Group Summary:

Lots of new teams in this group so it was interesting to see who would come out on top. In the end, it was old-hands Razzak and Zeina who made it to the top though Hector and Lindsay did get their scalp in their head-to-head. A couple of walkovers boosted the points but no doubt who the group winner was!

  1. Razzak Mirjan & Zeina Mirjan [W5, L1] 10 WINNER
  2. Hector De Courcy-Wheeler & Lindsay Coulson [W2, L1] 4 RUNNER UP
