On May 28, in Granby, Qc, racketlon fans gathered for the first event on canadian soil since the pandemic.
Three categories were contested: A, B and C.
In the A, the final featured a battle between top seeded player Pat Laplante and elite badminton and tennis player Maxime-Rome Gosselin. Maxime won badminton easily while Patrick did the same in table tennis and squash. Even if Maxime won the 11 points tennis match, Pat had already scored enough points to capture the tittle. Jeremy Easterbrook got third by defeating top junior table tennis and badminton player Guillaume Blais.
In the B, the very experienced Dany Lessard lost a very close battle to tennis expert Charles Normandin. Dany was not able to score the much needed 10 points in tennis.
The C division was mixed and Line Bellerose showed the young men that her experience and talent was too much to handle. Frederic Fontaine finished second.
The awards ceremony was held after a visit the convenience store ‘cause it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere…
Many thanks to Richard Soucy and Patrick Laplante, the tournament directors.
