Collapse AllKennington & Brockwell Parks Doubles - Round 26 | Thursday 3 October 2019 to Wednesday 11 December 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 6 November 2019)

23 matches were played in this round which was nearly half of the total possible. Given how hard it can be to get 4 people on the same court at the same time, that is no mean feat, especially at this time of year. Well done all!

Group Summary:

The tennis was definitely lighting up the gloomy weather with some good aggressive play and ding dong battles. David and James top the group, partly thanks to a walkover, but all credit, and bragging rights, to Rhys and Ben who beat them in the head to head.

  1. David Morley & James Smith [W4, L1] 9 WINNER
