Collapse AllKennington & Brockwell Parks Doubles - Round 25 | Thursday 4 July 2019 to Wednesday 11 September 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 7 August 2019)

Getting four players on court at one time is never easy, so playing 70% of the possible matches definitely deserves a round of applause. It looks like it was great fun. Here's to the next round!

Group Summary:

All new teams in this group, so which pairing would come through to top the table? In the end there was no catching Paolo & Thiago who romped home with four straight-sets wins. A much closer call for second place with two teams tied on six points. That had to be settled by the head-to-head, and silver goes to Adam & Lewis. Well done everyone for playing all these matches. Hope they were fun!

Group Summary:

What a great set of matches, all brought to life for us at tennis HQ by the sporting and entertaining commentaries. There really shouldn't have been a losing team, at least we suspect Ben & Patrick might feel that way! They notched up five great wins including an epic win over Olivia and James, and yet they were denied the group win by the set conceded in that match and the extra win their opponents were able to play. Thank you both teams for making this such a good group and thank you third-placed Johanna & Polly (and the chasing pack) for playing your part in a memorable round.

Player Comments:

  • "Patrick finally met his match in Jamie, who was able to use every inch of his giant wingspan to ably intercept our ground strokes at the net. This necessitated taking an areal option which had some very interesting outcomes given the gale force winds, necessitating everyone to watch the ball very closely at all times. All in all a very enjoyable and competitive game!"  -- Ben

  • "2 and a half hours of fiercely competitive tennis played on a glorious Friday evening. Charles and Sital kept the pressure on throughout with their low, skiddy serves and consistent ground strokes, however we were just able to get over the line, with the match having been in the balance right up to the final point. Very enjoyable outing to Dulwich."  -- Ben

  • "Throughout the match no pair was able to get more than two games ahead of the other which is a testament to the competitive nature of play. Rumours continue to circulate that North Korea are keeping tabs on James as they look to develop a weapon as devastating as his intercontinental ballistic missile of a serve. There was a new dawn for Kim Jung Un and his people as the sunset on Brockwell Court No 2 tonight. #RocketMan "  -- Ben
