Collapse AllHendon Parks Singles - Round 19 | Thursday 24 November 2016 to Wednesday 1 February 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 28 December 2016)

There was a big contrast between groups in this round - group one showed great commitment whereas group two unfortunately didn't get going. Thank you to everyone who got involved and please remember to let us know if there is anything we can do to help matches be played . Here's to more tennis in 2017!

Group Summary:

This was as close as it comes at the top with Jeff and Sam tied on twelve points with an equal win/loss record and both earned bonus points. Unfortunately we didn't have a head to head between the two so we have to go to the rule book to determine the champion....and it is Jeff who takes the title as the eliminator method deducts two points from Sam for a walkover win - well played both. Many thanks for all your efforts in organising matches early - everyone who got involved earned their bonus points!

  1. Jeff Bathija 7.1 [W5] 12 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
