Congratulations to our mixed double tournament winners. Nicki McGrath from St Andrews and Mark Tuttle from David Lloyd won the D1 – 3 competition, and Hannah Pallett and Josh Robinson won the D4 – 6 competition. Nicki and Mark won a marathon final where they lost the first game but battled back to win the next 2, that was despite starting off of on –20 and having 1 to serve to their opponents 5. Crazy!
Hannah and Josh had some tough games en route to their win. They needed a play off to get through their group, they then had to beat the top seeds in the semi final, and in the final they beat last years winners. Both couples showed how great skill and determination to pick up their titles.
The Mid Lancs mixed doubles tournament is on Sunday the 20th @ Clayton Sports Centre. Kick off is 9:30am for Divisions 1-3 and 12noon for Divisions 4-6. We have about a dozen couples who have entered which is an excellent turnout, so good luck to all of those. Enjoy the day.
