Collapse AllClapham Common Women's Singles - Round 5 | Thursday 24 September 2020 to Wednesday 4 November 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 21 October 2020)

Such a shame we had to end the round two weeks early due to lockdown but at least quite a few matches had already been played across the groups! A great effort and we look forward to getting going again soon!

Group Summary:

Darelle's clean sweep of 5 wins saw her finish as Group 1 champ although she had to work hard against Tanya in a 3 setter that "could have gone either way". Runner up Jessica had a strong round too winning 4 matches, again her closest was against Tanya who took her to a match tiebreak.

  1. Darelle Redmond [W5] 12 includes 2 bonus points WINNER

Group Summary:

Congratulations to Pippa for finishing as Group 3 champ by winning 3 matches although her fourth match against Hannah was left poised at 2 games all in the third set... it's a shame the round had to end early before this could be completed!
