Collapse AllCarlisle Singles - Round 3 | Thursday 27 April 2017 to Wednesday 21 June 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 24 May 2017)

Good to be back underway in Carlisle in 2017, albeit with one small group. There were some fantastic close contests, and we'd love to see more of these next time with a greater number of players involved so do please spread the word if you can!

Group Summary:

Jordan played all of his matches and bagged his bonus points, and this proved to be a winning formula as he finished the round with two terrific wins (including an epic victory over Kurt) to take the title. After just missing out to Jordan in their marathon head to head, Kurt picked himself up to defeat Allan in two tight sets and claims the silver.
