VINTAGE MXD DOUBLES CLUB TOURNAMENT

There was a fabulous start to the vintage mixed doubles at the club last Sunday. Thanks to organisers Marie and Dickie, following the ‘Charters algorithm for pairs and court selection. Half way through the fourth round the skies opened with heavy rain, which flooded the courts, so play was abandoned. Dickie hoped to be able to post the results/play off once he has dried out! Thanks to everyone who took part! Thanks to all who took part – from Marie and Dickie.

FIRST UPDATE: Whilst rain stopped play for the 24 members taking part all pairs managed 3 full matches and got part way into the 4th – we have counted 3 games from the latter matches and this gives us the following:

In Group A Janet Palmer & Tom Barker won with 13 games. Runners up were Carolyn Rothwell & Richard Sharpe – and Ann Welch & David Rowley both with 12 games.

In Group B Anthea Davis & Paul Stott will play-off against Roseanne Eckart & Nigel Sykes both pairs having won 11 games. This match to be played before finals day on the 19th to give a pair to play against Janet and Tom on that day (Runners up in this group were Marie and peter).
