Collapse AllBattersea Park Doubles - Round 16 | Thursday 14 February 2019 to Wednesday 24 April 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 20 March 2019)
Definitely a game of 2 halves for Battersea Park doubles during this round, Group 2 succeeded in playing all their matches, while Group 1 were a little slower off the mark. We know it's tricky to organise 4 people instead of 2, but reading the commentaries from Group 2, it does show just how enjoyable doubles is, so it's worth making the effort! Well done to all our winners and all players who had matches, we look forward to seeing everyone out on court again soon, sign up now for the next round!
Unfortunately we only had one match played during this round for Group 1 of the doubles at Battersea Park, which was a little disappointing. Congratulations to Alex and Jack who therefore take the title, with Jake and Grace as runners-up. If you're struggling to schedule/play matches do let us know, we will do our best to help! Hope to see you all out on court again soon!
- Alex Smyth & Jack Watton [W1] 2 WINNER
- Jake Barr & Grace Pearson [L1] RUNNER UP
- David Staton & Chris Mackenzie-ross
- Mikaela Wetterling & Dick Soderberg
- Tom Dannatt & James Smyth
Match of the Group:Alex Smyth & Jack Watton bt Jake Barr & Grace Pearson (Mar 11) 6-1, 6-2
Congratulations to everyone in Group 2 for some great scheduling to get all matches played - no mean feat when scheduling 4 people's diaries each time! Lovely to see pairs getting to play familiar opponents and learning how to win against them - David and Sarah took revenge for a long 3-setter last time against Carol Ann and John with a 2-set victory this time - what will happen in the next round?! Well done to Miranda and Thomas, their 3 wins give them the winners place this time, and David and Sarah take a close second as runners-up. Great to read about so many long rallies and matches played in good spirit, we're glad you're all enjoying your doubles fun!
