Collapse AllDorchester Singles - Round 18 | Thursday 27 August 2020 to Wednesday 21 October 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 23 September 2020)

Just a single group again in this latest round of Dorchester Tennis League but with nearly three quarters of all possible matches played it was a busy one. Sadly there were a couple of retirements but lots of close scorelines and entertaining match commentaries too so we hope to see you back for more in the next round!

Group Summary:

Congratulations to Chris for going one better than his runner up spot last round by topping the table this time with 5 wins, 2 of which were retirements... including in the title decider against runner up Dinko. Meanwhile Mike won a "character building" 3 set tussle against Ian and Dinko did well to win a close first set against Nick to set the stage for a 2 set win.

Player Comments:
