On Sat 15th a number of us entered the Lings Doubles tournament. This is a highly entertaining tournament run by Mike Broadbent our County Chairman.
We entered 4 Junior pairs and 3 senior pairs, one of which was a Junior member pairing with another Junior from Buckingham.
If you have never played doubles before it's fast and a little chaotic, but great fun. It was lovely to see the Juniors laughing out loud on court during the tournament. One of our Junior parents said she wasn't going to stay because she thought it would be boring, but then was highly entertained and stayed the whole afternoon!
Our Junior pairing of Emma and Caitlin won the their tournament with David and Jonnie, also Brackley, in 2nd place.
Ollie (Brackley Junior) was delighted to win his match on his final game. David and I were a reputable mid table in our group.
The final was amazing to watch and won 2-1 by Simon and our very own 1st team member Ashley.
Needless to say all the juniors played in great spirits and were a credit to the club.
