The 2017 Club Championships continued on Tuesday with the Open Doubles.
Five pairs of players played a round-robin. The ultimate winners were Maciej “Magic”
Dlogozima and Lawrence Harvey who won all four of their matches but were pushed very
hard by the runners-up Elroy Hull and Graham Trimming. In the match that decided
the destiny of the title, Magic and Lawrence recovered from 8-6 down in the first
game and 8-3 and 10-6 in the second to go 2-0 up. Elroy and Graham fought back to
square the match 2-2, saving a match point in the fourth along the way, then the
fifth game was nip and tuck with the winners ultimately securing the match 11-8
Keith Hall and Zsolt Varga finished in third place after another close result against
Bas Mocharrafie and Elena Tant but had to recover from 2-0 down to do so.
The Club Championships concludes next week with the Open Singles on Tuesday (16th,
7:40 pm). There is no pre-booking involved, members are invited to simply turn up
and register by the time noted.
Open Doubles winners: Lawrence Harvey & Maciej Dlogozima
