Collapse AllBattersea Park Doubles - Round 19 | Thursday 23 January 2020 to Wednesday 1 April 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 26 February 2020)
A great round in Battersea! Groups were committed, friendly, and full of new as well as familiar contenders. It was such a shame it had to be cut short. Here's to the next one, whenever that may be!
A good start to this round, unfortunately cut short! Richard and Alex claim two wins, having a great start to their debut in the doubles! Sophy and Nami pushed back and earned their Match of the Group title against George and Howard, stealing the win in the tie break. Then we also see Paul and Nelly, runners up in the previous round, looking to start their journey to the top with a win against Oliver and George. But alas, we will never know! Well played all and congratulations to the winning pair!

A very good start to the league with Ben and Joel getting out the blocks early and earning their extra bonus points to take the top spot. Hot on their tail though were Carol and John who had two comfortable wins and a close loss against George and Evangelos who take the Comment of the Group! Poor weather didn't seem to dampen anyone's spirits and well done for committing, despite Storm Dennis approaching!
