THE multi-racket sport of racketlon is developing quite a tradition at Ipswich Sports Club.

As well as producing a world U-16 champion in 2005 with Ashley Watling, Ipswich Sports Club has now produced a British vice-champion in Jane Cook.

Cook returned home from the British Closed Racketlon Championships at Hatfield as runner-up.

On her way to the final she beat the England no. 5 Lorna See and England no. 6 Fiona Mary-Sime.

However, in the final the British no.1 Natalie Lawrence proved too strong. As this was Jane's second tournament it was still some result.

Jane said: “A little bit of work at the badminton and who knows?”
