Jimmy Mitchell Handicap Doubles Tournament 17th June 2017 - Results

posted Jun 17, 2017, 11:30 AM by Fort Matilda

The Jimmy Mitchell handicap doubles tournament was held on Saturday afternoon, with more than twenty members turning up to play and watch. With a wide range of abilities the handicaps can be a lottery! We had some very close games and interesting tactics from some of the men!! The first rounds were timed, and this made all the players work very hard to accumulate as many games as they could to make it through to the semi-finals. In group one Calum and Dany won all their matches but failed to win enough games to get through to the next round. The final was a very closely fought match with Marlene and Kevin taking the lead at 4-2 against Adrienne and Adam, but the later pairing proved too strong and finally took the set to 6-5. A wonderful afternoon tea of sandwiches and cakes was enjoyed by all and even the weather was perfect for playing. Lesley had organised great prizes again and all our winners were delighted to take home the coveted keyrings! This is a relaxed tournament which can be enjoyed by all members of the club and it's great to see first team players partnering up with not so experienced players giving everyone a chance of winning.
