance ! Noémie Danthine (2e) et Morgane Ducrey (3e) complètent le podium.

Tableau A – Hommes

2e victoire consécutive pour Julien Meister ! Après sa victoire à Marin il y a 3 semaines, Meister récidive à Lausanne. Après une victoire au Gummiarm lors de son 1er tour face à Alexandre Gilliéron (le 1er de sa carrière !), il n’a pas eu besoin de ressortir la raquette de tennis de son sac. En finale, il domine Valentin Henin avec notamment un 21-5 au squash. Tristan Breuillé s’empare du bronze.

Tableau B – Hommes

Dans un tableau B très homogène, c’est Léo Dafflon qui tire son épingle du jeu et prouve sa belle progression. Il gagne le tournoi en remportant 3 matchs très disputés avec notamment une très belle finale face à Damien Zwahlen. A noter aussi un véritable tour de force en demi-finale. En effet, après avoir perdu les 3 premiers sports face au jeune Andreas Kotala, Dafflon marquait un retard de 19 pts ! Il a cependant réussi à gérer parfaitement son tennis en gagnant 21-1 au tennis ! Certainement l’exploit de la journée ! Kotala se consolera avec la 3e place.

Tableau C – Hommes

Dans le tableau C, une finale entre spécialistes de squash et habitués du tournoi ! Stéphane Glanzmann l’emporte face à Eric de la Torre sans tennis grâce à sa domination en badminton et en squash (21-6 21-6). Le badiste Raphaël Lienhard prend la 3e place au détriment de Adrian Spillmann dans la petite finale.

Tableau D – Hommes

Un très beau tableau D avec une majorité de joueurs qui participaient à leur 1er tournoi. C’est le badiste Gaetan Gabioud qui sort vainqueur après 4 victoires. Il bat en finale Emilien Gauthey grâce notamment à un beau 21-2 au badminton. Clément Gabry repart avec le bronze.

Merci à tous les joueurs et joueuses !

IWT French Open

This weekend, the 1st international tournament of this year took place and Swiss delegation of

8 players travelled to Paris Montreuil to compete. When they returned, they not only had a bunch of sweaty shirts in their luggage, but also 5 medals!

 

Traditionally, the tournament started with the doubles competition. Nicolas Lenggenhager,

who recently reached the top 10 in the world singles rankings, played for the first time in

Mixed A with Nicole Eisler. In their first match, everything went according to plan. In the

final against the pair from the host country (Myriam Enmer and Damian André) the opposite

was unfortunately the case. However, they were happy to win silver on their joint debut.

 

Lenggenhager then also took bronze in the men's doubles together with Matthew Davidson

from England. This in a close match against the two Frenchmen Laurent Cocriamont and

Anthony Duthuillé.

 

The other pairs with Swiss participation unfortunately did not get beyond the preliminary

round matches.

 

In the singles, the Swiss delegation picked up three medals - three times bronze. Nicole Eisler

showed a good tournament and was not far away from the winner Anna-Klara Ahlmer from

Sweden with -9. In the small final against elite newcomer Aurélie Haurant from France,

however, Eisler left nothing to be desired.

 

Youngster Lucas Mateo Moreno followed suit and also won bronze in the Junior U16 by a

large margin. Graham King also showed an extremely solid game in the Seniors +50 small final. Congratulations to both for bronze.

 

In the Men's elite, there were 2 Swiss players at the start. Oliver Bühler and Nicolas

Lenggenhager both won their first match in the 16-player tableau; however, they lost their

2nd match and consequently met in the match for 7th and 8th place. An exciting match:

Bühler could have won table tennis after getting to 20-all, but too many unforced errors scuppered that. Lenggenhager was able to capitalise on his badminton strengths to extend his lead; and again in squash. Now Lenggenhager needed just 5 points in tennis - which is not the easiest task against tennis specialist Bühler. Bühler made a solid start without any mistakes. As time went on, however, a few small errors crept in, which led to points and victory for Lenggenhager.

 

Manfred Grab (Men B), Valentin Henin (Men C) and Benoit Truc (Men D) also recorded

victories in their tableaux.

 

A successful weekend with fair games, smiling faces, exciting matches, peaceful dancing, sweating people and good conversations in all languages. Pure Racketlon!
