Collapse AllMeadows, Edinburgh Doubles - Round 7 | Thursday 18 July 2019 to Wednesday 25 September 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 21 August 2019)

We hope others can follow your example and join our next doubles round - a few more teams would really add to the excitement. Well done for playing the vast majority of the available matches and here is to getting back on court soon.

Group Summary:

A little too straightforward for Liam & Jamie who make it back to back group wins thanks to four pretty straight forward wins. Congratulations to them not only for the strong tennis, but for getting all their matches played. David & Philipp were the strongest of the chasing pack and earn the silver. No commentaries to add more colour to the proceedings but we hope the matches were fun!
