Collapse AllWandsworth All Star Doubles - Round 14 | Thursday 20 June 2019 to Wednesday 28 August 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 24 July 2019)

A lopsided round where group 3 played 100% of matches available and group 1 played just 3! Doubles can be difficult to organise but do get in touch if you are not hearing back from your opponents. Or if you are the people not responding, please get in touch and let us know what the problem is, even if it's just that old chestnut of being really busy!

Group Summary:

Charles G and Charles S win the quietest of groups where just three matches were played! What happened? Of course doubles can be hard to organise and we very much appreciate everyone's efforts, but please do let us know if you are struggling another time. We are very keen to do everything we can to get matches played!

Group Summary:

A lively group with lots of matches played, albeit a few unfinished and a shame to see one withdrawal. But very well done to group champs Alexander and Robert who had tight matches all the way. Runners up Georgina and Edward weren't far behind. If only they had finished their 3 tbcs!

Well done group 3. The number might have been small but every single match was played! Great stuff. The top three players all won 3 and lost one but Don and Jenny got their bonus points and finished one point ahead of runners up Mel and Nick who were one point ahead of 3rd placed Beth and Jennifer.

  • "A great match! A fairly straightforward first set but once Mel and Nick got warmed up it was a different story, winning the second set tiebreak and taking us to a hard fought third set that could have gone either way. In the end Jenny and I just managed to edge it! Well played guys and good luck with the rest of the round. D & J "  -- Don
