Mens Doubles Summer Tournament

The men’s doubles final took place on Wednesday evening September 16th and with conditions dry and fine the scene was set for an exciting contest between top seeds Richard Whaley and Adam Turner who entertained Andy Roberts and Richard Franks. There was plenty of big hitting on show and with serves booming down the quality was there for all to see. Andy was enjoying himself with plenty of success at the net whilst Richard Franks was defending manfully and covering every inch of court as always. Adam was using his tremendous forehand to good effect whilst Richard Whaley was content to unleash a plethora of weapons which kept his opponents guessing all game.

A close opening rubber saw Whaley and Turner take the set 6-3 and despite a valiant fightback in the second, the favourites were able to match that score running out 6-3,6-3 winners to lift the trophy.

A really exciting competition which was well supported and thanks to all who contributed this summer.

Each pair will have three group games with the winner of each section advancing to the Quarter Final along with the three best placed runners up. The winners of each Quarter advance to the Semi Final and those winners advance to the Final. If there is a tie at the top of a group, the winner will be determined on head to head record. If still unresolved the highest number of sets gained will count followed by games won. Each match is best of three sets with a championship tie break to ten played as set three. If players want to play a full final set that is fine if both agree and time allows.

If players can arrange their group matches themselves starting from week commencing June 22nd and text me the scores I will update the tables thanks. I will forward each player a list of their opponents contact details. Any questions contact Mike Triffitt on 07508 057744
