Collapse AllCavendish Rec & Queensmead Singles - Round 17 | Thursday 18 July 2019 to Wednesday 11 September 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 14 August 2019)

Another round to be proud of - the vast majority of matches played and some brilliantly competitive matches played in the true spirit of the league. Right, up for doing it all gain? Hope so!

Group Summary:

No one could keep an entirely clean slate in this excellent group, but almost everyone earned their bonus points and that's quite a testament to your effective scheduling. Not surprisingly perhaps the race for the top was about about as tight as it could be. Third placed Gaurav was just a point behind the leaders and Tomisin and Kieran both ended up with thirteen points. The two can be split only by their head-to-head, a three setter which went Tomisin's way!

  1. Tomisin Adedipe 9.2 [W5, L1] 13 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Kieran Eivers [W5, L2] 13 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP

Group Summary:

Another really close group where one more match played allowed a player to turn the tables on an opponent... Gavin, runner up, was undefeated in the round and beat Sean (in a great three setter) but Sean played one more match than his opponent and that meant the point he claimed in his match with Gavin was enough to take him to the top of the table. Great round for both players and for the highly competitive chasing pack!
