Tennis - Doubles Box League - Round 8 – end of round summary

Dear tennis players,

Well done to those of you who competed in Round Eight of the Tennis Doubles Box League.

During this round, 53 matches were played, across 12 leagues - great effort by everyone arranging to play, at a time when the nights have started to draw in and temperatures began to fall.

The next round will start on Monday 01 November, with matches to be played over the following 2 months, ending Sunday 09 January.

New pairs wishing to join are very welcome - all levels, there is a league for everyone! - please sign-up on the club noticeboard (if you have not done so already), or let me know via email, entry closes on Wednesday 27 October

Current pairs will be automatically entered into next round, unless advised otherwise. Please let me know ASAP, if you do not wish to continue.

PREMIER LEAGUE MENS - [Winners = Paul F. & John W.]
A very closely contested group with 4 pairs all finishing on 4 points - top place was given to Paul & John for winning two matches, without dropping a set.

LEAGUE ONE MENS - [Winners = Magne A & Hugo A.R]
Three wins out of three for the (other) father and son pair, flying into the Premier League. Well navigated Captain Magne & co-pilot, Hugo.

LEAGUE TWO MENS - [Winners = Chris Smyth & Richard N]
The table might show 4 wins out of 4 for Chris & Richard, but they did not get it easy, with 2 of their matches won on the 10 point tie-break.

LEAGUE THREE MENS - [Winners = Bill R. & Alan B]
Well done to Bill and Alan, organising their matches early to get their 2 bonus points and some decent wins against Brad & Scott and Brent & Kevin.

LEAGUE FOUR MENS - [Winners = Stuart S. & James N.]
Three wins out of three for Stuart and James + bonus points - however, (again) they were made to fight for it, with two wins going to a third set tie-breaker against Ben & Ray and Ben & Jerry's.

PREMIER LEAGUE LADIES - [Winners = Fiona H. & Heather B]
Congratulations to Fiona & Heather for retaining their title, without dropping a set - will they make it three in row?

LEAGUE ONE LADIES - [Winners = Maria R. & Jackie L.]
Great round for new pair Maria and Jackie, three wins out of three - good luck in the Premier League

LEAGUE TWO LADIES - [Winners = Sue P. & Lynda S.C.]
Just the one match played, however it was a close one with Sue & Lynda edging it on the tie-break, against Bonnie & Susie.

PREMIER LEAGUE MIXED - [Winners = Colin J. & Kari]
Close at the top, with Fiona & Martin and the 'champions' both getting two wins and their bonus points - however, despite losing the head-to-head, Colin and Kari secured top place by 1 extra point, awarded for winning a set in their match.

LEAGUE ONE MIXED - [Winners = Mike C. & Linda F]
Three wins, without dropping a set - well done guys - are you going stay in the stay in the Premier League this time?

LEAGUE TWO MIXED - [Winners = Nicola C. & Stuart S.]
Another group decided by a third set tie-breaker against James and Vanessa - some might say it is a cruel, however the same applies in the doubles at the US Open!

LEAGUE THREE MIXED - [Winners = Andzrej & Natalia]
Well played Andrzej and Natalia - the only father and daughter pair in the Box Leagues ... as far as I know.

Final tables are available on the club website.

Good luck to everyone in the next round - the groups will be emailed and available on the website soon after the closing date
