SJRS Festival – Smashing number of entries!


Salaamun Alaikum,

On this auspicious day, may I wish you and your families Khushali Mubarak! 

SJRS are delighted to announce that registration for the SJRS Championships 2019, a Festival of Rackets for Gentlemen and Boys has now closed with 433 players participating and over 900 event entries across the four racket sports. 

We are truly humbled by the overwhelming interest in racket sports across our communities with entires from almost every single European Jamaat and some from further afield including North America, Middle East and Africa. 

The festival is truly inter- generational with players from the age of 7 years to the age of 82 years taking part, bringing entire families and communities together in the spirit of rackethood! 

The festival is a family event with a fanzone featuring exciting interactive games, exhibition matches, racket personalities, family picnic, eclectic food stalls and live Wimbledon screening. We look forward to hosting your entire families for brunch and afternoon chai on both days! 

May I also remind you that registration for the SJRS Marhaba Championships 2019, a Featival of Rackets for Ladies and Girls taking place on 20-21 July remains open. Please visit for more details and to register. 

My team and I are working very hard to ensure you have the best festival experience. These events are not possible without volunteers and sponsors who are at the heart of our success and we thank them for their loyal support. 

There are still some sponsorship opportunities available, please contact for further details. 

Let’s remember each other in our prayers during this Holy month and the nights of Qadr!
