Jesper Ratzer and Martina Meißl defended their titles as the Racket Masters after triumphing on a blustery weekend at the Surrey Sports Park. After two previous world tour visits to the SSP played in unusually exceptional weather, the 2016 event saw players battle the outside tennis in conditions that were a far more accurate representation of a British Summer. Elsewhere there were titles for: Katie Barclay (Ladies B), Luke Griffiths (Men’s C & U13s), Lillian Druve (Ladies Vets), Ross Wilson (Men’s D), Martyn Langston (Men’s O55s), Julian Clapp (Men’s 60s), David Bennett (U16s), Kresten Hougaard & Jesper Ratzer (Men’s A Doubles), Lieselot de Bleeckere & Lauren Whiteman (Ladies A Doubles), Barbara Capper & Dan Busby (Mixed A Doubles), Michelle Hall & Alistair Prades (Mixed B Doubles) and Jon Ben & Martyn Langston (Men’s D Doubles). However, the true star of the weekend was Richard Middleton. Entering four events and contesting 1287 points across 44 sets, he revelled in the opportunity to player lots of matches and came away with four winners trophies. Richard dominated the Men’s B, Men’s B Doubles (with Mark Jackson), Men’s O45s and Men’s O45s Doubles (with Thomas Knaack), in a weekend where he finished with a record of: Played: 12 Won: 12 Sets For: 32 Sets Against: 12 Points For: 777 Points Against: 510.
