2017 Ellenborough Over 50 Section Christmas Drawn Doubles Competition

A fun event was held on Tuesday morning, 19th December, with a drawn doubles competition followed by a fish and chips meal and a quiz.

There were 36 players or 18 teams in the drawn doubles with 12 groups of 3 and the top two teams in each group going through.  Four seeded pairs then got a bye to the quarter finals whilst the other 8 teams played knockout matches for the remaining four places.

Gill and Derek were the winners of one semi-final.  Despite losing their way a little and dropping the second game 12-14, they won the first and third games convincingly to reach the final.  In the other semi-final, Thanos and Rosetta won in straight games against Harold and Dave despite a close second game.

The final produced some excellent play by all four players.  Thanos and Rosetta took the first two games 11-6 and 11-8 but Gill and Derek fought back, taking the third game 11-7.  Thanos and Rosetta, however, were not to be denied and they came back strongly in the fourth to win it 11-5 and take the match by 3 games to 1.  Well done to everyone who took part and congratulations to our winners and runners-up.
