Collapse AllWimbledon Park Doubles - Round 26 | Thursday 6 February 2020 to Wednesday 15 April 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 11 March 2020)

A commendable number of matches were played even though the round ended prematurely, so we have absolutely no qualms about handing out the gongs! Thank you all for playing and providing such good tennis memories to live on while wait for the chance to get back on court. Stay well and well done!

Group Summary:

Terrific scheduling and some excellent tennis propelled Colin and Ekaterina to the top of the table and though Elizabeth and Natalia beat them in a great match, even without the premature end to the round, the team couldn't be caught - the point won for the set they took of our bronze medalists ensured that. Well done to them and everyone for playing such memorable tennis.

Despite the score, there were some great rallies and some very close games that could have gone either way, which Julian and I somehow managed to edge.

Group Summary:

As with Group One, our leaders Danielle & Kate assembled an impressive points tally to make them the comfortable front-runners and our winners this time. Of course Beck and Yannick were also going strongly and who knows, given the time perhaps they could have challenged for the lead. That, like so may things, will have to wait for another round!
