Collapse AllTrafford Singles - Round 3 | Friday 3 March 2017 to Thursday 27 April 2017 (Midpoint: Thursday 30 March 2017)

Apologies for the late running of this winners report for round three in Trafford (it slipped into a black hole in our system!). Thanks to everyone who got involved in this still young league, and congratulations to the new group champions. We'd love to see numbers grow particularly with summer upon us, so do please continue to help spread the word if you can!

Group Summary:

A shame not everyone got off the start line in what was already a small group. The couple of the matches that were played were good competitive affairs, with Simon and Bradley finishing with a win apiece. Crucially Simon beat Bradley in their close head to head and therefore takes home the gold.

Player Comments:

  • "This was an epic match on a lovely sunny day - we were very evenly matched with many games going to deuce 4or5 times! We went over our 2 hour booked time on court and had to finish the game one of the older less desirable courts Wythenshawe - but we finished the game eventually- what a great game!"  -- Richard
