Izzy Bramhall has won an individual silver in the World Championships of Racketlon losing only to the 24yr old defending world champion.

It is eight years since Izzy competed in these championships and has come back despite having had a total of 8 orhopeadic surgergies over the years.

Izzy was also part of the GB elite racketlon team who won gold overall with Izzy hitting a tennis winner to seal the historic victory.
Great Britain are the new Racketlon World Champions. They defeated Germany on a historic night in Leipzig which saw Great Britain etched into the racketlon record books.
Izzy Bramhall sealed the victory for Great Britain after defeating Amke Fischer at tennis. Bramhall was joined on the podium by emotional teammates Dan Busby, Duncan Stahl, Luke Griffiths, Leon Griffiths and Hannah Boden.
While Great Britain have improved dramatically at the junior and senior level in recent years, this is the first time they have won Racketlon’s most prestigious team event. They came agonisingly close in 2018 but fell four points short to Austria in the final.

In Racketlon you play your opponent at TABLE TENNIS, BADMINTON, SQUASH and then TENNIS (in that order), with each sport played to 21 points: the player who scores the most points across all four sports wins the Racketlon match.
