Collapse AllPavilion Doubles - Round 27 | Thursday 5 December 2019 to Wednesday 26 February 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 15 January 2020)

Just a small, winter-warmer of a round this time. But spring is just around the corner so do hope you can join us for more doubles action as the weather hots up!

Group Summary:

A real case of who dares wins! Jim and Maria braved the cold of a north London winter on three occasions. Now that didn't necessarily give them the best winning record (three teams all notched up a win) but by earning a point for a set won in their loss to Louise and Annabel, Jim and Maria won the points chase! Of course more matches played could well have changed things, but well done to our champs who played all their matches and topped the group!

Final Rankings:

  1. Maria Harrison & Jim Harrison [W1, L2] 3 WINNER
  2. Esther Gillham & Ewan Flynn [W1] 2 RUNNER UP
  3. Louise Sharpe & Annabel Walton South [W1] 2
