Collapse AllNorth Devon Singles - Round 4 | Thursday 16 March 2017 to Wednesday 10 May 2017 (Midpoint: Thursday 13 April 2017)

A good round for this still young league, with some strong competition and many memorable matches. Thank for all your efforts and we hope you enjoyed yourselves. Please do help spread the word if you can, we'd love to see the league grow particularly with summer on it's way.

Group Summary:

A round of applause to Ashley and Michael for their incredible efforts in their marathon 7-6, 6-7, 7-5 match. Rupert raced into the lead with four superb wins and bonus points to boot, to become the new champ on his first appearance in the league. There was a real tussle for second with Ashley, John and Andy all tying on eight points. Head to heads are unable to separate the three, so we need to do some calculations....and it doesn't come much closer than this John takes second place thanks to one fewer game conceded - well played all!

Group Summary:

Jon played all his matches and earned his bonus points to leave nothing to chance, and this positive attitude certainly paid off as he finished the round in first place with three impressive wins. Now Trevor managed to beat Jon in their epic head to head, so what might have happened if he had played a few more matches? Hopefully we will find out next time. Adam adds a couple of victories to his name to finish as the runner up.
