The Men's Doubles championships for the new season took place in an enthusiastic, loud and excitable atmosphere at Crusaders club. convincing winners of group 1 were Nigel & Finlay Keal winning all their matches convincingly with the loss of only 1 game in total.
In group 2 Clive and Ryan Mitchell went close to qualifying in second place with two fine victories but all were outdone by Derek Wood & Mick Johnson who swept to victory in all their matches without dropping a game.
the final began well for Derek & Mick winning the first two games with ease but a change of tactics and more cautious play by the Keal's saw a swing of fortune and they squeaked home by 3 games to 2.
The first Men's doubles win for a father and son team ,I believe
