Following the recent acquisition of Kirby Ngan, Bristol Jets are pleased to announce the signing of 29-year-old Richard Eidestedt.
The English and Swedish dual nationality player has enjoyed success in both the doubles and mixed doubles disciplines, most notably winning the Toulouse Challenge, Scottish and Irish Open and coming Runner Up in the National Championships.
Eidestedt told Bristol Sport: “The idea behind the NBL really appeals to me. The way it involves all disciplines in the sport in such an entertaining way for the audience is brilliant.
“Im so excited that Bristol Jets have given me the opportunity to represent them in the league in their opening season and I am really looking forward to getting started.
“Having spoken to Rebecca [Pantaney] it is clear there is something really exciting happening with the Jets and Bristol sport. I was very keen to be a part of it.
“I hope to bring a lot of experience to an otherwise relatively young team of players, and of course, as many wins as possible!”
The Jets first season in the NBL will begin on November, 17 away to Team Derby.
