SWT Dubai Racketlon Classic Announced for November 4-6

Over the last few months, the FIR has been working hard on a project to bring Racketlon to Dubai. After a difficult 18 months of COVID-19 uncertainty, we now have a hugely exciting opportunity to launch a brand-new Super World Tour tournament this November in Dubai, alongside our partners the Dubai Sports Council and Dubai Tourism.

Taking place on November 4-6, the SWT Dubai Racketlon Classic represents one of the most exciting new tournament announcements for many years!

Duncan Stahl / FIR President:

“Bringing a new, prestigious SWT tournament to Dubai opens up so many fantastic, long-term possibilities for Racketlon. The playing facilities, climate, location for both European and Asian based players, standard of player’s hotels and general event infrastructure in Dubai are amazing…and we have a long-term goal (starting in 2022) to potentially stage a “World Tour Finals” in Dubai at the end of every season.  

But in 2021 and in recognition of the efforts and belief that the Dubai Sports Council & Dubai Tourism have in Racketlon, it is vital that we now take this chance presented to us to stage a unique SWT this November – staging this tournament this year will help solidify Dubai as a long-term destination for a prestigious annual tournament. It is an opportunity we have to take!”
